ahah! It's from Chris Cunningham. Now it all makes sense! From Other Music:

"Continuing his psychoanalytic forays in mutant fractals and anatomical perversions, Cunningham's latest is a seven-minute lurid exposé of a shape-shifting, coke-snorting, alien-boy gyrating madly in a wheelchair, entertaining a wild-eyed chihuahua. This is pretty sick rave choreography--a mind-boggling technical feat in hair-trigger-chaotic-editing-mastery, animative experimentations and musical synching. The intro to Aphex Twin's Drukqs kicks in and the composition expands into classic Richard D. James hyperactivity, with basslines so foully elastic that I can't help but parallel the idiomatic referencing of Rubber Johnny to the British condom.

I guess if I were to ever go back to a rave, I'd want it to be in Rubber Johnny's basement. Hanging out with freaks in surreal-scope as seen through Lacan-Lynchian goggles. Through DV and night vision. Maybe stylized to sickening perfection by Helmut Newton without the glitz and glamour. So I like this thing even though it's reeking of a sophistic-cool factor, like a could-be posturing for a promo reel for the next Viceploitation effort. Shrugs... and cheers to Cunningham for keeping it hip AND innovatory. Also, cheers to Warp for supporting the Arts. The DVD features neat packaging with a 40-page booklet containing Cunningham's debut-published artwork."
