For the very first time, 404ing It: Breaking (Down) the Internet will head to the West Coast! On August 31st at 7:30pm, you’ll be able to see myself, Alex Navarro (Giant Bomb), Eric Pope (Harmonix), Maya Kramer (Indie PR), and Brad Muir (Double Fine) at PAX Prime in the Hedgehog Theatre! The panel will be live streamed as well as archived!
Ken Beck is an improviser and sketch comedian at UCB, and a great dude! He sent me so many videos. I’m going to list 3 of them here, and embed another separately because it is amazing and needs a bit of context.
Note- Ken and I know nothing about these videos except they are great.
What if, in 1979, the BBC licensed the Doctor Who brand out to Japan? Well, you’d get a mix of classic Doctor Who and Kamen Rider. Of course, this isn’t a real show. It’s a short by British filmmaker Joshua Kahan, but it feels real. The blue screen at the front, the special effect, even the translation FEELS like a Japanese company (licensed or not) made their own Doctor Who show.
(This video was from a segment last week called RANDOM, where I show things I think are cool but don’t fit into a particular category. And I’ll be the first person to admit I thought this was real at the time).
