Fans of liquid potato salad, do NOT watch this!

August 7th, 2009 by Bill Corbett · 42 Comments

But for everyone else….

Know that during our 8/20 Rifftrax Live show, Kevin, Mike and I will perform contortions that put these woman to shame!

(…Wait, that’s NOT a selling point?)

    I am probably the only one here that has actually seen this before. It’s on one of the “That’s Entertainment” DVD’s, I think one of the later ones when they ran out of stuff to show.

  • 2 Erica on Aug 7, 2009 at 9:27 am

    And obviously, at that time, I had run out of stuff to watch… it was before TiVo and the living wasn’t easy.

    Fever dreams!

    Oh my, this is truly creeeeepy!

    This one’s really sweet too:

    What about us fans of gaseous potato salad? What of aqueous potato salad?

  • 6 Gumba Masta on Aug 7, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Am I the only one who sees here the source of Steven King’s visions of horror?

  • 7 BDiamond on Aug 7, 2009 at 10:43 am

    The only one? Hey, don’t flatter yerself! Saw this in the theaters when it was first run.

    Wait…I mean when the That’s Entertainment movie was first released. I mean, when this installment of the That’s Entertainment franchise was first released. I mean….

    Aw hell, what I mean is I’m old, but not THAT old.

    (Is that what I mean?)

    I think they went a bit off-topic about halfway through. What do these nightmare-inducing contortionist acts have to do with their original message stating that “solid potato salad” exists?

  • 9 Erica on Aug 7, 2009 at 11:36 am

    I thought I was insulting myself, but we’ll go with flattering ;)

  • 10 Bill Corbett on Aug 7, 2009 at 11:36 am

    Avert your eyes!

  • 11 jfe on Aug 7, 2009 at 11:50 am

    Cirque du solid potato salad!

  • 12 jfe on Aug 7, 2009 at 11:56 am

    Me thinks the Riffers are hungry for potato salad this summer, whether it be solid or created by automobile. Mr. Nelson is next. Will his have any bacon in it?

  • 13 Bill Corbett on Aug 7, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    “Will his have any bacon in it?”

    Yes. Roughly 100% bacon to 0% potato.

    That is somehow disturbing and erotic at the same time. These women must be the most successful wet noodles for spine transplants in the history of the medical mad scientist experiments

  • 15 Y I Slash on Aug 7, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    Can potato salad exist in a plasma state? Get the Mythbusters on this, STAT!

  • 16 Y I Slash on Aug 7, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    “…will perform contortions that put these woman to shame!”

    Wearing those darling outfits as well, I assume?

  • 17 blue on Aug 7, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    Do i fap? laugh? vomit? so confused…

  • 18 Erica on Aug 7, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    Freeze dried potato salad? That has to have been invented as well.

  • 19 Erica on Aug 7, 2009 at 1:44 pm

    And the pigtails… must not forget the pigtails.

  • 20 BEMaven on Aug 7, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    I’m never in the mood for potato salad.

    How about some fast food?

  • 21 Houndstooth Mind on Aug 7, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    They are contortionist sisters, in a barn singing about potato salad… perfectly logical!

  • 22 Dan Noutko-Kennedy on Aug 7, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    I prefer my vintage Hollywood potato salad with a generous dollop of sweet Virginia Mayo.

  • 23 Erica on Aug 7, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    I’m sorry but jokes like this don’t cut the mustard.


  • 24 Col_Shaggy on Aug 7, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    Now Bill, that can’t be all there is to this clip can it?
    I mean when does Max Von Sydow show up and cast out Pazuzu?
    Or are you telling me that these three women are still wandering around so possessed!?!?

    My back would snap in half…

  • 27 chrismartindeed on Aug 8, 2009 at 8:35 am

    We have a similiar folk dance in Michigan.

    It’s called the French Donut.

    (And it’s perfectly legal if you’re strictly dancing.)

  • 28 mst3ktemple on Aug 8, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    Sadly, even though they possess the ability to wear their own ass as a hat they still had trouble finding husbands.

  • 29 Houndstooth Mind on Aug 9, 2009 at 7:10 am

    Hmm freeze dried potato salad, is that like astronaut potato salad?

  • 30 Erica on Aug 9, 2009 at 7:14 am

    I used to work at a museum that prided itself on “future” exhibits; they had astronaut ice cream. Freeze dried. Man, was that stuff nasty!

  • 31 Brooke on Aug 9, 2009 at 2:23 pm

    I wonder more if this helps or hurts their ability to get health insurance… Does this allow for a 401-k set up? Is my chiropractor included in the PPO or HMO? I mean career wize is this the job for me?

  • 32 Beth on Aug 9, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    Despite being extremely disturbing, this is still better than the alternative: Soiled Potato Salad.

  • 33 euphoriafish on Aug 10, 2009 at 10:41 am

    However many states potato salad may have, the test sample I was eating went through at least three of them while I was watching this clip!

  • 34 euphoriafish on Aug 10, 2009 at 10:45 am

    These women are exhibiting the same symptoms as the bouquet of guilt flowers my ex-boyfriend sent me last week! Some florist wire and flower food would go a long way in perking them up. I still don’t have a solution for when the roses and zinnias go kartwheeling out through the barn doors though.

  • 35 Earl Fando on Aug 10, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    Isn’t normal potato salad pretty non-solid to begin with? When I think of solid potato salad, I’m basically imagining Ruffles covered in mayo.

  • 36 Earl Fando on Aug 10, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    I remember seeing this as well. I believe it was on That’s Entertainment IV – The Swinging 70’s.

    Potato salad is a euphemism, of course.

  • 37 Earl Fando on Aug 10, 2009 at 7:20 pm

    No, no, their spines are made of potato salad. That has to be the answer.

  • 38 Erica on Aug 10, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    The movie’s original title was “That Was Entertainment,” and the hope was to make a sociological statement on what passed for entertainment back in the day, not to mention the fact that they had used all the good stuff by the beginning of the second half of “That’s Entertainment II”. But in the end, MGM pride won out and it simply was shortened to “That’s.”

  • 39 Fatguy on Aug 11, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    That’s Entertainment?
