“I Sell Computers” by Canadian comedy troupe The Frantics. The group is said to have influenced Kids in the Hall. This video obviously draws inspiration from Devo.
Not that I don’t think anyone could have won Saturday nights drunken youtube free for all at the NYUFF’s Tube Time, but it does seem clear that “anyone” wouldn’t have included me. I have no instincts for estimating the taste of aggressive crowds, which is to say, I managed to make it to the 2nd round despite three or four needless recheers and the fact that Edith Zimmerman of the L Magazine proclaimed the above video boring, but was eliminated shortly thereafter when this breast examination video failed to please anyone. I thought it was hilarious?
I’m officially a bad blogger as I have no idea who won (help me out). I can however report that Ben Coonley is responsible for the best NYUFF Tube Time promo yet. That video below.
