Trivia

In this parody, the Kurtz character becomes "Fred Mertz" aka "Mad Man Mertz". This is a takeoff on both "Fred Mertz" (from I Love Lucy (1951)) and especially the infamous TV pitchman Mad Man Muntz. See more »

Quotes

Mertz: I was sad because I had no shoes. Until I met a man... who had no socks.

THE archetypal movie parody
4 August 2001 | by (Glendale, Ca, USA) – See all my reviews

The single best movie parody of all time. This short includes all of the major themes and "quotable quotes" of the movie applied to an absurd topic. It was timely (release within a year of the original movie), well produced and executed, included an actor who had been lost to popular attention (wasn't he dead?), and even included some of the hype surrounding the original. If you view any one movie parody, this is the one. The real question is -- where is it?
