The Last Man on Earth watches a whole bunch of crap

May 4th, 2009 by Conor Lastowka · 25 Comments

There were lots of great entries for the Last Man on Earth challenge! Thanks to everyone who mocked Vincent Price’s pain/madness by changing his video to something absurd.  I picked first, second and third place.

First place goes to Askbotboy for his Mighty Boosh mashup:

Second place to Ejiehi for the most insanity inducing clip of them all.  Minus points for the weird video artifacting though

And third to blablover5.  I had never seen Cop Rock again, but it is beyond the realm of comprehension that this ever actually aired on TV:

Great job to everyone else. Send conor AT rifftrax DOT com an email to claim your prize!

    If I was to do one, it would have to be a video of people with this horrific hobby.

    OMG, I can’t believe someone used Cop Rock! That’s hilarious.

    I liked this one best of the three finalists . . that one should have won . . :(

    EELS! Now I won’t be able to get that song out of my head.

  • 6 Askbotboy on May 4, 2009 at 10:20 am

    Vic! Are you still a private eye? Cool name and thanks, Eels is an ear worm that won’t go away!

  • 7 rebisaz on May 4, 2009 at 10:47 am

    Yeah – I mean, all three winners are really great, and congrats askbotboy. But I remember when Cop Rock first came out, thinking, “…the hell? Are they serious?” Now looking back it was a hilariously bad idea. Thanks blablover5.

    Thanks for the vote of um pure painful hilarity. Maybe I should demand some sort of recount.

    Anyone got any old hanging chad jokes I can use?

    Damn it editing software you’ve held me back for too long…

    lol gotta love the hitcher but the crack fox wins hands down for the off the scale WTF factor

    I must admit how oddly funny and jarring it was to see Cop Rock again- especially juxtaposed with Vincent Price! Nice job Blbover5! (I’ll loan you my complimentary copy of whatever RiffTrax I download!) This was a fun contest- there should be more like this!

  • 12 BEMaven on May 4, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    The artifacting in Ejiehi’s entry is a well-documented side effect of using HeadOn (just read the label).

    Congrats to Askbotboy for his steely resolve in watching any part of The Mighty Boosh.

    He’s welcome to my left-over supply of Enzyte (I seem to have developed a tolerance to the drug)

    I wanted to do one with Vincent watching Michael Jackson in ‘Thriller’… but I was thwarted by slow download/upload issues.

    Anyway, the police in ‘Cop Rock’ had more glam going for them.

  • 14 Askbotboy on May 4, 2009 at 1:52 pm

    Please forgive my atrocious spelling Blablover5! Sorry!

  • 15 Scooter on May 4, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    better than what Windows Movie Maker did to me. I had one made tot he best of my ability and the preview looked fine, but when I published it the movie parts featuring Price just turned into a black screen.

  • 16 Lynne on May 4, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    Yeah, the Crack Fox is terrifying and that episode was pretty painful. I love the Boosh most of the time though – it’s kind of disappointing to hear it referred to as a ‘whole bunch of crap’ by RiffTrax. It definitely has the WTF factor though!

    I have been called many things, but blb is by far the worst.

    You have insulted me good Sir! What shall it be? Pistols at dawn?

  • 18 Askbotboy on May 5, 2009 at 6:50 am

    How about Eels at noon! With a nice Teriyaki sauce…..

  • 19 taters on May 5, 2009 at 1:42 pm

    i’m gonna hurt you real bad when we get inside
    what was that?
    nothing! just a funny funny funny sound

    lol

    We are big fans of the Mighty Boosh here. We have also been known to make jokes or exaggerations from time to time.

  • 21 Lynne on May 6, 2009 at 12:33 am

    Good to know! The show isn’t really popular in the U.S., so I thought you guys might not have known about it. It would have been a very interesting entry if that were the case!

  • 22 Emily on May 6, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    AHHHH the joys of the Boosh!
