I love this. I first saw this short three or four years ago, and now it's on DVD. :) It's so reminiscent of David Lynch's Eraserhead. It's made by Chris Cunningham who's done a couple of Björk videos. I want this on my big screen now! Why doesn't Netflix have it?

From Youtube's page:

Rubber Johnny is a 6 minute experimental short film and music video directed by Chris Cunningham in 2005, using music composed by Aphex Twin.

The concept for Rubber Johnny came from Cunningham imagining a raver morphing as he danced. The idea evolved to the present film, in which Johnny (played by Cunningham) is an isolated mutant child with a huge overgrown cranium, strapped into a wheelchair and locked in a basement. Capable of morphing his body, he spends his life trying to amuse himself and his dog, a terrified chihuahua.
