Hope you enjoy it, muteKi!

Ample, the only thing I found with that name is a Steven Seagal(?!) song? Is there a music video too?

Yes, from Seagal's little-known reggae/dancehall LP "Songs from the Crystal Cave." Irony twitter recently gave it a second life. Or, like, first and a half or so. Sadly there is no official video that I know of.

Like Randy Savage's "Be a Man" it is too powerful for added video. People would die.

it is telling that the Macho Man did not live long beyond his final great achievement.

We've done music videos before and they can be devastating. Perhaps a "fan" has made one?

Once you have reached the peak, where else can you go?

Now I am imagining Macho Man doing a dramatic reading of "Ozymandias".

...

OzyMachoMandias.

I am no longer at a point in my life where I'd cringe and protest at the idea of watching an NSYNC music video, but watching one on repeat isn't really something I would ever choose to do. (Apart from starting a podcast where we do that exact thing, but never you mind that.)

It's Bye Bye Bye this week.

I think it is somewhat telling about my life that when I went to download the OS/2 Warp logo for this episode's news post, I realized that I already had it on my computer. It's a warped world.

Oops, late on posting this here! Anyway, here's S2E10, where we watch the original Chuck Wagon dog food commercial and are wrong about video games but somehow right about Renaissance-era Medici equestrian statues.

As we are once again (and ever shall be) on the cusp of new Star Wars, we take a look at particular marketing eddy of the first new Star Wars for the millennial generation: The Phantom Menace.

Hey guys remember when the Taco Bell dog, Colonel Sanders and a Pizza Hut delivery girl in a belly shirt took on the Battle Droid army on Naboo? You don't? Well I didn't either until I saw this commercial. And I still kind of wish I didn't.

Listen, OK, there's more of this. More Video Death Loop. Remember that Final Fantasy III commercial produced for the US with a sassy claymation stop-motion Mog as a New York casting agent who murders his clients? No? Good. That's for the best. We watched it a LOT

Did you ever go to a Regal Cinemas in the 90s? If so there's a good chance you've seen this week's video yourself - it's Regal's old pre-movie CG roller coaster that was embedded into the heads of movie fans everywhere. We go deep into what it shows us about the metaphysical AND disgusting tales from when I was slinging popcorn at a Regal during my very first job while this video was new.

Listen I don't know if you're into ice cream or whatever but I am and this Carvel commercial only exacerbated things. I'm not sure if this commercial honestly uses hypnotic suggestion but I'm also not 100% that it doesn't.

Carvel! carvel

If any of you are enjoying Video Death Loop, we'd appreciate it if you took our survey. It would really help us identify what people like and respond to about the show. It only takes a minute and we'd be like...super grateful.

Video Death Loop survey!

New ep tomorrow!

Do you ever think you know something, and then when it comes down to talking about it, you just don't know anything at all? That was my exact realization when we started watching the ThunderCats opening. Sure, I know ThunderCats is a thing, but beyond that my mind is a blank on the subject.

That's pretty much where this next episode starts.

3. I saw the compilation you mentioned, and this stuff is practically on the same level as Characters from Yonder Website, which now that I think about it actually details the creation story of cookiepuss

Regarding Cookiepuss, I don't think either John or I have spent a lot of time in areas that have Carvels, so a lot of their line is a mystery to me, including Cookiepuss. I'm honestly not sure how I know about Fudgey the Whale, I don't think I've ever encountered one.

I think the mysteries of Carvel may have to be revisited some day.
