    • Video: Found Footage: The crucial art of ham carving
      Nick and Joe prove once again that there's pretty much a video for everything. This one features a man whose sole skill in life is carving ham, and he wants to share that knowledge with the world. Do you know the difference between a country ham and a city ham? You're about to find out. Happy holidays! (Early or late, you decide.)moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: We will never forget: Jingle Cats
      Perhaps you thought Jingle Cats had been excised from your memory completely, but the Found Footage Show is here to remind you that, yes, in the early '90s, this did exist, and was actually sort of omnipresent for about five minutes. Did your mom buy one of the two million copies sold? I bet she did. Oh, and big ups to Joe and Nick for those Christmas sweaters.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: Christian clowns confound old people
      Yesterday, it was a wooden dummy trying to spread His word. Today, clowns. Who thought it was a solid idea to dress in crazy circus outfits and visit nursing homes? Sound like a serious health hazard to frail seniors who perhaps don't want to be touched. Take special note, though: If you are a Christian clown, do not travel in packs of more than three.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: Look, a Christian dummy!
      Throughout history, the word of God has been spread in many ways, but perhaps none has been as effective as the omnipresent ventriloquist dummy. Looking for lame jokes and a puppetmaster who makes no effort to keep his mouth shut? Look no further, then ask yourself: What kind of a god would allow this to happen? It's part of Religion Awareness Week. Tomorrow: Christian clowns.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: You've never seen a movie if you've never seen Computer Beach Party
      There are bad movies, and then there are transcendent-bad movies. You know what we're talking about, fans of . Computer Beach Party, from 1987, doesn't even have the excuse of a questionably foreign egomaniac at its helm, but it succeeds at being possibly the worst thing ever. Check out Joe and Nick's trailer, plus a little bonus clip, and you'll be rushing to the used-VHS bin to find a copy of your own.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: Fear The Forest: bad acting or worst acting ever?
      For Movie Awareness Week, Joe and Nick dredged the same muddy waters that we often do in our Films That Time Forgot feature. But man, they've found a movie called Fear Forest--or is it Fear The Forest?--that features some of the worst acting ever to hit cheap videotape. It appears to be a movie about Sasquatch, but it's hard to tell. And who'd want to watch the whole thing to find out? Actually, that sounds like a fun challenge.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: Heavy Metal Picnic!
      If you've never seen Heavy Metal Parking Lot, you might want to drop whatever you're up to and check it out. One of the documentary's directors, Jeff Krulik, used to work at a public-access station, and he gave Joe and Nick access to some of his weirdest videos. Here, a sorta-companion to Heavy Metal Parking Lot, called Heavy Metal Picnic. Awesome.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: The best of Jeff "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" Krulik's personal stash
      If you've never seen Heavy Metal Parking Lot, you might want to drop whatever you're up to and check it out. One of the documentary's directors, Jeff Krulik, used to work at a public-access station, and he gave Joe and Nick access to some of his weirdest videos. Here, they give you just a taste. Madonna, she's a dick.moreless
    • Video: Found Footage: A half-naked masked man dances for old people
      Dancing With Frank is apparently a half-hour show in which Frank, naked save for a mask and a banana hammock, dances around suggestively in a semi-circle of elderly people. Oh, the questions it raises: What does Frank get out of this? Who are these old people, and how did they get here? Where is Frank now? Why the mask, if he's using his full name anyway? Enjoy.moreless
