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.

Psychedelic, psychotronic media barrage at its finest
10 April 2004 | by (Boulder, CO) – See all my reviews

A fast paced montage of video clips taken from conspiracy media reveal the true nature of reality, allowing you to escape into the safety of your own delusions by pulling the wool over your own eyes. Revival footage of Subgenius ministers is intercut, helping to guide you along the path of true Slack. Hilarious, brilliant, and scary in its uncovering of the true Conspiracy that threatens all life on this planet. A must see, but those with heart conditions should have a licensed Doktor standing by, just in case.
