OK, here's a pretty deep cut that I'm hoping someone can help me out with, because this show brought it into my head and I have no idea how I would go about finding it with Google or whatever - There was a song that sampled that Arthur Brown song, most prominently the "I BRING YOU". I'd guess it was from the early to mid '90s, but it could be older. I'd call the genre hard rock/industrial, like Ministry or KMFDM. Anybody?
EDIT - I figured it out, maybe not as obscure as I was thinking. "Lunchbox" by Marylin Manson, from 1995.

It's entirely improvised? By children? The opening titles lists everybodys ages? The children are playing adults? What?
You've thrown me down a rabbit hole, Fogelnest.

Buddy, if you don't think Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come isn't next on my list, you underestimate my commitment to discussing the silliness of prog rock.
P.S. There's Zappa talk coming too!

You wouldn't happen to be a puppet named Vance, would you?

Also, I may love Devo, but I've never been able to get together with another Devo fan and lip-sync to "Whip It" while shirtless inside a factory.

It's from a show that's (translated) called "Born Great" and it's was a general singing competition type show where they got split into teams and had celebrity mentors like x factor and whatever...
But everyone was wondering about the text on the screen, and all Korean variety/reality shows have excessive amounts of text on the screen. Sometimes it's expositional explanations, sometimes it's just a textual representation of something someone just said for emphasis, or if someone does something embarrassing for example they might put "embarrassed" in big text on both sides of their face. Sometimes it's annoying and sometimes it's delightful. Also, they do this thing where if anything exciting or funny happens they will replay it 5 or 6 times from every angle available and sometimes extra slow the way people sometimes edit youtube videos. It's bonkers. I love it so much.
Anyway... I just felt like retroactively answering questions just in case anyone wanted to know.
