Random Bit of Awesomeness: The Wildest West

JediCole here showing my age yet again by bringing to light another memorable television moment from my youth. Back in the late 70s Steve Martin’s star was very much on the rise and there were two or three television specials produced in which he starred. One was strictly commercial parodies but one was more traditional sketch comedy with a great many location filmed production pieces.

This particular favorite of mine illustrates that The Man Show got it right when they, through The Monkey Bar sketches, suggested that one thing men love is chimpanzees dressed as humans in a humorous bit. Well it was as true back then as it is today. The quality on this is not the best but then who had a VCR back then?


Brilliant. It is not only chimps in human garb it is also the precursor to music videos!
