As most of you are aware, the cast and crew of MST3K weren’t always sipping champagne from golden chalices and resting their feet on the backs of Comedy Central underlings. No, there was a time when the Brains were just regular shmucks living in Minnesota (as if any other sort of person ever lived in Minnesota, ZING!) trying to make a living on some dumpy little local TV station. And sometimes, well, working for The Man at a little Midwestern TV station had its downsides.
Thus, at some point, Trace Beaulieu and Josh Weinstein did this short advertisement for Pizza N Pasta, a local, uh, pizza and pasta chain. And it’s worth noting that they did the ad in-character, as a mustacheless Dr. Forrester and an understated Dr. Erhardt. Of course, I don’t know the circumstances surrounding this commercial. For all I know, they could’ve been friends with the local Pizza N Pastafarians and did this as a favor. Either way, we’re left with this little gem from simpler times.
And remember: Yummy noise. Yes… yummy noise.
