In the year 2000 ... Alfred Hitchcock wants you to write to him

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 8th 2009 4:26PM
In 1958, Alfred Hitchcock went on his TV show and asked viewers who were watching the show in the year 2000 to write in and let him know how things are going. Not sure if Hitchcock thought he'd be alive 42 years later, but it's an interesting clip (and kudos for Hitchcock for actually assuming that this show would be watched decades later).

Conan O'Brien should have jumped on this for his bit, but now they've gone and changed the name of it.

YEah Hitch, prob is, no one's watching anymore since the only venue that once did run your classic show, TV Land, no only airs Andy Griffith, lame faux award show "specials" and the worst reality shows ever... over and over and over again, ad infinitum.

What up Hitch? It's me that year 2000 guy. Turns out everything is going great, the economy is good, Al Gore's gonna be President and going through security at the airport is a breeze.

Sure, were still working on robot butlers and flying cars, but we went to the moon (no cheese) and now we have telephones we can carry around in our pockets and small breasted women can totally get that fixed.

Jesus (or the deity of your choice) still hasn't come back to save us all, but we haven't been attacked and enslaved by space aliens so it's a push.

Anyway, sorry your dead but as soon as we figure out how to defrost Walt Disney we'll probably work on a zombie Alfred Hitchcock or something cool like that.

Anyway that's the 411... Later - peace out y'all
