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.
Guys we’ve still not started Season 2 so here’s another one of these intermission episodes! We’re talking about DC and why its entire output is terrible except for maybe some Batman! We untangle an impenetrable and poorly crafted timeline plus we discuss our actual progress to releasing new actual episodes of Video Death Loop actually. I know!
Please stay tuned for new episodes of Video Death Loop soon!
Aaron Littleton kind of hosts and John Hurst also kind of co-hosts.
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.
Do you remember, in a time before there were things like laws or ethics, when major corporations would produce half-hour commercials and have the audacity to call it a “television show”? Of course you do, because you were a child in the 80s or 90s and all of your most precious childhood memories are about that kind of garbage. Sure, you don’t remember what your grandfather looked like, but you remember Captain N’s sick Nintendo Zapper®!
Anyway, in a deluded effort to excise ourselves of the lasting effects of being emotionally manipulated at a tender age for dehumanizing capitalistic gains, we watched the Captain N theme song on loop!
