TV Series: Episode 13

We watch the “The Forgotten,” the thirteenth (and cursed) episode of the Animorphs TV show with friend of the show Jarred McClure! This is the one where Rachel gets lost in the woods after getting amnesia and meets that crazy ex-Controller as well as a handsome boy who tries to put a slug in her ear.

Listener warning: we talk about crackers a weird amount in this one.

Snickers Presents: Bite Size Horror

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f2b5J7_1mo

Quinn and Mikael follow up this year’s Halloween with a visceral ad from Snickers called “Bite Size Horror.” Twist: there’s no Snickers in this ad. Second twist: maybe this ad is actually great. We learn a lot about how the ad boys feel about horror films, candy, and the importance of showing your product in your ad.

32 – The Stuff (1985)

Halloween is here & you need something to watch: you need The Stuff (1985).

In a world consumed by consumption, a malicious food product is taking over & our heroes have to save the day! We try to figure out how these characters got to where they were; we discuss all the different ways the filmmakers made the Stuff; we try and get to the heart of this spectacular cult classic.

If you’d like to know more about the film, check out this Ryan Lambie article!

Help Tom Brady Bring Good Back This Halloween

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JrmTPlVb-E

Join the ad boys once again as they deconstruct and reconstruct the Unreal Candy ad “Help Tom Brady Bring Good Back to Halloween.” Yes, the ad is as dumb as it sounds. Get ready for spooky skeleton keys, nonsensical sci-fi pleas, and just an incredibly low bar.
