Absurd, Odd, and Ridiculous Relics from the Videotape Era

The decade of 1988-1998 was the Golden Age of VHS, a time when anybody with a pulse, a camcorder, and a few bucks could market a video. Comedy writers Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher have spent the last 20 years collecting the best odd and unintentionally hilarious videotapes ever produced. Since 2004, they've resurrected them for sold-out audiences across the country as part of their touring show, the Found Footage Festival. Now, for the very first time, they've collected the greatest VHS covers into one handsome compendium—along with their priceless snarky commentary throughout.

“hilarious…makes a great coffee table book..something to keep in the car or even the bathroom.  It's a light and fun read and if you have any sense of humor whatsoever, you'll laugh your ass off.  We give it an A+.  Consider this one for a Xmas gift!”

WOAI-TV online review
"It's not your typical fine art coffee table book, but the cover of a videotape called “Bowling for Women Only” is likely to provide more laughter than black and white pictures of the Guggenheim. The snarky commentary running through the book has probably already told the joke you just thought of in your head, delightfully in tune with you on just how incredibly, awfully awesome these tapes are. Recommended for the “ironic enthusiast” in your life."

“Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher are apparently the Indiana Joneses of VHS, unearthing remarkable video package cover art that would otherwise be relegated to hoarder basements, bonfires, and anywhere else the worst (a.k.a., the best) videotapes go to die. I salute these dudes… Every page is magical. Your mind will be blown.”
