On How I Met Your Mother, main character Ted Mosby Architect is competing against “Swedish architecture collective” Sven for a Manhattan high rise commission. In a perfect parody of hipper-than-thou über architects, the three architects named Sven made their pitch like we imagine every European architect must — by shouting and gesturing aggressively over a custom techno soundtrack (you better be taking notes Herzog). Their proposal? A building shaped like a T-Rex pierced by a lighting bolt that breaths fire (seriously… somebody better be taking notes). And yes, there is a video after the jump.
