Adult Swim launches ThingX

Posted on October 17, 2012 at 11:32 am by Justin Cavender

Adult Swim launched a new digital comedy website today called ThingX. The site is led by former Onion editor Joe Randazzo, which is exciting news for comedy fans. ThingX takes on a satirical approach to everything on the Internet through videos, columns, interviews, reviews, e-mails, and podcasts. They explore how internet users just point and click their way through life without hesitation to get the information they need.

“We are thrilled to be working with some of the best comedy writers in the country,” said vice president of Adult Swim Digital and Games, Jeff Olsen. “It’s an amazing talent pool and a perfect fit for our digital business.”

About Us

The Internet just isn’t what it used to be. Some of us still remember a smaller, more approachable web that could fit in the tiny shoe of a human infant. Needless to say, times have changed. The Internet has grown into a data pool far too vast for anyone to process without a psychotic break that ends in bloody, incomprehensible mayhem.

How do we make sense of the web? How do we use it to get the information we want? How can it take us to the places we want/need to smell? Thing X, Inc.knows.

Our company was founded on a single essential question: What inspires people to click without doubt or hesitation, without pause, ignoring bodily fatigue for days and weeks, always clicking, clicking, clicking? For more than a century, our researchers have been screaming that question at the mirror and have, over time, developed the proprietary technology that answers it. In short, Thing X, Inc. is the Internet you want and need – and nothing else. It’s the Internet that unrelentingly stimulates the pleasure center of your flesh brain and, well, just feels like home.

So why not look around? Heck, maybe even stick around and offer up your free will? You just might be glad you did!

At ThingX, there are plenty of funny videos and articles to help satisfy your point and click needs. Be sure to check it out when you get a chance. Perhaps the next time a website wants you to jump through hoops just to read an article, you might just say “F-you,” and close it.
