This is a really amazing piece that was a slap in the face to observational documentarians who felt they had realized Vertov's vision of a wholly ontologically valid way of presenting "reality" and "real objects." Block's excruciating practical joke showed that the style and look of observational documentary could indeed be manufactured, and as such could come with an agenda attached.
