Found Footage Festival
Have you seen anything ridiculous today? What about awkward and creepy? The 80′s and 90′s brought us cheap consumer video recording with VHS. They also contained some of the most hilarious moments of human sincerity. Found Footage Festival (FFF) is two guys who collect these moments of truthful absurdity and share them with the world in bite sized pieces that are more easily digested by today’s internet audience. Found Footage Festival makes me uncomfortable… In a warm fuzzy kind of way. If your bookmark bar was a swiss army knife, #FFF would be the dirty nail file.
There was a time in our not-too-distance past when a mulleted and fluffy-moustached man could sell videos under the moniker of “self-help” in a serious attempt to muddle the not-so-thin line between seduction and flat-out sexual assault. As this video will show you, at least two men in human history thought that seducing women through hypnosis was, you know, not crossing a line.
