Since those fellas from the Found Footage Festival have travelled all the way from the US especially for SUFF, we thought we better treat you to a special edition of the Found Footage Festival. Joe Pickett (The Onion) and Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) will present their all-time favourite VHS finds from thrift stores across America. Highlights include: Outtakes from an ill-fated Winnebago industrial video featuring Jack Rebney, the world's angriest RV salesman, a montage of unwittingly hysterical exercise videos, starring Angela Lansbury, adult film star Traci Lords, and a bearded hippie named Zar, a high-concept video from 1987 called “Rent-A-Friend,” aimed at lonely people with VCRs and highlights from Pickett and Prueher’s appearances on local morning news shows as a fake yo-yo expert, fake celebrity chef and fake strongman duo, Chop & Steele. Catch them while you can, it’s going to be a riot!
