  1. Santo gold

    I heard about this years ago and just remembered it. From the link below:

    "Santo Gold is without a doubt the most bizarre infomercial I’ve seen. This infomercial tries to do two very different tasks at the same time: sell a gold jewelry business opportunity and promote a “science-fiction space wrestling movie” called Blood Circus. Either one of these would be laughable enough on its own, but the combination of the two is downright unnerving."

    • Goldilocks and the three bears in 3d

      I had this nightmare of a children's movie as a kid. It is definitely a trip. I think it, along with your guy's humor, would make a great Rifftrax short. Please consider.

      • Shopping Can Be Fun (1957)

        Bridget and Mary Jo have done riffs on menstruation, the suburbs, and Tupperware, so they would be perfect to riff this early tribute to the shopping mall.

        It's also in the public domain.

        And it can be found here:

        • Any old 80s fast-food training video you can get the rights to

          There's a lot of great cheesy 80s fast-food training videos out there, like for Wendy's and McDonald's. It's a riff goldmine.

          • Not without my handbag

            It’s a very creepy claymation short (little over 10 mins) about a lady who dies but comes back as a zombie to get her purse. It features the devil, the dead lady, and her very young niece who now lives alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIvQZm8K-yU

            • Paddle To The Sea

              28 minute short I had to watch in elementary school.
              A boy carves a canoe out of wood and sends it on it's greatly improbable way to the ocean.
              Along the way, the canoe meets people and has adventures.
              The canoe does.
              Yes.
              Really

              • Trucks

                Trucks, a movie from 1997, it’s maximum overdrive’s basement dwelling stepchild. Even the radio controlled tonka trucks murders the mailman to get out of this movie. No real big name actors, but when a fire breaks out, every actor in the movie looks at the smoke and ask, what the **** is that? There’s even an inflatable axe wielding killer. How can you go wrong with redneck hating trucks? The TV seems to only come on when the reporter reminds everyone that there is no electricity and then fades back out to static.
                1. Trucks that don’t really seem to…

                  • Instant French

                    In keeping with the wackiness of shorts like Phoebe, this gives us a look at the strangeness of 1960s Canada culture. Bilingualism, mistresses, corporate intrigue, black & white film, plus an animated logo to take on Coronet and ACI. What could go wrong?

                    20+ minutes of pure madness to start your day right in our topsy turvy world today.

                    • Flannel Boards And How To Use Them

                      It may be only half the length of Setting Up A Room, but it has twice the tedium! I remember flannel boards from Sunday School, but this takes them to a whole new level!

                      • hazards

                        Hidden Hazards in Your Home - Narrated by William Shatner - I have a VHS tape dying to be riffed. It is a household safety video narrated by none other than the Man himself. I cannot view it because we don't have a tape player anymore, but I am more than willing to mail it to you for your use! Please let me know if interested! :)

                          Videos sold at the parks back in the early 90s that followed various families around. Presents lots of prime riffing fodder both from an early 90s kitch and promotional Disney standpoint.

                            • Operation Blue Line starring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

                              A 10-minute promotional VHS given out at supermarkets and the like. The Turtles shill with honor as they cross the country to LA in order to promote the LA Metro Blue Line, a rail system running from LA to Long Beach. In order to accomplish their goal, they must overcome the sinister Gridlock, a malefactor who wants to keep LA congested with traffic and smog.

                              Reasons this deserves a riffing:

                              -The Turtle costumes are pretty cheap-looking. They just look like giant versions of the original TMNT action figures and have no jaw articulation whatsoever. They make up for it by…

                                A terrible educational folksy short on steam engines. I mean truly terrible, it starts with the narrator insulting the lead's wife and talking about how normal him loving an engine is. This has Kevin Murphy written all over it

                                    • Metrics for Primary: How Big is Big?

                                      This educational short teaches kids about metric measurements in liters and volume; which sounds like a nice idea, if not for the fact that this short contains puppets that would make Jim Henson shake his head in disgust (or scream in horror).

                                      Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70k9gBICVQU and skip to 32:11.

                                      • BALLAD OF THE BIG ONES (1969) - Truck Song, but about the ********* Clydesdales

                                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab7rvuiIwi0

                                        This short has three sections that literally sing the praises of the Clydesdales that pull the beer carts and two sections where a narrator talks over film of horses walking around.

                                        The song is performed so forcefully and passionately you'd think they were singing about eight wild west folk heroes from Scottland.

                                        The "BALLAD OF THE BIG ONES" is now available as a 33 1/3.
