Movie Night, Anyone? Gidget Bites the Dust

Ann Magnuson, Made For TV, 1981:





It kills me how funny these videos are, and how relevant a portrait of mass media they continue to be, 29 years on.

This one goes out to Jennifer Reader and the crew of Time Based Media, UIC, 2000, the course that kept me from losing my mind during the fall of 2000.

Nick--
Check out her wikipedia page. Very interesting. Turns out she made this in 1981--even more impressive!

Greg, thanks for the heads up. Perhaps it ran on PBS in '84? I could swear I saw that year somewhere. But pretty excellent, nonetheless. It reminds me of our youth.

Thanks for commenting on Nick Haus! I look forward to seeing what you have to say. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking Anonymous comments -- too much spam, too much vituperative. Come out from behind the curtain, ye nasty Anonymous! Everyone else, please, I love to hear from you.
