An alternative poster for the movie features a TV monster rampaging a city similar to Godzilla. Other anthology comedy films about TV before this also used an anthromorphic TV monster in their posters (a gorilla with TV head in the Groove Tube while a smiling blue TV monster in Tunnel Vision).

No, this isn't "Kentucky Fried Movie" or "Tunnelvision" (which I haven't seen in YEARS) but it's funny. A few misses and yeah, lots of dated material that, had I not grown up with some of these ads, I just would have found them amusing, not FUNNY. As I watched yesterday and finished up this morning, I could hear people saying, "That's just not funny. That's sick. It's disgusting that someone would find THAT funny after all that's happened." etc. The hunting sequence in Austin really hit me that way. You know what? This movie isn't MEANT to be nice, polite and bland, it's meant to stab you in the funny bone and twist until you can't help but laugh. Making fun of the extreme is great humor. No, not everyone will appreciate it, but not everyone is supposed to. It's like REAL TV, if you don't like it, change the channel.
Now, if I could only find "Tunnelvision" "Grove Tube" somewhere, my collection could be complete.
