Trivia

The video begins with a disclaimer/warning that lasts several minutes, and covers such things as mental health, plant growth, the behavior of pets, operation of machinery, gas mileage and a warning that there is no side two of the video tape. That warning is followed by; "However, if you DO discover one...DON'T look at it!" See more »

Quotes

Dr. Howl: Do not attempt to flip the tape when you reach the end of side one, no matter what you are told by later instructions on the tape. There is no side two. However, if you do discover one, don't look at it.

Total Sensory Overload

One of the most watched videos in my nerdy collection, I seriously have not watched this whole thing in one sitting. It's not that it's that long, it's just that there's so much to see and hear that it will blow your mind long before the last few minutes. However, if you find a copy, snatch it up. If it's for rental, then by all means, make yourself a copy. Entirely worth the three dollar rental, the twenty dollar purchase, or the nine hundred dollar something or other, this thing will entertain you for years to come. The Subgenius changed the way I saw the world, and this is the living proof. Buy the book, seriously.
