Everyday I turn on TV at 7pm

The living room is the place where we usually watch TV. The furniture is placed around to enable the ideal way of TV watching. Among TV programs the evening news gets the highest ratings.

The video looks as if one would turn on a local TV channel a few minutes before 7 pm and maybe zapp a little. But a closer look reveals a certain link in content between each segment.

The basic meaning of some of the segments is altered (the original sound of a shampoo commercial is combined with different imagery …). The news is not as one would expect either. The hosts are either both silent or both talking simultaneously. The reports are short and strange.
