MiSTy Moments: Poopie Parade of Values!

In an effort to NOT bore all of you readers to tears, I’m going to be writing up occasional features chronicling various aspects of MST3K. This is one of them. In “Revisiting MST3K” “MiSTy Moments,” I dig up some ancient MST3K artifact that some of you may not have seen before, usually of the audio/video variety, and submit it for your approval, all Rod Serling-style.

This time? The Poopie Parade of Values special. I guess most of you are familiar with the first Poopie! blooper reel, and some of you remember the Scrapbook tape, but back in 1995 when they were first released, Comedy Central aired an infomercial of sorts to promote the two tapes. Sound boring? You are wrong, Doubty McDoubterface! The Brains worked their magic and turned it into a spot-on parody of infomercials, perfectly imitating the style of the hosts, from the disingenuous banter, to the matching sweaters, to their marvelling over the VHS format. Perfectly executed. As YouTube commenter vlcupper notes, it’s like their sweaters are mocking us. Gloriously mocking us, I might add.

For some Godless reason, embedding has been disabled for the video, so you’ll have to watch them on their native YouTube pages. The uploader was kind enough to re-enable embedding, so you can hit the jump for the two videos, or you can watch Part 1 and Part 2 on YouTube. (You’ll also find them in our video archive.) Be sure to catch part two around the four-minute mark, when Trace arrives wielding a brilliant Australian accent. Watch it, NOW NOW NOW NOW.
