If you want to check out Adult Swim's newest show well before its cable premiere, there's only one place to do so: Vine. The oddball comedy network has posted the premiere of Brad Neely's Harg Nallin Sclopio Peepio in full there, though it doesn't have much in common with the service's trademark short loops. There's an initial six-second clip that loops if you do nothing, but clicking on it pops out a full-screen player that offers up the full episode, which stretches to almost 10 minutes in length. (If you check it out through the embedded tweet below, you'll need to click through to get the full functionality.) And while Vine's recently grown to accommodate video attachments up to 140 seconds, it seems like Adult Swim is pushing that new feature as far as it can go. The show's premiere is going to live exclusively on Vine until its traditional premiere on July 10th.
So what exactly does "harg nallin sclopio peepio" mean? According to Neely — whose earlier show China, IL enjoyed a three-season run on Adult Swim from 2011 to 2015 — it's "intentionally meaningless... it was our favorite collection of syllables." (At one point in development, the show was called TV Sucks.) Once you get past the title, you'll find an animated sketch comedy with a stacked cast, an emphasis on music, and a tendency to flit between bite-sized bits at warp speed. It might be an acquired taste, but now you can give it a test run on Vine before committing to a late-night premiere next month.
