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 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

In 2009, a promotional DVD was released by They Might Be Giant's management team, The Hornblow Group. The DVD was titled They Might Be Giants: Installing & Servicing Melody. The DVD contained many of They Might Be Giant's compositions for venues, children, television shows, and commercials 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, it was later uploaded by the YouTube channel They Might Be Memes.

Rare/Lost Material

Much of the material on the DVD is already online; however, not in the best quality. Only one of the contents from the DVD has been ripped in high quality, that being Cartoon Network's "Dee Dee & Dexter" video.

However, their composition for the Sony Cameras commercials seems to be lost and only on that DVD.
