  1. Zone Out

    The first film ever written by an AI, starring Thomas Middleditch, is a story about... Well I have no idea because it makes as much sense as a script would make sense when you try to make a 25th century SkyNet out of 21st century parts!

    For two guys who played robots and one who got constantly ribbed by them, I can think of no greater honor to the first AI-made script than a ribbing by Mike, Bill, and Kevin. Besides, it can't be worse than a Wiseau script!

    ...right?

    • Captain Z-RO

      Found this cheesy sci-fi serial which is apparently public domain, the announcer is apparently desperate to remind us of the lead character’s name. Clunky looking robot in this episode called imaginatively Roger (could have been Robert I suppose!) and Z-ro is able to conduct experiments in time and space.

      It’s like a 50s Retro Doctor Who without the Tardis or the quality of the writing.

      • YELLOW BELLIED SUMP SUCKER

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX59CjRi0wk

        It was made during the golden years of instructional videos. Earthy aromas permeate throughout with a slight aftertaste of Shake Hands With Danger. It's for a niche industry that is so impossibly dull that it just can't not be funny. The riffs practically write themselves.

        • Magic Gift of the Snowman (Video 1995)

          How does former whistleblower, Edward Snowden become a Frosty the Snowman ripoff? Or is it ripping off the David Bowie narrated short, The Snowman?

            • Potato Cultivation and Distribution (1940s): "And now the destiny of the potato is fulfilled"

              https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsP26MxPX2c

              The first 28 minutes are devoted to the growth and bagging of potatoes, the last two minutes go over how bags of potatoes are loaded and unloaded from a boxcar so the potatoes can be sold at grocery stores. Coincidentally, this short was made by Union Pacific Railroads.

              • With This Ring (1954): There's a bit of god in every Miller High Life?

                https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3bblcaYtQo

                This short is part-advertisement for Miller High Life, part historic-melodrama cut down for time.

                The ring in question is some sort of magic ring that seems to give the Miller family a +5 in INT, WIS, and brewing. It only appears at the start and end.

                The movie itself is mostly made up of dramatic speeches or set-ups for dramatic speeches. Like Fred Miller threatening a guy with a hammer. Fred Miller's daughter explaining that she'll keep running the company until a man can take over. Or Fred III saying God is present in the fermenting process.

                There are…

                • Z is for Zoo

                  Here is a vintage educational short from 1970, produced by our good friends at ACI. Though this short taking place at some zoo was made to teach young viewers to read, it starts with some rather bizarre and unsettling visuals that always made me feel weirded out, ever since I saw this short as a small child on a "Know-It-Owl" VHS tape.

                  To view the short, go to this link -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye1nS_sdQb8 -- and skip to 15:32.

                  • "We'll Take the High Road" aka Bulldozing Grandma's House for Progress

                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTPgbePibWg

                    This 31 minute short is part skit about Grandma not wanting her house torn down, part playlet about a guy telling a town why the highway is good, and part stock fotage of cars and highways.

                    • This is Ceder Crest (1954): It's a 25 minute tour of a woman's college

                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6EJAgFuw74

                      I'm on the fence about suggesting this because it feels like a slog, but maybe that'd make for a solid two-parter riff?

                      The short itself is a 25-minute promo for a woman's college in 1954 with each scene not lasting for much more than 30 seconds. The only person who talks other than the narrator is the college's president.

                      • "High Cost of Letting Go" (Short) AKA Don't Drive Angry

                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVsRYsNETpY

                        A Union Pacific traffic education short.

                        A reporter solved the mystery of why a brother and sister died in a fatal accident. But before he'd tell the audience or his boss the reporter detailed every step he took to figure out what happened.

                        A series of interviews revealed that the family had emotions. Emotions caused the dad to get a ticket, the girl to get her bike run over, and the brother to speed past a red light and into a deadly railroad yard.

                        • Fort Moultrie

                          I watched this video while visiting Fort Moultrie in South Carolina on vacation. Only two people in the video, the narrator and the 'Sargent' who plays all of the different parts. Seems very Riffable to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZnY1cbW89U

                          • What's The Big Hurry (1974)

                            This is a crazy short. It shows cars getting demolished at a junkyard. But the audio alternates between people's last words behind the wheel, Christmas music, and creepy electronic music.

                              This is so meta that you must riff this. It features long pauses, giant props, and boats almost crashing into each other.

                                Could possibly be one of the worst movies with an A cast, challenging even Prisoners of the Lost Universe.

                                Future World is complete trash starring James Franco, Suki Waterhouse, Lucy Liu, Milla Jovovich, Method Man, Snoop Dog and more!

                                  If you've all seen this classic short of MST3K ep 520, you know this unintentionally funny overdramatic driver's ed film is worthy of a Rifftrax re-riff (right down to the cop's cheesy 'angry' narrations-"SAVE THAT FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, BROTHER!")

                                      A rambling judge/narrator starts off talking about a teen running away to get married. Then he talks about keys in a ball of wax, teens making out in a car getting mugged by a man in a suit, a babysitter having to work late and being murdered. In short, everyone is always schemeing to steal from or to murder teenagers.

                                      A Sid Davis production.
