    I don’t judge. God knows how the things we think are clever and cute will play in forty  years.

    Andy Sandberg’s father at 1:14???

    The concept is vaguely reminiscent of some Australian Aboriginal dances, in which the goal is to mimic the actions and mannerisms of a native animal.

    I’m just glad we as a species have evolved past making videos with gratuitous cat placement and bad dancing.

    I think this was put on by Corki from Waiting for Guffman.

    The YouTube info indicates it is from the Spanish TV series ¡Señoras y señores! (1973–1976).

    What young people today may not realize is that back in those days there were very few TV channels and they had a captive audience so they often filled them with crap.

       And now we have limitless channels so we have to fill them with crap.

      • MonkeyBoy says:

         but now people have the illusion of choice – of what of 100 flavors of crap to view. Back then the choice was more between watching TV and not watching it.

    • BarBarSeven says:

      More like, “They will watch anything we throw at them, so let’s put this on.” I don’t consider that mentality sucks since classic broadcast TV really was far more creative than modern, market-researched to death TV.

      Shows like this were more “reality” based than 99% of “reality” TV that exists nowadays.

    Ah, both in hi-quality pop culture and in… well, stuff like this, the Boomers are a tough act to follow.  Surely Generation X has done something by now that’s as risibly awful.  But what?  I can’t think off the top of my head.

    Yo Gabba Gabba, maybe?

    I’m glad I got high in eighties and nineties instead of the seventies.

    Those kittens are now dead.

    You mock, but this was the inspiration for the second longest-running broadway show ever…

    But it was a good idea!

    Anyway, if you don’t like it too much, blame the Internet. This is a perfect example of retroactive causality: this is what the Internet looks like when reflected backwards in time 40 years.

  11. @ 1:59  Why are they doing football drills?

    Twenty bucks says that the blond guy was the choreographer.

  13. Jay Converse says:

    Nice fro, bro.

  14. Aaron Cole says:

    This is to Neflix streaming as Cats is to their DVD in the mail option.

  15. John Poetzel says:

    I’m smack dab in the middle of 2012 and I think it’s a good idea!

  16. Frank Diekman says:

    That was leotarded.

    And immediately my thoughts go to George Galloway, MP for Bradford and former Celebrity Big Brother housemate. He seemed to deconstruct this video pretty well:

    These people were just taking a break from their full-time job as extras on Space: 1999.

    This nadir in popular entertainment was recently discussed over at the ever-festive Redundant Variety Hour, which specializes in such treasureable atrocities:

    I recognized two of the cat pictures.  They were used as Trapper Keeper covers sometime around 1980.  I had the two white kittens w/blue background. 

  21. ChickieD says:

    Kittehs!

  22. Is there supposed to be sound? Because it’s really creepy without the sound.

  23. destroy evil.com says:

    a different kind of FREE PUSSY RIOT
