CLIPPING COUPONS FOR SELFISH REASONS

I wish I was at SXSW, but instead I'm here clipping coupons for Commodore's Tough Actin' Tinactin. Hope you are all having fun.

My terrible-o-meter iz at zero. As in, it went around a full circle. There really was video about collecting coupons? If my wife/girlfriend had a coupon index, I would test her for meth.

"Clip faster, kid! You think the Puff Puff's gonna be on sale forever?"

I want to see the video on how to watch videos.

this was rad

This was very well-done, but can we have more 'boring' videos? There's something creepy and hypnotic about late 80s synth that only EIT captures. I prefer my Terrible to be quietly disturbing... like the idea that poor people can save money by buying more things, or Jackie Zeeman's eyes.

EVERYBODY LOVES JELLO! Now, can I get a discount?

As for who did the music... I bet it is a defunct EIT punk band.

Oh you guys, this slew me.

Oh the humanity! As a youngin who worked at a supermarket back in the 80s, I know firsthand that coupons were some kind of obsession at the store I worked at...there was one lady who bought 20 Sunday newspapers JUST for the coupon inserts (bet they encourage such behaviors in this video!) and at the end of our shift, we had to ADD UP every last one of those motherfuckers...ending up as glassy-eyed as Jackie Zemen herself!

I like the soundtrack and visual manipulations once and awhile... if it compliments the editing while like this.

Using Lightning Bolt for this caught me completely off guard. Nice choice! Personally, I enjoy these mind-fuck videos every once in a while.

OMG My sister and some of my sisters in law have COUPON BOOKS! Where they categorize all these coupons in plastic sleeves! (shopping with THEM is FUN! or, eh, embarrassing...) This video totally reminded me of them. COUPON CRAZY!

P.S. Oh AND my sister get's a couple of newspapers too!

Ah, good ol' Coral Sea laundry detergent. You may or may not remember their mascot, the Coral Sea Cucumber.

I'll say it again, we have the best commentors in the whole wide world. I will re-post a much less edit heavy version, just to show you how truly boring this tape is. It makes 'The Secrets Of Simple Packing' look like 'The Boxer's Omen.'

It's nice to see/hear that Lightning Bolt have cornered the licensing market of clipping coupons

Wow.

Digging the napkin attached to the blonde hottie's hair. 80's fashion was so classy.

I have a new favorite EiT clip. Wow.

Does anyone else suspect Jackie Zeman would fail a field sobriety test?

Grrg said...

Thanks for reminding me; I need to buy some Puff-Puff.

Pudding said...

Glad I bought my Puff-Puff before watching this video.

Scrumptious!

Kick-ass. I love Lightning Bolt. And my wife has become one of those people with a full-blown coupon organizer. This video might just give us the common ground we need to re-kindle our marriage!
