Episode 39 – “Me At The Zoo” / Italian Tooth Gem Commercial [Season Finale!]

The first video uploaded to YouTube was on April 23, 2005. You can watch it here. The latest video uploaded to YouTube was whenever you read this sentence, give or take a breath. In Aaron’s case, it was a commercial for an Italian company offering “Tooth Gem” installations on one’s teeth. I tried to find this video so you could understand exactly what we’re dealing with, but instead I found nothing but this:

(“Prayer to the Precious Blood”, coincidentally, is the name of my Slayer cover band that plays exclusively on Sundays.)

Already this “latest” video is lost to humanity… But we tried to save it via this new experimental watching, where watch both the first and latest (at the time) video on loop! The results may save humanity from a fate worse than you think.

EDIT: Aaron here. I found it. Gross.

Also, IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: This is the season finale for the the first part of Video Death Loop! We’re taking a short break to work out some recent logistic changes as well as potentially implement some cybernetic enhancements. We’ll keep everyone posted on the new season and you may even seen little things on the feed in the meantime! Keep posted and we’ll do the same. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s episode with a special full version of the Video Death Loop theme afterwards!

Aaron Littleton hosts this week, giving the people of the present a taste of the future! John Hurst co-hosts, keeping meticulous notes on the Mr. Belvedere Extended Universe.

Episode 38 – Bronson Arroyo Ford Commercial

When you’re a player on any major team, you’re expected to do your fair share of local commercials. It’s a badge of honor, in fact! Being a part of the community– usually through an awkward combination of car commercials and Salsarita meetups– is just how you do things! But only one man has the power to curse in a local commercial and get away with it: Bronson Arroyo, formerly of the Cincinnati Red and currently of the Cincinnati Reds! Come with us to a magical land full of adventure, where commercial directors think that giving a bat to a pitcher is a great idea for their shot and Bronson is totally not reading off of a cue card somewhere in the abyss!

John Hurst hosts this week, taking a break from his multiplayer visual novel games. Aaron Littleton co-hosts, exhausted from having following around Ash Ketchum for many games now.

Episode 37 – The Dukes of Hazzard TV Opening

Short shorts! Car stunts! Problematic themes!

Yes, The Dukes of Hazzard is an interesting show to think about in 2017. TV legends in their own day, and endlessly referenced and parodied in the subsequent four decades, time has recently been less kind to the eponymous duo. Yup, it looks like them Duke Boys are in trouble again, but this time its for slapping a symbol of slavery on the top of an otherwise sick Dodge Charger.

At least moonshine is legal these days.

Aaron Littleton hosts this week, never meaning no harm. John Hurst co-hosts and half finishes construction projects while waiting on additional pylons.
