Achy Breaky 2 is the nadir of popular culture. I would say that western culture alone needs to own this, but when the aliens come with their singular DJ and their death rays, they will not discriminate based on the lines we draw on a map. They will simply process all of digitized culture in a matter of picoseconds, judge us wanting based solely on this video, eradicate us from the universe and move on. We won’t even have time to sit down our giant cans of Arizona tea.
Considering all of this very carefully, host John Hurst decided to watch the Achy Breaky 2 music video on loop. Co-host Aaron Littleton nearly had a melt down. Enjoy the pain.
Everyone, let us remember the simpler times. The times of the 90s. Where the only things we worried about were Dinosaur Movies and knockoffs and sequels, Volcano movies and knockoffs and sequels and Asteroid movies and knockoffs and sequels! We worried about movies a lot guys. They were big! And full of knockoffs! And sequels! But we got a lot more on our plate these days. Let’s only worry about one Asteroid movie: Deep Impact. Find out with us all about Morgan Freeman simultaneously working as our president and his narration career at the same time!
Aaron Littleton hosts this week, filling in for Elijah Wood’s stunt double. John Hurst’s co-hosts, mapping together the deep (impact) continuity of the Morgan Freeman cinematic universe.
By listener request, we’re suffering through a seemingly endless loop of the retro My Buddy commercials. According to John, My Buddy was created to teach young boys empathy, but considering the correlation between the endless parade of flaxen-haired tots in this 80s commercial and the resurgence of actual friggin’ Nazis in our horrible modern times, eehhh, maybe this didn’t work.
John Hurst hosts this week and makes himself a delicious sandwich with mayo. Aaron Littleton cohosts and contemplates silky-smooth skin.
We’re back, everyone! Season 2 gets started off right with the classic DuckTales TV opening. Sure, DuckTales may be in the middle of a reboot, but we’re weird old man who want to think about our own childhoods, damn it! This is retro DuckTales with the wrong coat color Scrooge McDuck and not a hint of Donald anywhere!
Please look forward to Season 2 of Video Death Loop, returning weekly AS OF NOW! Please tell your friends and rate us on iTunes as well, that’d be suuuper swell.
We’re in our new podcast studio location! We’re testing stuff out! We’re sending our interns out to get various things they don’t quite understand, like the contents of a Petro! What’s in a Petro? Find out in this episode! Also, did we mention new podcast office slash studio? Oh snap!
Please stay tuned for new episodes of Video Death Loop very soon!
John Hurst kind of hosts this week while Aaron Littleton also kind of hosts, only orbiting around John.
