    As part of their 10th anniversary tour, Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett brought the Found Footage Fest to Louisville, KY for one Friday night at Headliners Music Hall. Upon entering the venue, just 10 minutes before show time, the room was packed, and people continued to come in.

    The show opened with some clips from avgeeks.com and featured some interesting videos. There was a musical commercial about how to use a payphone with singing women in payphone costumes. There was also a Swedish educational video about sex education for the handicapped; it was extremely awkward, perhaps inappropriate, and hilariously funny all at the same time. This was how the Found Footage Fest opened their show to hundreds of Louisvillians.

    There was so much footage and so much variety, it was ridiculous. There was a montage of exercise videos that makes you wonder, what were they thinking, while holding your stomach in laughter. Some of the gems in this collection included: butt exercises (done by males in tight running shorts), face exercises, sexual fitness, and exercise to Christmas music.

    Some of the other footage that they revealed included:  videos from a news station in Portland, OR and what their news anchors do off camera, the return of never-before-seen John and Johnny home shopping footage as well as the reunion of John and Johnny, a compilation of a reality show about rattlesnake hunters that was never aired, and a video on “whelping.”

    The show finished with a mash-up of clips from their “Chief Keith” prank that they played on several news stations. They made up a character, Chief Keith, and had him appear for interviews to talk about what can be done with Thanksgiving leftovers; there was a lot of blending of foods that should never be blended in the first place. There was so much to the show, and to truly experience it, you must sit in a dark room with hundreds of people and watch these old VHS tapes on a big screen while listening to funny commentary by two funny hosts.

    As Prueher said, this Found Footage Fest would include “things not meant to be shown in public.” Pickett added that “this [would] be the most disturbing show yet,” especially, due to the fact that they included things that they never thought they would show. Prueher and Pickett didn’t lie, and by the end of the night, there was not a single person in the room who wasn’t hurting from laughing so much.

    Thank you Prueher and Pickett for bringing the 2015 Found Footage Fest tour to Louisville, and thank you for informing us of the disease that particularly affects women, so much so, that it has sent women to jail, the disease of… “PMS.”
