On February 6, 2011 (Super Bowl Sunday), we aired what was perhaps our most outrageous video ever: The Traveling Twosome Paper Football Championship Bowl Game. This was the Super Bowl of Paper Football for us and we went all-out on the production! The video included much more than just our competition… there were fake Super Bowl style commercials, movie trailers, press conferences, etc.
While the entire hour long video is highly entertaining and worthy of your viewing, many of you have expressed great interest especially in the fake commercials and movie trailers. Therefore, for your viewing pleasure, here are all the fake commercials and movie trailers from that video on their own right here in this post… Enjoy!
1. Fake Movie Trailer: Hot Tub to Hell
What unknown terror awaits you in the shallow depths of… The Hot Tub to Hell? Made to look like a 1970s horror movie trailer, this was fun to make! It had been snowing prior to our filming so it was also a bit uncomfortable. But the result was well worth braving the cold. Not to mention, after we were done, Char and I took some time for some hot tub relaxation! Now that’s the way to end a long day of filming! The Hot Tub to Hell trailer is our attempt at a 1970s style horror movie advertisement!
2. Fake Commercial: Smooth Beer
This origin of this fake commercial goes back to 1992 when a good friend of mine told me about a dream he had. The vivid description of this dream has never left my memory. I’ve always wanted to recreate his dream as a fake commercial. Char was perfect for the role. Then again, she’s perfect at everything. To the best of my memory, this is a dead-on representation of my friend’s dream. Now – don’t you wish you had been the one to have had this dream?
3. Fake Commercial: Wrestling Aerobics with Char
When Char and I stepped in the ring for “A Day in the Life of a Professional Wrestler” we had no idea that it would become an internet sensation! Well, maybe we had a little suspicion. But in no way would anyone have guessed it would have led to this! Char invents a new kind of exercise program: Wrestling Aerobics with Char! Tone that muscle while learning head banging arm curls, headlock squats, leg lock pilates, and knockout punches! Then, step it up a notch with chains and pipes as you get in shape while delivering a beating! This is the hottest new exercise program available! Oh my.
4. Fake Commercial: Throwing Violent Tantrums
It was one year ago when Char and I produced our first fake commercial, Throwing Tantrums. This is the follow up to the product we were “advertising” then! In this followup, Throwing Violent Tantrums, wives can learn additional methods of getting their way and controlling everything by learning to throw more effective tantrums! The sad thing is, this video reflects a lot of actual marriages out there in the world. Sad, indeed.
Well, there you have it, fans. Our four fake commercials from The Traveling Twosome Paper Football Championship Bowl Game. We hope you enjoyed watching them as much as we enjoyed making them!
