WARNING: Watching these videos at work may make you look like a fool, laughing and peeing your pants. …. Not that I know that from experience …
The Found Footage Festival is coming to town Saturday, March 22 at Space Gallery and it looks like it will be a riot.
Here’s the deal: Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Colbert Report) pick through thrift stores and dumpsters looking for absurd VHS tapes, which they then curate into a 90-minute show (saving us from watching hour-long “Butt Camp” and instead only giving us ridiculous tidbits).
Joe and Nick will be at Space to show the videos, chat about them and do a “where are they now” update on the actors in the videos. The Space showing will include a 1994 video for dog breeders about a process known as “whelping” and a bizarre instructional video from 1997, “How to Have Cybersex on the Internet.” Needless to say, the event is aimed toward adults.
When you’re in a safe place where no one will side-glance you for laughing so hard you spit up your diet Coke, have a looksie at some of their other gems:
