Bo Burnham’s new hour-long video goes behind Inside (and has new songs)

While we were (not) outside grass, Bo Burnham put together for a whole hour of outtakes and clipped content from his 2021… movie / musical / comedy special / existential crisis, Inside† While a majority of The Inside Outtakes is exactly what it says on the tin (flubs, various takes and behind-the-scenes clips of the original), there are also some new songs – within the first minute we hear a new piece of music about Jeffery Bezos, leading to an absolute earwig of a new song that musically sounds like a downtempo version of “Problematic” and revisits the themes of depression and stuck inside for days in a row. In other words, it hits me just as much as the original, which isn’t a great sign, but what can you do?

While the original special is on Netflix, the outtakes are available for free on YouTube. According to the video description, they were filmed from March 2020 to May 2021 and edited over the past two months. (However, some content is quite easy to place in time – like one of the new songs with the text “they’re really going to let me vote for Joe Biden?”)

Burnham also says he has a deluxe version of the… Inside album “soon”, which will hopefully contain the new songs. I still listen to the original version of the album relatively often (along with that one cover of Phoebe Bridgers), but who will say no to a questionable romantic ballad or undeniably catchy songs about a hen stuck in an unhappy marriage or living in the future?

You can view the outtakes here† And if you haven’t seen it yet the originallet me be the last in what is probably a long line of people annoyingly insisting that you absolutely should check it out and tell you for the millionth time that it is extremely good and recognizable. No, I’m not going to think about what this says about me.
