Well, it’s been forever since I updated Dino Drac After Dark, and since I need to get that damn Christmas tree off the first page ASAP, let’s do this.
I hope you’ve all been well, and I appreciate you guys holding down the fort so peacefully! It’s actually very odd to be adding a new DDAD post, as the last time I updated this place, my life was almost unrecognizably different. Seems like a lot of us are having that kind of year!
The Halloween season totally crept up on us, starting earlier than it ever has before. (At least, if you judge the “start” by when stores start smacking you in the face with black-and-orange stuff.) Happy to report that while I have been indulging, I haven’t been overindulging, so I definitely don’t feel like I blew my wad by going all-in on the season *too* early.
On that note, Dino Drac’s Halloween Countdown begins next Friday night. I didn’t go wild with hyping it because, honestly, this year, I kinda just want to do whatever feels right and not get hung up on any expectations — even my own expectations. That said, don’t you worry, I’m working on stuff!
For tonight, here’s an hourlong commercial compilation I uploaded last winter, which thanks to After Dark’s long lack of updates somehow still counts as fresh material! I put a lot of work into this comp, and I hope it shows — audio levels balanced throughout, aspect ratio consistent, and every spot color-corrected. (I can’t stand it when YT comps have roving aspect ratios, or even worse, audio that jumps from a whisper to a scream.)
The spots were all pulled from my VHS tapes, and they’re all from the ’80s and ’90s. Enjoy!
