They Might Be Giants is an alternative rock band that debuted in 1982. The band was formed by John Flansburgh and John Linnell, who originally performed as a sole duo before the inclusion of current members Dan Miller, Danny Weinkauf, and Marty Beller. The band, over the years, has done music for children, adults, and television and found success in doing so.

The DVD[edit | edit source]

In 2009, a promotional DVD was released by They Might Be Giant's management team, The Hornblow Group. The DVD was titled Installing & Servicing Melody. The industry-intended DVD contained many of They Might Be Giant's compositions for commercials, television shows, venues, and children with the accompanying video. The DVD seemed to have had a limited release, and few collectors seem to own it.

In April 2020, a user from the Misc T Facebook group ripped the DVD from their collection and uploaded the first 18 minutes to the YouTube channel They Might Be Memes. In March 2021, the YouTube channel TitanicFog ripped the DVD from his collection and uploaded 45 of the 54 minutes of the DVD, only missing six children's music videos due to copyright claims.
