    Wandering Eye: The cult of "Too Many Cooks," a plastic-bag ban, and jury selection begins for the BGF, with some truly crazy juror responses
    Over the weekend, Adult Swim premiered the short "Too Many Cooks," and the internet promptly freaked out over what it called "an instant cult classic." The 11-minute-long video, which starts as a fake title sequence to an '80s sitcom and then devolves into something kooky and twisted and weird, has garnered more than 1.6 million views on YouTube since it went up on Friday—which seems like a lot, until you compare it to "One Direction: FOUR HANGOUT," a 40-minute-long live stream recording on YouTube that went online Sunday and already has more than 1.7 million hits, or to the band's video for "Steal My Girl," which went up two weeks ago and has more than 27 million views. (Although it's worth noting that, as Caitlin Dewey recently explained in the Washington Post, teenage girls are incredibly adept at making the things they like go viral.) And keep in mind that, while the outpouring of thinkpieces may suggest that "everyone" is watching "Too Many Cooks," 1.6 million hits means that, assuming that everyone only watched it once, only half a percentage point of the United States' population actually watched it. Sometimes it's good for media types to remind ourselves that our internet circles can turn our content into an echo chamber. (Anna Walsh)
