Hot Tub Time with Pink Lady...

I must warn you. Should you choose to watch this video, it will blow your mind. Into a billion pieces. And there's no guarantee any amount of psychotherapeutic rehabilitation will restore your reasoning capacity to full function. As you journey deeper into it, your surroundings will become increasingly surreal, and you'll lose the reality you once knew and believed in so fervently, lost in a fog of the increasingly bizarre until like some dark secret the weirdness enters you and lives there in the shattered palace of your mind, a ruined king on a broken throne.

And yet I do recommend you watch it.

And kids today think SCTV was a satire. I hope they'll understand now it was a documentary! Television was really like that!

But how can I ever look Mark Evanier in the eye again?

But you're still okay with Jeff Altman, right?

RAB said...

Absolutely. Jeff Altman's many contributions to preserving the legacy of Jack Kirby are well known.

Um, wait, I got confused there for a moment. No, actually, I've got nothing against Altman. Unfortunately, his work on this show reminds me oddly of Bob Hope.

It does have a Bob Hope-ish quality!
