"It's Too Big, It Won't Fit" is a promotional video created for the CD release of the album HANGNAIL by Snakeskin. It is an intentionally goodbad video featuring a combination of frenetic editing, haphazard special effects, and a lot of humor. It begins with Snake, from Snakeskin, in the bathtub, announcing that, after having heard the complaints that her LP is "too big" she has a solution: the CD-ROM, which "fits" anywhere. "Anywhere" includes a dog's head, a finger, a mailbox, etc.

All animation and editing and filming by William Bottini. Additional illustration by Snake.
Examples of the animation in the video. Hand-drawn text was originally created by Snake herself before being converted into 3-D.
