Funny Family Feud clip: Dawson loses it

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 20th 2006 10:04AM
richard dawsonHere's a bit of levity for your Sunday. This clip is from an old episode of The Family Feud from back in the good ol' days when Richard Dawson was host, and, if you were lucky enough to a contestant, he'd make out with both your wife and daughter right in front of you. I don't think there's ever been a game show host as amorous as Dawson, though if memory serves Chuck Woolery used to do that "tongue between two fingers" gesture to close every episode of Scrabble. The Family Feud clip features a woman whose mouth gets ahead of her brain during the "Fast Money" round, and Dawson is unable to keep his composure. Funny stuff.

Classic clip of Chevy Chase's fabled talk show

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 21st 2006 3:01PM

chevy chaseI didn't see a single moment of Chevy Chase's short-lived talk show when it aired, probably because my attention was diverted to the shake ups at more established late night fare such as The Tonight Show and Late Night. Chase's show came along the same time Conan O'Brien was slipping into Letterman's slot on NBC, and as we all know, The Chevy Chase Show never quite gained an audience. I think after you watch a clip (after the jump) of Chase interviewing actress Goldie Hawn, you'll begin to understand why. This four minutes of "interview," awkward dancing, and a gag involving a birthday cake that falls flat in more ways than one culminate into one glaring fact: it takes a special kind of person to helm a late night talk show, and Chevy Chase wasn't it. A shame really, because in the right circumstances the man can be quite funny. Watch if you dare.

Thanks to Josh for hepping us to the clip.

YouTube sued for copyright infringement

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 20th 2006 9:31AM
YouTube logoYouTube has kind of a weird policy when it comes to copyrights. Essentially, they will leave a clip up on their site until the copyright holder contacts them and tells them to take it down. I guess it's easier to do it that way than to police the thousands of clips that get uploaded to the site every day. But that does leave it open to infringement lawsuits.

So, the fact that no one's sued them until now is equally strange. Robert Tur, a freelance news reporter, is the first to do it, suing the site for putting up his report on the 1992 L.A. riots without his permission. Now, the folks at YouTube took the clip down after he requested it, but Tur decided to sue anyway. This ought to be an interesting case; even though the site cooperated with his request, was it still up long enough to infringe upon his copyright? The site says the case is "without merit", but I'm not so sure about that. What do you folks think?

Henry Rollins writes letter to Ann Coulter

henry rollinsWell, he didn't really write a letter Ann Coulter, but he does in this funny clip. Fair warning, the clip contains some bad language, and is probably NSFW, unless you have headphones on. It's pretty amusing, though I'll be the first to say that these two have at least one thing in common, which is that I don't really care about either of their political beliefs. Nevertheless, Rollins' "love letter" did have me cracking up at least a couple times, especially the part about memorizing every line of Caddyshack. I also think that should be required of all my romantic conquests. It seems like a perfectly legitimate request.

Simpsons opening sequence done with live actors

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 4th 2006 4:02PM
simpsons live actionEliot over at Hackaday found this super cool clip on YouTube. It's the opening sequence of The Simpsons, but done entirely in live action. Before I clicked over to it I wondered, 'how in the world are they going to pull that off?' Actually, they pull it off quite well, using some awesome editing techniques to maintain the frantic pace of the animated sequence. Also, notice the keen attention to detail, such as the real-life versions of the twins Sherri and Terri in the bandroom sequence.
