Dinosaur Dracula!

Commercials from a 1993 Broadcast of The Exorcist!

Well, in keeping with my long-standing tradition of dropping big content at the worst possible time, here’s a 16-minute video on Super Bowl Sunday!

Watch it on YouTube!

This one is very special to me. Today we’re gonna dive into a 1993 network television broadcast of The Exorcist, and pluck out five of the best TV commercials that aired during it. Everything from Triples Cereal to Boku!

Bonus points: This aired on *WPIX*, and it’s in fact how I first saw The Exorcist, way back in ‘93!

Really hope you guys dig this one, since I plan to do more videos like this in the future. Come for the scary demon child, stay for the shoutout to Betty Crocker’s FunDaMiddles!

If you get a chance to pass the video around, I’d appreciate it! If you can’t squeeze me into your big football day, remember to watch it later!

I Bought 100 Vintage Comic Books.

After a too-long break from YouTube, I finally have a new video for you!

Last weekend, I stopped by a teensy tiny comic book show in New Jersey. I only stayed for a few minutes, but that was enough to find a vendor who was offering 100 vintage comics for just 40 bucks. I went to this thing looking for exactly that kind of deal, so naturally, I partook!


In today’s video, I’ll tell you a bit about the show and my pickups… but this was all mainly an excuse to talk about some vintage comic book ads, featuring everything from Ninja Turtles Cereal to Fire in the Sky.

I usually cover old comic book ads in written form, but now that I’ve done it this way, I think there’s potential to make this an ongoing YouTube series. This particular video is pretty casual, but we’ll see what the reaction is. Maybe I’ll do this again sometime!

Enjoy, and thanks so much for watching!
