SCTV – How to make a funny home video


Really bizarre, but recently I was recycling some of my parents VHS collection and came across a real gem. While I went through hundreds of Mission Impossibles, Lethal Weapons, Men in Blacks, and the odd softcore pornography, I did find a treat from either the 80s or 90s that could be consider rare. It’s called How to Make a Funny Home Video, starring SCTV’s Count Floyd.

The video was only 22 minutes in length and was a comedic look at a couple basic film-making techniques. It’s a very weird mix. It’s not funny enough to watch just for the comedy, and it’s not technical enough to watch for the instructional purpose. It kind of sits right in the middle of half-assed entertainment. But man, it brings back some nostalgia.

    Hi. *I bought that when it was released in the early 1990’s for about $10.00 or so….yes,it’s probably RARE & most likely NEVER will be released on dvd. :(. *I got Joe Flaherty-Count Floyd himself to sign it at a NYC dvd signing in 2004 when SCTV was released on dvd….scaty stuff, kids!
