Help find a specific short video, potentially from Adult Swim?

There was a really funny/disturbing video I remember which satirized happy home DIY videos during an ecological collapse. The host was trying mightily to mask her anxiety with cheer while offering tips about (iirc) re-using filters and making mandatory medicines taste ok, in a way that implied everything outside the house was very, very bad. I would like to watch it again, for obvious reasons. Does anyone here remember it?

Oh that sounds really fun. It also sounds like an episode of "At Home with Amy Sedaris" which contains a lot of crazed/desperate/ridiculous DIY.

Was it Claudia O'Doherty's makeup tutorial videos?

Wasn't Claudia O'Doherty or Amy Sedaris but I really should watch both of those!

IIRC the host had long, straight blond hair and glasses.

Was it definitely a video? I remember a written story in pretend blog form about a home-maker/cooking blogger living through a pandemic - posts gradually shifted to "things to cook using the government rations" and the like.

Ends of Invention: That story was the subject of an AskMe just last week!

Whitney Moore did a series on YouTube called (I think) Thrashtopia for Geek & Sundry which is a sort of mock talkshow set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. It sounds a little like the "5 Tips for Surviving and Thriving in the Apocalypse" episode. (Warning: the ending of this is very, very dark)

Wow, this was a more popular idea than I realized! The aesthetic in this specific video was more like, imagine a web series shot for Good Housekeeping or something. Very not punk, definitely video.
