Even if you don't care for the actual song, the music video for Hardcore Anal Hydrogen's track Jean-Pierre is a visual feast, taking advantage of several recent breakthroughs in artificial-intelligent image processing that's quickly gone from creating nightmares, to revolutionising how modern visual effects are created.

Video: By now we've seen everything from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to Donald Trump to popular memes processed by neural networks like Google's Deep Dream. They're like bizarre drug trips, but without the drugs. But it was only recently that someone was curious enough to see what a neural network would make of the human equivalent of Ambien: Painter Bob Ross.
It's been almost two years since Google liquefied our brains with its Deep Dream neural network and the nightmare-inducing images the technology created. But now, a team from the University of California, Berkeley is sort of doing the opposite -- emphasis on "sort of".
Mother of god that's cool-looking. If it weren't for the damn DMCA I'd love to watch the whole movie like this -- Kubrick's expert use of colour be damned. But wait, let's talk for a second about this video's creator, because he's only been uploading Deep Dream videos for a week and he's already made some real gems.
Google's Deep Dream robot can't be stopped. Now the hyper-intelligent nightmare-bot terrorising the internet has taken on a map of Australia, and it's just about the scariest thing I've ever seen.
The first week of July 2015 will forever be known as the week the internet freaked out about a bunch of trippy images generated by a snoozing computer. Please. In my day we didn't need Google to help us see melting dog faces with six eyes that are actually snails with centipedes crawling on their shells. We did it the old-fashioned way.
