Merry Christmas, everyone! Santa’s left the Best of the Worst crew a grouping of films that are the cinematic equivalent to a lump of coal.
Filed in: Best of the Worst • General Updates
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!. Oh nice a new BotW. Lovely.
Rich in PJs, Great, now I will have a wet dream. Again.
RLM, you’re killing me softly with your posts, killing me softly . . . with your posts, filling my world with your content, killing me softly with your po-o-o-o-sts.
We are all spoiled fucks:)
How the fuck am I going to finish my work now?
YOU SHALL NOT WORK!
Sweet Jeezbus my crack is here
Nothing says Christmas better than kid talking about his sisters big tits and some elaborate racism.
Having just put up our Christmas tree, I am disturbed by Richs actions.
Ahh, yess, seeing a bunch of people feeling miserable from watching a string of terrible movies for our entertainment. The American Dream is real. You’re doing the dark lord’s work.
Looking for contributors on a ReaderxRich Evans lemon. Msg if interested.
I see they were able to reattach Rich’s finger. And with no scars even, can I get the doctor’s number?
I think that there were no Neonazis in WW2. Just, y’know, Nazis.
But weren’t Germans born during the War neonatal Nazis?
I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your waitress.
I schwear, I will go to Li-berry and read up on schwashtikas.
I wish Jack was on every Best of the Worst. He’s hilarious.
I think one guy I work with might be a member of the master race.
“Best of the worst favorites: Xtro: $96.01” – It’s a totally reasonable price amazon.
He’s a PC gamer?
No, he looks like a nazi – elf crossbreeding result
SARCASM, TAPEWORM, DO YOU SPEAK IT?!
Videogame humour makes me retarderer, Robby.
you chose just plain “Santa Claus” over the classic “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”… HOW DARE YOU!
You spelled humor wrong.
Czech way. I know at least one nazi now.
Lol Mike had a water. Whats wrong Mike are you a RECOVERING ALCOHOLIC?
Most. Laughter. Ever.
You f-up that Xmas tree Rich!!!
Awesome Isaac shirt, Jack!
Citizen Cane just got bumped to second place for best destruction of a room scene. You fuck that tree up, Dicky!
WHERE THE FUCK IS THE CATCHING FIRE REVIEW YOU FRAUDS? Half in the Bag has gone downhill since episode 6
Implying you’ll leave after a week. We’re all here, together, forever.
Jesus that was one of the funniest episodes yet. The laughter.
I have only seen the beginning of this but I needed to make a quick comment.
With Rich creaking down to the gift and him reading about Nazi elves, this is one of the funniest beginnings to a BOTW evah! ;-D
(Now back to the video.)
It gets even better
Santa Claus has been a viewing tradition of ours for three years now. Love Santa’s different sects of slave children.
Off set Jay, the phantom man ace.
Neo-nazis? In World War II?
You fuck that tree up, Richie!
9:37…The Plinkett comes out.
The ending is my favourite so far. Overall, I think that the holidays episodes are the best of the best that is Best of the Worst.
Hey, Quickdraw McGif, don’t slow down.
you can also watch it for free.99 on youtube
Would you believe that before RLM I had no idea how to make gifs?
Jessi with her dirty jokes. You kiss Mike Stoklasa with that mouth, young lady?
RichEvans’ head was being attacked by a laser during this episode and it was very distracting.
I think you might have the best kind of autism or something:)
OMG, i’m crying, i’m laughing so loud and crying and i think my cat is thinking i’m sad and is trying to comfort me.
I started watching it on youtube at one point but of course there was a fucking part missing as always
Binding of Isaac shirt. Awesome.
Cat Sitter. I want Cat Sitter. Also, the Shoji Tobuchi show.
OMFG, I can’t believe BOTW just watched “Santa Claus Vs El Diablo”! I’m from México and that’s was like our traditional crappy Christmas movie.
RLM is officially the best anything ever!
Bad things happen if I forget to take mah brain mebdicine.
Can we see Anus Magillicutty? (9:32)
I think this Santa / Satan movie
was done on MST3K
They’re perfect for eachother.
I know it’s a controversial opinion, but I like this more than the Animated Plinkett Christmas episode.
The plot alone makes me love it. Wonder how many pawnshops contain copies of Elves…
Truly a Christmas Miracle.
Santa Claus did its job; it brought happiness and joy to even the black, shrunken hearts of the biggest hacks in Milwaukee. If that doesn’t make it a great movie, I don’t know what does.
I agree, but I will admit, I was getting worried reading the “…brought hapinness and joy to even the black…” part.
No, it goes this scene, the one from Zaat then Citizen Kane
And the birds and the beads
Watch out WOTW, here comes Tree of the Worst.
I might go to the moopies after.
I’ve never seen Rich Evans laugh so hard that he popped a vein in his forehead. Way to go, Santa Claus!
Please, please make a Tickle-Me-Rich-Evans doll. It’s all we want for Christmas.
He’s an EX-alcoholic.
Man, that episode was awes- Oh, look! It’s Care Boars!
RLM: I am mexican and they do air “Santa Vs. El Diablo” here during christmas time.
About your questions: NO, our Santa does NOT live in the sky or has robotic deer and Merlin as a friend. The film -is- mexican I believe, but those things are as weird to you as they are to us. Our “Santa myth” is pretty much your Santa myth.
This was one of the best bits on RLM.
Rich tearing up the tree, the running jokes about the Santa Claus movie being made in Mexico (with the laughter of Rich and Jessi). The crazy story in Elves.
And we learn why you don’t shred a DVD.
A lot of fun.
So much laugther and joy in this epizode.This totally helped with my post-dance of birth viewing on rlm stream trauma disorder.
Well shit! Now you guys need to get to kickstarter to make a “true story” movie about the production of “Santa Claus”
I think Jack has come up with a new motto for BOTW: “Maybe it reads better?”
Sorry, what was the lesson again? I think I missed it.
My love for you is undying now that you have brought this gif in my life.
hilarious! as always guys.
The Animated Plinkett episodes are done by a fan of the site.
The episodes are posted by RLM because they are appreciate the effort done by one of their fans.
The Animated Plinkett episodes are not official RLM productions.
(But I like them.)
The best part was in the credits, CHRISTMAS VACATION 2 isn’t even listed in the “Films Featured” section…probably because it doesn’t technically count as an honest to god movie. In fact, I think it only exists to make A CHRISTMAS STORY 2 look like CASABLANCA by comparison.
The Nazis weren’t born yesterday. The Elve was in fact a prototype, for a much grander class of people.
“I’ve seen better”
All kidding aside, they could actually do that and it would be amazing. Kind of the opposite of Where’s Deathlist?
Oh god, you need to do a follow-up if Warner Bros ever contacts you.
Sometimes, you can’t comprehend just how fuck-awful something is, even considering that you know and realize it is fuck-awful, until you see it and find out for yourself exactly how fuck-awful it really is.
I saw it too, friend. I saw it too.
Excellent episode as usual.
Great stuff guys! Keep up the good work! More Plinkett reviews!
that’s correct…i thought for sure that the folks at rlm were mst3k fans?
I saw “Santa Claus” when MST3k Did it back in the 90’s.
The best part of waking up is acid in your cuuuuuu…
I can’t believe “Santa Claus” didn’t win! That movie is so charming and crappy, it deserves it… then again, I may have nostalgia goggles.
Anywho, this was probably the best thing they’ve done with the loser ever, and a great episode. Keep it up, guys.
If you guys don’t show Elves next year on streaming then you are history’s greatest monsters.
I wish I knew what that is.
It involves computers, I’m guessing.
Well, not only should you watch the MST3K version of Santa Claus, but check out Rifftrax’s Santa Claus’ Village of Madness.
So are Merlin, the ginger blacksmith, and the sky castle all part of your national mythology?
From Rifftrax, Rich: In the late 1950s, Santa Claus remained an unfamiliar figure in much of Mexico, where holiday gift-giving customs still focused on the Magi and their feast day, Epiphany (January 6). Even today, many discussions of Mexican Christmas customs make no mention of Santa Claus, instead focusing on such traditional holiday elements as posadas and piñatas. Santa has become more popular only in recent decades.
Knee cracking Rich Evans is the best kind of Rich Evans.
They are. They just don’t talk about it a lot. It’s a Wisconsin v. Minnesota thing.
Dear HITB, all I want for Christmas is a mix-tape of Rich Evans laughing…and destroying Christmas decorations.
His voice is so high pitch, its too contagious
Note to Josh: Everyone HAS watched Santa Claus. Many, many, many times. It’s a Christmas tradition for MSTies in particular.
I was worried that shredding the DVD would be over too quickly to do justice to how awful the film was, but it turned out to be perfect
I glimpsed at the picture on the right and thought: “Is that Stephen Hawking?”
This isn’t even my final form.
Great episode, guys. Merry Christmas!
Apparently ‘morning’ in RLM World™ means ‘not-morning’.
Christmas Vacation 2 was a TV movie, by the way, which explains the low budget.
It’s a TV movie.
Why was Jack wearing two different Binding of Isaac shirts in two different scenes?
Was that intentional?
They take breaks between movies.
I don’t have any issue with a wardrobe change, it’s just odd that it consisted of two different shirts with the same game on them.
This was a perfect Christmas gift. I don’t really give a shit about the holidays (as a sad little orphan, I usually spend them working), but this was such a good episode that now I feel like I should buy a beautiful Christmas tree, and then destroy it.
Happy Holidays to everyone. And thank you RLM for making me laugh so much.
bb-15: What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge jokes?
Taco: No, bb-15. I’m trying to tell you that when you’re ready, you won’t have to
Merry Christmas, Red Letter Media!
“The Sisters of Anti-Christmas” would make a good heavy metal rock band name.
Of course we’ve all seen Santa Claus. But here’s the thing: This is the second time, this month, I’ve seen someone new talk about this movie. This must be an internet thing. Suddenly it’s big and everyone is thinking about Santa Clause again.
Did George Lucas make Elves?
That sound is RLM fanservice and it shows that Percy appreciates the efforts done by the posters he shares the forums with.
Even though Percy didn’t invent “Whooosh” I still like it because it shows how a joke flies right over the heads of some people.
My brain medicine consists of fork in the brain, fork in the brain, fork in the brain, fork in the brain…
I think it’s the same reason I keep repeating these quotes.
He goes straight to Super Saiyan 2. Sure, the hair looks like Super Saiyan Goku, but the bolts of electricity give it away.
*Pushes glasses up face and breathes heavily.*
Damn. You guys are DRUNK! This needs to happen more often…
You spelled Merica Murica Mercaria Paprika Olive Garden Freedom Eagle United St… Airli…
Nicely put. And I did indeed steal the *Whooosh*. From whom, I cannot remember. But, as Ezra Pound once said, you know an idea is part of the culture when you forget from whom you stole it.
No one talks about The Santa Clause.
Won’t you people let me sober up?!
But can anything explain its existence?
I have no idea what you just said. But I’ll defend to the death your right to be a total nerd.
Do have any proof of that assertion?
I think you mean for MSTies only. Who else has the endurance, really?
I think he meant the Tim Allen movie.
ELVES….that’s just fucking awesome.
That doesn’t make it okay.
Hey! I actually liked that movie.
He stole that from Kierkegaard.
You’ve obviously never seen Jack’s closet.
Go read the comments on ZaaT. They are downright offended at the idea of it.
that wasn’t the intention, but yeah, the pose is suggesting it a bit.
Really? I thought he got it from Li Po.
I, too, have owned cats and I can assure you that your cat is not trying to comfort you. It is either hungry or it assumes those noises you are making are a part of your death throes and is waiting to feed upon your warm corpse.
No, no, that would be historically inaccurate.
The Neo-nazis, is this movie were simply played by Keanu Reeves.
That was his crown chakra. The camera captured the moment that Rich Evans’ chakra blossomed and he achieved nirvana. He is now as he has always been. Divine.
Mike (in the background): “Rich, we have to watch it.”
Shit just got real.
I’ve never had laughter-induced tears streaming down my face. Until now. “It hurts! It hurts!”
nah man, every time she hears me cry she tries to comfort me.
I thought the point was that, though they are MSTies, they don’t feel the need to refer to MST3K every time RLM watches a movie that MST3K (or progeny) did. Seems fair.
It’s hyperbole. I don’t have proof but I do have this link to the definition of hyperbole. Wait…no…I guess I don’t. Merry Xmas!
How can you be a Neo-Nazi during WWII?
I admit it has been awhile since I read it. It came across to me at the time that they didn’t think much of MST3K fans, but perhaps I read more into it than was there.
All part of the plan, my friend. All part of the plan.
1932: I’m really into this new political movement. You probably haven’t heard of them. The Nazis. Yeah, I didn’t think so.
1939: Yeah, I was into the Nazis before they went mainstream. Now, they’re all mass market and commercial. I’m into this new thing now. You probably haven’t heard of it. The Neo-Nazis. Yeah, I didn’t think so.
I saw Santa clause in the theater @1973. It never leaves you…
and the strange fade to black dissolves
Yes. Low budget and production value + TV audience + advertisers = $$$
I hate them…As an animator I hate them, and as a fan of RLM I hate themmmm….
First rule of The Santa Clause is never talk about The Santa Clause.
“The one with the sombrero isn’t waking up” made me snort beer up my nose. You fucks.
Did anyone else notice the GoPro footage in the last scene? It really didn’t add anything to the scene, did they get sponsored or something to add it in?
This is hands down the best “Best of the Worst” yet. You guys made my Christmas. A very happy one to you all!
Kudos to whoever edited the wikipedia entry for CV2 (quoted so as to not rely on image hosts) [Spoilers to whoever hasn’t seen the video]:
“Cast member Mike Stoklasa of RedLetterMedia’s show “Best of the Worst” said the film “may have been the worst [he] had ever seen in [his] whole life.”  The cast ended the show by running a DVD copy of the film through a paper shredder, putting the shredded pieces in a Ziploc bag, and mailing them to Warner Bros. Pictures with a letter asking why the film was made.”
I had my power nap during the stream while santa claus was playing…. fuck that movie for real.
Watched half an hour of it, it was awful and I was tired…..
As Percy would say: “Whooosh!”
At this point the flash player in my browser wasn’t able to take it any more and crashed.
I didn’t even know that was possible before this.
That’s friggin’ awesome. Bravo!
I found “Santa Clause” unwatchable, even with the MST3K guys riffing it. Maybe a room full of other people was what I needed.
I’d like to refer you now to every Redlettermedia video ever uploaded.
Like, seriously, you couldn’t think of that yourself? GOSH!
I admit, when Jay’s beard isn’t on the screen to give me facial fan service…
Jessi’s an EXCELLENT substitute.
Yeah, DBZ fans are total fags.
*Tries to cover up profile picture. Fails.*
If it’s spelled “Merca” then I guess I’m a “merkin.”
Keep Plinkett’s cat the fuck away from me.
So elves were inbred and fucked with until they birthed Napoleon Dynamite? Poor elves =(
Slavery, no. Indentured servitude, yes. An important distinction.
SANTA CLAUSE IS A MYTH???
Well, considering family reunions and all that, I’m sure those are situations we can all relate to.
This is the best of the Best of the Worst. I thought nothing would be funnier than Rich’s melt down or the Elves review, but then the Santa Claus review happened…
Birds and the beads, huh?
I guess the birds need to watch the Anal Beads video for when “you know what” happens.
Only the one who DOESN’T enslave children is a myth.
At the point where they had to pick the best of the worst, I was building a complex comparison of those two movies in my head, based on the little that I saw of them and their reactions, deciding which one is more valuable and whatnot.
And then, when they asked Jay to break the tie and he immediately went for Elves, I had a revelation
And so I asked myself
“What the fuck am I even doing?”
That was absolutely delightful. As others have said, the best Best of the Worst. Merry Christmas you beautiful bastards.
I actually cicked on the link… the used is $101.70.
I’ve been watching Christmas Vacation 1 for Christmas ever since I was a kid, and just in the recent years found out about the 2nd movie. I wondered why, so I decided to give it a go, and my expectations were high. I felt ashamed when I started watching, almost like the feeling you had as a kid when you watched a movie with your family that had sex scenes. I couldn’t stand more than 20 mins of that garbage.
We get Santa Claus from you guys, so he’s the same old
North Pole-dwelling, diabetic-prone guy as yours. I’ve never seen that movie, though now I kind of want to see it.
That been said, I *have* seen ‘Santa Claus Conquers the Martians’ and I think its BotW material. I have vague memories of it being quite crazy. Maybe next year you can watch it.
SO WAS HITLER!
Yeah, she was very, uh, presentable for this episode.
[Mrs. Gryce may be reading.]
the dance of birth immediately leads to the dance of death for many people.
Forget it, the Elves box was rolling.
Half in the Nog.
While you’re probably right, I think Santa Claus originated in Germany, but I’m not sure.
That “Santa Claus” movie is on the Mystery Science Theater 3000 vol. XVI DVD set. It also has a bonus feature with some behind the scenes information about the movie.
(“Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” was also on MST3K, as you have no doubt been told.)
Mike: Are you having a good Christmas? Because I am.
Jay: What’s Christmas?
You fuck that tree up, Rich!
Absolutely brilliant. Best one since Incredible Bulk.
Switch your current printer to a Kodak printer
I’ve been thinking for a while now that having four people discussing the movies is great for the comedy… but it’s bad for the voting. So yeah, I think a fifth voter, like whomever is running the camera, should get a tie-breaking vote when and if there is a tie. So keep that up.
And this is not the second tie. That last one was not the first. Rich Evans, in one of the episodes, had changed his vote and there was a tie. I think that was the first tie. I think it was the Road to Thunderpants episode, and technically it was a tie for the worst… but it was still a tie.
man loves his indie games
SHIELD YOUR EYES!!!
That second movie discussion was the most hilarity I’ve experienced in one sitting in a very long time. Bravo!
Merry Christmas guys
Why didn’t you watch “The Dog Who Got Shot Out Back For Ruining Christmas”?
I can think of no other subject more worthy…
but did you do it without photoshop? I’m asking because I want to make-a the gifs but most of the how-to’s involve photoshop which I don’t have.
OW MY GROIN
You guys are the best! Thanks so much for the stream and all the great content you’ve brought us this year. Best Christmas special ever.
No Rich! Plinkett spent so long putting that tree up!
Sick Binding of Isaac shirt broseph. You win Christmas.
Haven’t figured out that woman’s name, but she gets hotter with every episode.
That santa 1959 was boring… u guys were right u had to watch it with a group of people. The stream was awesome BTW…
If Rich showed up at my house on Christmas morning with a bow on his head I would be so happy. Shots would probably cost an arm and a leg but he could become a new member of the family. No getting on furniture though.
Good call asking Jay for the tiebreaker.
Then she looks horrified when Mike says “Cock.”
You guys were so. Very . Drunk. Maybe more. And it is hilarious.
yeah! the comment reactions were hilarious, especially going through all the kid nation stuff with folks from around the world! A perfect movie choice for the stream!
“gif”? Did you misspell “girl” or “wife”?
Everyone, make sure you send Malorie1469 some pizza rolls for Christmas.
Possibly the best episode of BotW yet. Thanks RLM, and thanks for the awesome stream yesterday!
Santa Claus and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians were both done on MST3K.
This was the best episode by a mile. Seeing you guys lose your shit over Santa Clause was a fucking treat and I would have been happy w/ that scene alone, but then you decided to ice the cake by not only destroying Christmas Vacation 2, but mailing the remains back to the Warner Bros. This truly puts me in the spirit of the season. To the entire Best of the Worst crew, to every one of you guys at RedLetterMedia, I’m wishing you the best of holidays. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, all that good shit.
Jay is hot in this episode.
It’s in the credits, it’s Jessi
dat binding of isaac shirt tho
Yea.. surprised seemingly none of them had seen the MST3K version. But not all the scenes made it into that one.. like the half naked blacksmith and Santa on the shake machine..
Rich, what’s wrong with your face?
This is what you were doing while we were stuck watching Deathlist last night,isn’t it?
Jay is hawt in EVERY episode…
Dude, I know. I was joking. You know. Joking.
After a second viewing of this episode, I think that the ribbon tied in a bow on Rich’s head is a good look for him.
Also, there were moments when I laughed so hard at this show that my face hurt.
I use GIMP for after effects and editing.. the rest of my process is mostly witchcraft, but I can assure you that none of it involves photoshop.
Wikipedia claims he’s based on a Dutch mythical character called Sinterklaas, which is itself based on a real guy that may or may not have given people gifts anonymously (the same sources allege that he could raise the dead).
MST3k die-hard fan here… which, really, is probably the biggest reason why I love RLM so much; RLM has filled the void left in my heart by the absence of new MSTs.
The Dutch also gave him a black slave, “Black Pete” who takes care of the naughty kids.
The letter is too vague. WB Pictures is just going to assume that they want their broken DVD replaced or something.
Bring out the gimp, eh?
But that one doesn’t have the time machine.
You Are Poor.
Jay went home to his mommy and daddy for Christmas? Only the Jews stayed behind to match movies?
He is audible during the discussion and picks the best movie. He is the Man behind the camera of the piece.
true, but instead the secret nazi sign language they were going to use in the steampunk future.
I’m guessing this one is the ‘strangle-the-flamingo’ salute.
And I would like to reefer Redlettermedia.
Why does Mike look like Mike from “Saving private Ryan”?
What a wonderful Christmas gift! Thanks everyone. Happy Holidays
Santa Clause, starring Tim Allen?
I was thinking more along the lines of Cthulhu but if you insist on being mundane.
Hmm. I don’t think that means what you think it means. Or please explain what part of “Do have any proof of that assertion?” you think I didn’t understand.
No, The Santa Clause was a movie starring Tim Allen.
It really depends on whether or not you think a child can enter into a contract. In civilized countries, children can’t so, at the very least, the children from those countries would be slaves.
MST3K never riffed the Tim Allen movie The Santa Clause. That may have been a fever dream.
He made Ewoks. So you were almost there.
Well, for many babies, anyway.
But the Krampus is real.
How long have you been thinking about this? And when do we start occupying BOTW until our demands for democritization are met?
In germany the name is quite different. It is called ‘Weihnachtsmann’ (Christmasman). But I think Santa’s little helper originated in germany as ‘Knecht Ruprecht’, who did the same job as ‘Black Pete’, while he was also working for the ‘Nikolaus’ who supposed to give children apples and nuts and is celebrated on December 6th.
Merry Christmas everyone
Guest director: JJ Abrams.
Why did Mike look STRAIGHT AT ME when he mentioned “little kids who are retarded”?
Were you happy that they did Santa Claus, and then a little bit sad that none of them seem to have any awareness of MST3K? No? Just me then? OK.
And rocking the Binding of Isaac T-shirt. If I wasn’t already pretty happy with his presence, he would have won me over by now.
I was particulary amazed with that “I” over Jay´s head….What´s the hidden message here?
I was particulary amazed with that giant “I” over Jay´s head…What´s the hidden message here?
We also have a demon, looking much like Satan in the movie, who helps Saint Nicholas., I think he is called Krampus in Austria, not sure about Germany.
Then proceeds to make several cock jokes.
“Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit like incest, rape and Nazis.”
Amen. Brilliant episode and I’m glad you sent that piece of crap back to Warner Bros. Merry Christmas Hack Frauds!
He, in fact, was the tie breaker. For one glorious moment, he was the most important person in the universe…
HEY! That wasn’t me! That was the old me. Weird…
Well, there’s about 200 MST3K episodes, I think, so I’m not surprised if they haven’t seen every single episode… (But yeah, a little bit)
Six weeks, three days and 4 hours. And by occupy, do you mean we all go to Milwaukee and sit in the shot until they give into our demands or call the cops?
Okay… this converstation is boring an nerdy.
Also, wasn’t Saint Nikolaos from Greece supposed to be the basis for Santa Claus?
Holy hell I’m going to have to explain a joke. Okay!: I was poking fun at you for asking for proof (multiple times) in the other section but it flew right over your head and you actually thought I was being serious.
Of course I’m not going to ask for actual proof in an RLM thread! Only pretentious elitists do that…
I am a personification of boring and nerdy, cannot help it.
You know, if you only listen to the final part of the video from 52:05 mark, it sounds like something very odd is going on.
I tried MST and Rifftrax and I just cannot get into it, not sure why, I like the concept and watch movies with fan commentaries a lot. I need to try it again, since, there is usually nothing but love for the show.
I had heard that gimp doesn’t get as nice results as photoshop but it looks fine to me. Thanks!
Wow Best of the Worst: Christmas Special. I was really hoping for at another Plinkett “movie” but I guess that would be too much hard work for you guys. I get that you really wanna push Rich Evens a the new internet “funny-man”, but you know what? It’s slock and you know it, so have a fucking happy holidays or whatever you Americans say to avoid unpleasant commentary. I just go take my anti-depressive-pills now and hope for this year to disappear as fast as possible. FU internetz.
That either means Rich was talking about you, or Mike was sharing an uncomfortable glance with us the way you might with siblings when Grandma starts talking about the ethnic neighbors that moved in next door.
The Nazi Christmas Elves looks like the Crawlers from “The Descent”, where the women go cave exploring
Santa Claus was on MST3K!
I was thinking more we just like something on Facebook or throw some hashtags up on twitter until our demands are met or we lose interest.
Nope, still not getting it. Explain louder, please. I can’t hear you over all that whoooshing.
No no… I like the -spend hundreds of dollars to travel to, and temporarily live in, Milwaukee just to mess with a group of people who like to film stuff- idea.
The facebook thing seems like way too much hassle anyway.
Thank you so much for letting us watch the movie on the stream before you did it on BOTW. Made it even better.
You guys should watch a “A Christmas Story 2” sometime if you want another abhorrent sequel to make you hate all that is good in the world. Nothing is sacred, especially if you can turn it into a franchise!
Kids remember a magical time, when we got at leas ONE Plinkett review a year, about around Christmas? A magical time, full of tearing films apart, locking hookers in basements, and remembering Plinketts childhood?
Well f*** u, heres a BoTW!
“Well, fuck you” is about right. You know you can swear on the internet, right?
RLM guys stream movies for 12 hours and then manage to get out an hour long video the next day, almost on Christmas and people still complain? Truly, the Christmas spirit is all around.
Santa Claus is not a myth, he’s a mythter.
Ahem. Who do you think runs ABC?
You might have gone too far in a few places.
As is the norm, I think its just a vocal, whiney minority. I, for one, am thankful that the guys (and gal) took the time to give us more awesome free content to watch, just in time for Christmas. Another great episode.
I actually like Rifftrax. I think Mike, Kevin, and Bill do a really good job–it basically feels like late-seasons MST3K.
Mrs. Gryce and I also saw Cinematic Titanic Live in Washingtown. Those guys were great too, but it was a little raw when the DVD player broken down during the third reel.
So with Rifftrax, Cinematic Titanic, and hundreds of MST3K eps on DVD and Youtube, there may simply be too much of a good thing.
I was hoping “Santa Claus” was “Santa Claus: The Movie” from 1985.
You know the one with the exploding candy that made you fly?
If you like late-season MST3K (i.e., Mike Nelson, Kevin, and Bill), then you should try Rifftrax.
But also: http://www.moongadget.com/redlettermedia/index.html
Oh my god, the final part where they mail the shredded DVD back and the letter has to be the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while. Though my guess is WB, being a soulless company is just going to send them a new copy, thinking that the DVD came like that somehow.
I vote Rich’s freakout as best of the worst
The Hangover 4: The Making of Santa Claus
Once again, Im sold:)
Just how many Pebkios can there be?:)
The look on Mike’s face after he makes the dead kids joke is priceless. He knows he nailed it and just savors the moment.
That was the funniest Best of the Worst yet!
People from Europe sure are grumpy. Do you guys even celebrate Christmas?
most enjoyable episode ever
Now Vampire! Now Nightmare!
Now Satan and Demon!
On Brainfork! On Murder!
On Plinkett’s Red Semen!
Merry Christmas boys and girls! Ho ho oh no…
Oh yes we do. We have a Christmas Eve corrida (in the Coloseum), after which we have a traditional dinner of Wiener schnitzel on baguette dipped in fondue and the lovely evening ends when we get in our Saab to drive to IKEA, where we are very precise, while quite nazi-like.
when the hell is jay going to take his shirt off?!?!
I saw the National Lampoon movie at a Big Lots for $5. I still thought it was overpriced.
My neighbor could be Mike’s brother. And he’s always drunk.
Yes, I agree, very watchable…
I… um… actually don’t know what you’re talking about.
Why isn’t this a real movie, dammit?
Wow… okay. A new Plinkett review for christmas, eh? I can see that, sure. But why are you complaining now? I better see you posting tomorrow about how it’s ANOTHER DAY we haven’t gotten a Plinkett Review.
I want to see at least one of these a day from now on or I’m just going to assume that this is REALLY about some bad cheese you ate…
It doesn’t matter… what matters is that HE’S STEALING MY UPVOTES! What a douchebag.
I hate to be the one to tell you… but IKEA is made up. Parents just lie to their kids about IKEA to make them believe in the magic of capitalism…
Kudos on setting up a shot underneath the paper shredder!
i love it when Rich Evans loses it and wrecks sh*t.
I’m a misanthropist who hates only ONE thing in the world more than Christmas, and that’s children. That being said, you seem like the most miserable twat alive.
The first still comes off pretty negative and the second positive. What I got from that was Mike likes MST3K and Jay not so much. In the end, it doesn’t matter whether they like each other or dance fight through the slums of Milwaukee. All that matters is that I get regular content to keep the gun out of my mouth.
I’m gotta say, that dinner sounds delicious.
What do you expect to find? Muscles?
“Homeless Mall Santa ex-detective” is a career path I should get on.
Here in mexico santa sneaks in homes at night taking away all the valuables, its a popular tradition to kill santa and display his body in the front porch to scare away other santas.
What is exohol? Can I inject it or snort it?
It could have been a 16oz vodka gimlet. Jeeze, have some faith.
The children are all dead or gasping for air.
The witch-wife is tied up, stuck in her lair.
The strippers are here, their tassels a-spin.
Merry X-mas to all, let the party begin.
And thanks to RLM and you Plinkettes for much merriment this past year. I don’t know how long Mike, Jay & Co. can keep up the funny, but God rest ye merry, gentlemen (and Jessi). Here’s hoping for continued good times.
Being able to grow a sweet beard is mandatory.
Rumor has it that if you donate enough money to RLM they will release the secret, never-before-seen Plinkett review of the Indiana Jones Trilogy.
Are you sure? I’m pretty sure you are thinking of The Santa Clause.
Her name is Lupita and this is her first episode. And she is 5 years old, you monster.
It’s the movie your brain gets when you watch “Santa Claus” and “Old Yeller” at the same time.
yeah, I actually just watched MST3k episode with this film right before I went on RLM and saw this was posted
Dan Haggerty stars as “Shooter” McGavin.
Psh yeah, and Grizzly Adams had a beard.
This completely explains who the “Star Whackers” were that chased Randy Quaid and his apparently desperate wife into Canada. No tinfoil hat conspiracy theory necessary. They’re just a handful of people who paid to see Christmas Vacation 2 and could not accept the loss of those 80 minutes of their lives without some blood in return. You can see their point.
I asked myself the same thing.
Yes, the best series from RLM has come on Christmas Thank you!
But he is extra-hot in this episode. They should find an excuse to get him in his underwear.
I have a response from WB:
“Dear Best of the Worst Crew,
Thank you for writing me.
After taking some time to ponder your question, I think that the following answer will suffice: Fuck you, that’s why.
Hope this helps!
Best episode so far. Thank you and merry christmas. I hope you burn in hell.
i was hoping no-one else knew that so i could be all hipster about it :/
Starring Dudley Moore as an elf and John Lithgow hamming it up beyond all recognition.
“We’ll call it … CHRISTMAS TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!”
Your wife is a gif, percy. She is, in fact, a gif.
You can’t fool me. There ain’t no Sanity Clause.
I love how “Christmas Vacation 2” isn’t mentioned in “Films” in the credits.
Than your life has been better than mine.
Yay, what a seasonal treat!
As someone who grew up around and in Juarez, I can confirm that Santa Claus is a Christmas Classic in Mexico in the same way Charlie Brown Christmas or It’s a Wonderful Life is here. Every year since I can remember Santa and his child slaves battled demons around Christmastime, leaving a strange and terrible gloom hanging over the place every time.
It never became popular in America, and I never understood why.
Plinkett Reviews only work when the movie is astronomically bad, and when Mr. Plinkett has high emotional investment in the series of films. Otherwise it’s just forced.
And there is nothing wrong with BoTW. Do you even watch them, or HiTB? I used to complain about a lack of Plinkett before I got into them to, now I’m just happy when anything new comes out on RLM.
Merry Christmas, you filthy animal.
Binding of Isaac shirt – well done!
Getting a Merry Christmas from Rich Evans brings a gay time into my house for the whole day.
Damn, I can’t really grow facial hair too well. I can get started on the smell with an $8 bottle of gin.
The downvote must have come from Randy Quaid.
Apropos, no doubt.
8 bucks!? You need to go back to Homeless 101. Today’s assignment: Eat a can of Sterno.
Cheers to all, and to all a good black-out!
I know that in reality that they had to rewrap the national Lampoon movie up again in order to get Rich to react that way, but I prefer to think that Rich has the power of prophecy.
Get this man a mexican cookie. Bravo or Ole.
And reveal his Kryptonian heart? It must remain a secret so that he can kill Zack Snyder.
I failed Homeless 101. My blanket only smelled like wet dog. I was up late studying for Begging Basics and forgot piss my pants with the blanket wrapped around me.
Didn’t you saw the rlm stream last sunday? It was fun to watch it with other guys and read their reactions.
There’s no mexican Santa Claus, kids asks for presents to the child Jesus and the Three Wise Men, when I was a child asking for presents to Santa Claus was kinda antipatriotic same goes for celebrating Halloween insted of Día de los Muertos.
The Santa Claus and all of his mythology in that movie was the result of a bad attemp to cater to different cultures.
Well, except for that one thing, you could almost call this the Worst of the Best.
Czech kids get presents from baby Jesus. How retarded must we all be?
Great episode, almost an hour long but it flew by!
I bet he is one of the upvotes, he would be too dumb to get the voting system
Isn’t that not giving him too much credit, or have I confused even myself?
this was the most hillarious best of the worst episode ever, i laughed so freaking hard man! hahaha XD omg
merry christmas yall!
It is. I was confused while writing that, proofreading that and responding to comments about that.
GUYS! This is the best thing you ever made! Please keep up the great work!
And THANK YOU!
When’s the next Mark Bisone comment!?!
Have you guys ever thought about doing a riff track of old horror movies?
Am I the only person who’s actually seen “Elves”?
No wait! I’ve got it: This movie is actually an attempt to lampoon the idea of Santa Claus. It’s a crazy enough concept anyway, that yeah, now he lives with Merlin! And a hairy blacksmith! In the clouds! In a castle! And he’s got the creepiest tools ever!
Fuck surprise gifts, a new RLM video will suffice.
Nope! Mike, Jay, Jessi, Rich, and Jack did as well! 😀
no Star Wars Holiday Special?
Rich Evans is fucking amazing in this episode. That’s the true spirit of Christmas, right there.
Obviously, aside from them.
Possibly the best BOTW I’ve ever seen
On purpose texas chainsaw massacre scene with the tree?
Some people drink and end up with tatoos, others with film cannisters. Pure gold.
I love how Christmas Vacation 2 wasn’t even included in the end credits. The movie is now nothing.
Now I really wanna watch the first National Lampoon Christmas film again. Merry Christmas everybody!
Guy with mo hair who’s name escapes me and I am too lazy to check must really like Binding of Isaac.
This will probably stand as my favorite BOTW. Belated Merry Christmas you hacks!
Wait… is that a danish newspaper article hanging on the wall? What’s the story there?
For whatever reason I laughed the hardest at Jay going, “The dog farted and it’s stinky.”
If that’s what it is, it’s probably a story about when Mike went to Denmark for a film festival. RedLetterMedia is probably mentioned in the article. That would be my guess.
Hey, we really did have fondue for Christmas! Is that a stereotype? Oh gad…
The Dutch view Santa as a completely different person, however. He is the “Kerstman” or Christmas Man and St. Nicholas is De Sint who arrives by boat from Spain with his band of merry slaves, I mean helpers.
When I saw that Santa brought children from all over the world to help him, and then it cuts to African children, I thought, “Santa enslaves black people.”
Holy shit. That’s a rod!
That was my first guess as well, except the headline says “Beard – Beard in earnest”.
A googlesearch revealed that is has to do with the Movember campaign.
When you put out a glass of bourbon, a plate of hash brownies, and pretend to be fast asleep!
I kinda want to see Elves actually.
gif = portmanteau for girl-wife?
She could also be a spork. Have you checked recently?
Christmas Vacation 2? I’m sorry but I’m not aware of the existence of such movie.
I think he said stingy……
Alex, you’re probably right. Santa enslaves the blacks.
First time that blip rolling into Care Boar’s Save Christmas” was seasonally relevant!
As Percy linked. They know, they are just above acknowledging it. I have mixed feelings on that, but I also have mixed feelings on child murder so I don’t really know what that means.
Oh, I would jump out the car,… If there is one bomb, there could be two.
After 4 days without power, heat, hot water, phone or internet (thank you Toronto ice storm and terrifying falling frozen trees!!!!) this Best of the Worst was absolutely the best first use of my newly restored electricity!!!! Bravo RLM team, and merry xmas, this was an absolute delight!!!
That’s reasonable. But what if the bomb is outside the car. After all, if there is one bomb inside, there could be two outside.
I was wondering why it felt so Canadianless around here. You don’t notice the smell of back bacon and poutine until it’s gone.
It’s the only reasonable explanation.
No, they’re saving it for Life Day.
You guys shoulda turned the half shredded Christmas Vacation 2 dvd into an ornament.
yes, Lupita was the best!!
lololol, FUCK YOU, BAUMAN! 😀
That whole section around 31:20 would be a fucking awesome Hangover 2!!!
GIMP isn’t as fast, probably because of that bad leg lag.
Half in the Fraaaame.
Jay is an Apple product?…
Edit: No, wait, they’re too cool to use uppercase i’s at the beginning of names. It’s the second letter that gets capitalized.
I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast
By “outside” I assume you mean attached to the outside of the car and not just some bomb hidden in the road – He would have seen the bombs attached to the car (unless he was totally drunk),… and in any case the car is still explosive and therefore getting away from it is the best action. If by “outside” you mean on the road, then they would have to put bombs all the way down the road to make sure he landed on one (which is impractical).
i wish i had a qt jessi of my own :'(
Owwwwww. I burst a spleen laughing at Rich’s freakout. I can feel my fluids mingling. I think I’m dying. You hack frauds killed me! You killllllled meeeeeeeee….
If there’s one thing I know about neo-nazis, it’s their impracticability.
The whole year I have watched your videos on this shitty website; so you could get some ad revenue.
And then you stream the marathon on some hack-fraud website that does not allow people outside ‘Murica to watch for longer than a minute.
Forgive, never forget..
But they have no tree to hang it on!
I laughed hard enough to be very worried I might die. Jay ducking and running away with the camera was what did it. My vision narrowed to tiny points and I was sure it was all over.
I can’t believe you guys were able to resist a movie titled “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”
I’ll be curious forever now.
4:33 Hey, it’s Leo from Twin Peaks.
And his wife. They are convinced I’m a star chaser or something.
I mean, even the lightbulb is considered a bad idea by some people.
No need, my blurry friend. MST3K and Cinematic Titanic both have it on offer. Poor substitutes for a Rich Evans infused review, but it’s all I have.
For gawds sake, shut up about more Plinkett reviews. It’s over. Move on.
When Jessi really gets going, her laugh is so contagious.
I was rewatching this video and then it suddenly hit me: a shelve on the wall over my head. Please RLM, stop being this funny, since the pure energy emanates from my laptop and dislocates nails in my apartment walls. Btw, I love Richs beard and wonder how Jays girlfriend, the ever so cute Jack, will sanitize the pink zoo mrghstsjbjs
And this relates to the video how? And why are you even on this site and want to support it if you don’t care for their stuff?
Certainly the gigliest BotW episode.
Enjoyed Rich’s criticism about the need for a viewer to be able to relate to characters. What separates a character like Clark from Randy is Clark, despite the slapstick and buffoonery, has a heart at the end of the day. The same can be said for a character like Homer Simpson. A complete moron, but also a lovable, caring, and endearing father/ husband.
A character like Randy doesn’t work because his existence is solely based on perpetuating lazily written “jokes” and cloyingly retarded behavior. The result is his character being a soulless husk, who is immediately insufferable to watch. The same can be said for a character like Peter Griffin. A moron that exists only to be a moron, and only stupid children find him humorous.
No, that’s Rich Evans, he’s not a Yankees third baseman.
/attempt at sports humor.
It does not relate, but I’ll say it anyway.
It is not so much that I don’t care for their stuff I was talking about the commercials (I wasn’t very clear admittedly). This website is a piece of shit, some turnkey technologies, smacked together poorly, and its glue seems to be made of advertisment.
I wholly understand that they did it this way but it is not an enjoyable browsing experience. Most annoying of all is of course, the blip.tv player. It’s has bugs that never get fixed and it has a bad interface.
Santa Clause. The one you just watched a video about.
You know what. You win. I loved the part where Rich Evans dressed up as Tim Allen. I never expected The Santa Clause to win BOTW but they really loved it.
Well, classic-episode Homer Simpson at least. He’s been the equivalent of Randy since season 11 or so.
Hooray for Santy Claus, cha cha cha!
I don’t need RLM and MST3K to compete, really. I’m glad they don’t cover the same material.
No, but RIFFTRAX has.
Hexeno is right, actually. Mexico didn’t have Santa Claus til the late 60’s. They basically celebrated the Three Wise Men.
It’s not a film. It’s a TV movie.
The Santa Clause is a Tim Allen movie. It’s not Santa Claus.
Anyone else wondering how there could have been a Neo-Nazi in the 1940s like the description for “Elves” described?
What the fuck? No, our santa doesn’t live in the clouds, he’s just like your santa. Saludos desde Jalisco a los paisanos.
Hey guys you’re all my friends right?
This scene with the bomb from the ‘Elves’ was just wonderful. Real gem. Overall, good episode of BotW. I hope WB’ll enjoy the letter.
Yeah, I wondered a little about that, too. I think the overcomplicated plot also had a time-travel involvment, and these guys are really from the 90ties… straight out of Rostock, I assume….
No really, they just thought it sounded more ‘Nazi’-like. Super-Hyper-Neo-Nazi, was a term, considered for the sequel, I guess.
Yeah, also the Video Game Nerd, did it a few years ago.
But when you said: ‘Rich Evans infused review’…
why don’t you guys let Rich Evans do his 1 1/2 Hour review of stuff, since you clearly have no intention to continue the (Stoklasa) Plinkett Legacy and Rich seems like the kind of guy who would do anything to get out of his crack-smoking-hobo-way-of-life…
This is quite likely the Best of the Best of the Worst. My notes are as follows: needs more Mike. Needs more Rich. Needs at LEAST 98% more Jay. Needs more adorable Jessi. Needs more bald guy whose name I can never remember until I hear it, and then I’m like “OH YEAH! THAT’S RIGHT! He’s so funny.”
How’s death treating you?
Mexican Santa Claus, as redubbed by K. Gordon Murray’s people……unlike the Aztec Mummy or Santo movies, that flick is pure “What The Fuuuck?!?” in English or Spanish.
That was really amazing.
But it’s really annoying having video ads on the website when you’re trying to watch. Had to see it on Youtube. :/
“Beard in earnest” is an old scandinavian saying from the viking age that still lives on today. Typically the meaning of the saying is highly sexualized – from what I gather many men were seriosly considering taking Mike home the day of his appearance at CPH Dox. A journalist spotted the tendency of the crowd and had to center his article around it.Well either that or google translate gets its translations from the romanian prostitute down the street from their offices.
Ads are annoying. Thanks for the insight.
I really hope we get to see the response from Warner Bros., if there is one.
I meant when you are trying to watch a video and the random ad sound gets in the way of actually watching it. Not in general.
It’s going to be 2014 in three days! If you don’t have Ad Block by now, it is YOUR fault!
Well, yeah, but if you don’t have RLM whitelisted, then you are a dick. A hairy small one. That smells bad.
Stop masturbating the comma button.
Hey, at least he uses commas…
I won’t inconvenience myself to financially support them. I will, however, buy every piece of merchandise they have to offer.
Recently there have been ads that, if you hover your mouse over, will expand and take up most of the screen, playing annoying audio/music along with it.
I’ve never intentionally hovered over one, but if I go to click on a new tab and cross over the ad going off the page [as in the edge of the page is part way covering where my mouse left the ad], it will expand and play while I’m on another tab. Even if I come back to this tab, in order to stop it from expanding [it has a bar that goes across to time it], you need to specifically put your mouse back over the ad then onto the RLM site again. It you just come back to the page, it’ll expand and play. Damned annoying.
Are you referring to Jake Jeff Jango Django Jumbo Jack?
I expected something else to follow “When Jessi really gets going…”
Yeah, I guess it was kinda bad around here too [my part of Canada], some people going powerless through Christmas.
I’m still laughing. This is the gif that keeps on giffing.
“I’m not a pervert, I like seeing naked girls.”
“I’m your fucking sister!”
“Yeah and you’ve got fucking big tits and I’m gonna tell everybody I saw ’em!”
I was quite shocked when I heard these lines and so was everyone in this viewing…
…everyone except for Rich Evans, of course, who seems interested in where this is heading.
At 18:04, Jack mentions a ‘gas powered dildo’. Oddly enough, I drew one of those [well, a vibrator, anyway] for some joke I had made on December 23rd, 2012, exactly one year before this was uploaded. Weird.
Usually I haven’t had other tabs open when it happens. And where the sound is coming from is hard to find on the page. I’d really rather not block the ads since that helps support them.
UPDATE: Even Mrs. Gryce commented on how cute Jessi looked this ep.
And you didn’t invite Sepia Jack over?
You forgot: AIDS Moby.
And furiously masturbating
I love the the little touch of putting tiny face on and that some of the vibration lines look like “dildo whiskers”..
Oh… I thought those WERE whiskers…
Yes but, he has no, idea what to do with, them.
It wasn’t until after I finished it that I thought, “Dammit, that didn’t turn out how I wanted it to.”
Oh well, hopefully there’s a market out there for gas powered vibrators with whiskers on the tip.
PS – There are flames on it as well.
“Yeah, I wondered a little about that too. I think the overly complicated plot also had a time-travel involvement and these guys are really from the 90ties… straight out of Rostock, I assume….
No really, they just thought it sounded more ‘Nazi’-like. Super-Hyper-Neo-Nazi was a term considered for the sequel, I guess.”
I cut the number of commas in half and it reads much easier.
“I can’t believe I’ve got AIIIIIIIIIIDS!“
I was oot and aboot helping people de-ice their igloos dere.
“PS – There are flames on it as well”
That reminds me of the largest fuck saw ever built. It was operational somewhere during the post apocalyptic period (1985-1995).
See footage below. As you can see, quite a lot of work goes into starting this thing up and operating it. Understandably, because there was an energy crisis at the time.
Was it one of those compliments that end with “..so you have no chance with her, stick it back in your pants you creep”. Or does that just happen to me?
I recently saw a poor old woman fall down stairs and I laugheed my ass off. But to be honest, I was imagining she was the pope. She died few hours later.
That sketch could be a veritable facsillime of my bachelor party.
Rad binding-of-Isaac shirt!!
I don’t believe that was a look of horror. I think she was mimicking the giant mouth from the movie, which is why she was immediately blushing afterwards.
It was implied.
The only thing I saw was that Shinzon’s body double is in it.
“Instead of throwing the bomb out the window, he jumps out of the car.”
I guess it’s faster to unbuckle himself, open a door at high speed, and jump out than it is to roll down a window.
Was it? I need to check between ALL the lines when reading I guess.
The whole scene kept reminding me of Big Lebowski, but played straight.
Aaaaaah. Santa Claus is one of my favorite MST3Ks. You nailed it right on the head when you mentioned a good deal of the entertainment comes from riffing on it and trying to figure out how it came about.
And I really want to check out Elves. I know I saw that clip of the kid so eloquently complimenting his sister’s bust somewhere before.
A wife would only compliment another woman if she was certain that, one way or another, the other woman is not a threat.
I’m gonna just put up some stills from czech movies that usually air around Christmas, seeing if you can pick a certain theme (we don’t do Santa).
Relatively new one
This is actually an actress.
Famous old singer
Racist to capuchin monkeys.
To be fair, Jack is a wizard, so he casts illusion spells to make us forget who he is.
I suppose it is possible that, on the spur of the moment, the driver figured that there might be more than one bomb in the car… Better safe than sorry. (Although I accept the writers probably didn’t think of that.)
This is one of the greatest BOTW, nay – movie reviews – of all time.
In general, horns? Specifically, Santa-er, I mean Satan? Except for she who may have them hidden under her hair or may just be plain, all around evil. Are there gifts and eaties involved? If so, I don’t care if it’s the welcoming committee from the 9th circle of hell, bring on the good times.
leave a comment on this webzone if you want a pizza roll.
Clearly, your mother didn’t oxygenate her wombspace.
were you a rape experiment?
I can only say that that statement is correct. My mother has never oxygenated her wombspace.
“What would Luptia Do?” Stealing is evil, do not be evil.
(just a joke, I just wanted to say “WWLD?”)
Looks like someone mentioned this BOTW in the Wiki article for “Christmas Vacation 2.” Yay!!
Wow. And they don’t just let anybody edit those.
Very witty. However, my point is simply that it’s fun to see RLM mentioned elsewhere on the web. Maybe someone new sees the link and they check out the site.
Looking at all the pics, the theme is that you guys are really… horny?
You’re being very generous by calling it a ‘sketch’.
So you’re saying they picked the cotton for all the fake snow?…
Oh fuck, they’re in Canada?! This worries me greatly…
The actions of Mike on repeat in this animated GIF are too much for me.
I was waiting for them to make that joke but they never did.
I thought he censored out ‘fart’.
It’s Superman’s lock, except the S stands for hope.
Your face hurt?
What’s wrong with your faaa-
When I first read this, I didn’t notice the ‘up’.
Which is ironic because I like floating houses.
No. It’s a word. Sort of. It’s a file extension relating to image files. Gif = Graphics interchange format. It’s pronounced “Jiff” like the peanut butter.
(I don’t need anyone arguing “nuhuh! it’s pronounced like “GIFT” without the “T”. You’re wrong. The inventor of the Graphics interchange format even said “It’s pronounced ‘jiff'”… So go ahead and take those hands off the keyboard.)
Fuck you, Disqus.
Something just dawned on me, they’re Neo-Nazis because they’re the chosen ones…
I stumbled across this. I’m not sure which is scarier:
The fact that this is the ShowBiz Pizza Bear in motion or the song they’re singing…
I am already in pic spamming mood, so here are few puzzles. Find 10 differences (or you know, way more), here:
Sorry, these are completely the same
Happy fucking new fucking year fucking, to all and especially those who provide us with the wonders of RLM.
the rlm crew seem to get sexier with age based on your pictures.you woudn’t happend to have any gillian,jesse and nadine comparisons would you tapewormbike? i need it for my anal-ysis.
These are mostly taken (the older ones) from very old shoots and in case of Mike, the behind the scenes of Gorilla Interrupted, thus no Jessi.. But I can rumage around and look (not that I was not doing that anyway)
Check this one out, starring the wonderful Jocelyn Ridgely.
Why would anyone think there is more than one bomb?
Hilarious episode guys, Merry Christmas. Now how do I get back to cloud city…I’ve had so much tequila and dry ice. It hurts!!! It hurts!!!
Is Mike also that guy on the left? It looks like James Dean.
Gotcha! I just pulled stills from Rebel without a Cause and Star Trek the Motion Picture.
So if it’s an attempt at a William Shatner impression, then it’s perfect.
I figured he’d just seen it before. He’s an ex-professional movie critic, isn’t he?
I clicked on this and it’s an adaptation of a Flannery O’Connor story?! I have to watch it now…
As you are free to do Paul:)
I thought he said that in character.
Hey, would love to get a reply from you guys about this..What do you guys think about the movie K-Pax?
It’s so dense. Every single image has so many things going on.
Are those 10 differences measured in lbs?
You can’t spell ‘analysis’ without ‘naly’.
Of pure awesomeness
It’s crazy. Or maybe not….
Yes, “It’s pronounced ‘jif’, NOT ‘gif'”; is what he literally said. It was at the webby awards and when he said it it felt a bit like the second coming of christ.
So I have to ajree with the parent poster here that joing ajainst the words of the inventor is just futile. So jo ahaid and take those hands off the keyboard.
It exists.. unlike that film ET
I’ll just wait for the JJ Abrams reboot: ‘Lens Flare – Into Yuletide’
Ooh, that still is from Mike’s “A couple of the kids just don’t wake up” joke. Not since History or the World Part 1 has comedy been captured on film so precisely.
Also, if you watch closely, he has this one lined up just before Mr. Rich Evans laughs himself off of the set.
I totally lost it with the giant dancing dolls… so so funny guys. Keep them coming, I think a New Year’s Best of the Worst is needed.
To be more cool ?!
No costume for the Halloween party and a costume for the Christmas party. Sounds about right.
I see this in my nightmares….and my fantasies…
i can see it!
I’d totally watch a movie called Grizzly Adams vs. the Dry Ice King of Mexico.
It’s the curse of the WOLF!
I heard that Dan Haggerty was high on cocaine while filming Elves. I can see that.
This episode totally went full Griswold.
So glad there’s more people from México who enjoy RLM. And no, I didn’t watch the stream, but I wish I had!
Sadly no, that was just a hodgepodge of “magical” stuff created by the filmmakers, I assume…
Despite explaining our Santa (in México) is pretty much your Santa, I forgot to mention one detail: Santa isn’t much of a thing in most of the country.
While Santa brings the presents on Christmas in the north of México (the states that border with the US), it’s the 3 wise men who bring the presents on January 6 in most of our country.
“The more you know”
The Führer of the Master race ,Adolf Hitler belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1 “Human Y-chromosome DNA”. Which is by origin not Indo-European,but rather associated with Afro-Asiatic speakers like Jews or Africans .
Hitler’s Bronze-Age ancestors probably looked like this.
Okay, that crazy laughing fit almost makes up for the serious lack of Jay in this episode. ALMOST
this is one of the worst things I’ve things in years. It’s worse than.. what’s the name of that movie again?
Where did they get Hitler’s DNA?
Some boys in Brazil.
Matty Simmons (the man behind) “Christmas Vacation 2: THE DOG FARTS!!” was a producer of the original “Animal House” and was an editor of the 1970s “National Lampoon” magazine….Jesus, that guy has slipped.
Rich we have to watch the movie!!!
Relatives of the Führer were tracked and tested. I don’t doubt the result, but the simplistic conclusion that he may have been of Jewish ancestry is controversial. On the other hand, all do-gooders were Jewish. Jesus, Trotsky, Marx and even “Hitler”. Even Napoleon Bonaparte was an E1b1b1 man…
“Hitler ‘had Jewish and African roots’, DNA tests show”
so rich evans dresses up for CHRISTMAS but not HALLOWEEN? what a hack.
Who plays the guitar? SING ME A SONG
I hope they watch more Mexican kids’ movies in the future. If nothing else, they should get ahold of the one where Tom Thumb and Red Riding Hood take on an army of monsters featuring the Hurricane Elf, a fire-breathing midget-powered dragon, the Furious Wolf, a robot, and the Child Kidnapper, who are all led by Maleficent. Seriously.
Actually, everyone should watch it. It’s fucking incredible.
He’s got an Edmund McMillen shirt!
Does anyone know what the poster means that says “I heart SC”?
Perhaps you could give us a title.
“Grizzly Adams, you don’t know how to read.”
I don’t get it. What’s she saying? What’s the joke there?
You know, you can’t just name drop MST3K and expect mod points. Put in some work. This is not /.
I would love to watch the gang do a screening of the first Christmas Vacation. That movie is golden and I’d love to hear them discussing it
he might be talking about this thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMMZQsYpdHM
they love starcraft.
Ha ha, I’m going to Stephens College.
What is muttered in the background at around 1:17? You can see them react on camera
It’s written in reverse, it stands for “I love Comic Sans”. It’s non obvious, but it’s there. also the font is comic sans, that makes it undeniable.
Never ever quote the daily mail if you want your argument to be taken seriously. They’re the British equivalent of Fox news.
I love the glare Jay gets from Jack for laughing at the chimp scene.
I think Jessi says something about putting the bow on Rich’s head
he just wishes he could grow a beard like that. mmmhm speaking of Jake’s beard I think it’s time to rub one out.
I don’t know if these responses to your question are jokes because I’m a rather humorless man, but it means “I love Space Cop.” Obviously.
Who is this Jake? Are you cheating on Jay’s beard?!
Easily my favorite BotW episode. The booze-fueled joy on display is as contagious as herpes.
Len Kabasinski cameo at 4:33
You know a film’s bad when you are stuck with a vhs release.
Think that skit was backwards…. looked like Jack was the “Oh No…” guy and Rich was the “Eh, it’s a movie” guy…. not vice versa 😛 and that scene happened right before the Rich exploding scenes which was very jarring
How is there a “neo-Nazi scientist” DURING World War II??
I mean, I ain’t read no history books, or any books in general…so maybe someone could answer this for me.
I was puzzled at first, they had a big laugh at that. After watching this again (actually like the 4th time, I do love watching BotW), I figured it out. Before that comment, they were talking about Grizzly Adam’s shitty performance, etc.. Mike and Jack were bantering back and forth: “he found out his mother just died”, “he found out he was in a movie called Elves”, “well, if you just read the script..”, “well, maybe it reads better?” So the joke is that Grizzly Adam’s can’t read a script and see WTF he’s getting himself into.
Yeah, in WWII they would just be regular Nazis.
Ha ha, you’re probably right.
You see, we once sent up a naval blockade around Cuba to stop the Russians from setting up missile launchers there. It was a little event you might’ve heard of, wasn’t a big deal, you know, but you might’ve heard of it, it was called WORLD WAR ONE! Jeez, you stupid people gotta learn your history right…
God damn you and your confounded “logic”
I thought the same thing!
the SC stands for Stephen Colbert.
Watching this BOTW is now a Christmas tradition for me. Thank you Redlettermedia!
My college sells these:
I have said it before and I will say it again…watching these guys, I don’t know where the script ends and the improvisation begins
And does anyone else think that the Satan character looks like Scott Ian from Anthrax?
I think it’s very well edited improv. If you think about it, editing is key for almost all of their stuff.
The only Mexican kids movie I can think of is Luis Bunuel’s Los Olvidados, but I don’t think Rich Evans will be doing his trademark laugh as much. Except over the end credits perhaps.
HOLY SHIT! I am never watching BOTW on my lunch break again. When they started talking about waking up to find the movie and the make up, and the kids. Goddamn, Rich and Jess had me crying with laughter. Oh Redlettermedia where have you been all my life.
I don’t think Santa Claus vs The Devil is racist at all, yeah that’s a stereotypical portrayal of African children, so? that doesn’t make it racist. They’re not actively trying to undermine Africans and equality between different races. It would like saying cowboys are racist; and they aren’t. Even if someone might be offended by stereotyping that does not make it racist.
Unintentional Jay & Jack shipping is happening in chat
It’s about Jay, clearly.
So what you’re saying is that Mexican Jesus is actually Santa Claus?
Watch an Indian movie with a white man in it, and prepare to be offended…
I doubt I’ll get offended to be honest but even if I were to be offended by their portrayal of a white man that still would not make it racism. Unless they are actively trying to undermine white people it’s not racism.
So in your mind intentionally perpetuating the ignorant stereotype of
African’s just being drum banging primitives who wear animal skins and bones
doesn’t “undermine” African’s or portray them as somehow being unequal or a lesser race?
In this case the stereotyping of the different groups of children is indeed not portraying them as unequal, and it isn’t racist. Just like I don’t think portraying Americans as gun shooting cowboys is racist or shows Americans as unequal.
Neither is an accurate description of *all* Americans or *all* Africans, but it’s a good way to make clear where these kids come from and more importantly to show that Santa loves all children regardless of where they’re from.
Just how many Binding of Isaac shirts does Jack have?
MST3K did the Santa vs Satan movie. If you watch the whole movie, watch it on that show.
Portraying Americans as gun loving cowboys, and portraying Africans as primitive or savage by utilising that stereotypical look isn’t quite the same thing. But both those images seek to undermine the target in any case by boiling down an entire country (or continent in Africa’s case) to one or two traits. Stereotypes are rarely seen as a positive thing.
The gun loving cowboy is a far less offensive image than that of the primitive savage. The cowboy is often portrayed as a positive image in American culture, portraying the American spirit etc.
There’s nothing positive about the African image that’s portrayed, it’s not an equal comparison in any way, and it’s taking a hell of a lot of hand waving and mental gymnastics for you to try and make that case.
I don’t believe the intent of the film makers was to denigrate those kids by using that stereotype. But the fact is that they portrayed the children of Africa as stereotypical savages, and that is an ingrained, insidious and harmful image that continues to cause issues as part of institutional racism.
Of course because primitive or savage people that dance around a fire wearing bearskins are somehow worth less as human beings.. no of course not. Because it isn’t a negative thing. You are the one saying: “cowbow=good/primitive clans =bad” when you say: “There’s nothing positive about the African image that’s portrayed, it’s not an equal comparison in any way”
I also disagree that stereotype is an “ingrained, insidious and harmful image that continues to cause issues as part of institutional racism.” the racism is the problem, not the use of stereotypes. If like me you weren’t brought up to be a racist but to use yer brain, there is nothing wrong with natives dancing around a fire playing drums.
See, to determine whether something is racist you need to look at the intentions of the one concerned not whether you are offended or not. There is a huuuuuuuuuuuge difference between “You’re offended by what I say” and “I’m *trying* to offend you with what I say”
What a fantastic way to destroy that thing
Why is there a danish article on the wall? Next to the shelf.
Possibly because Mike was invited to the Copenhagen film festival to appear for a screening of the Star War Prequel reviews.
