Back in the late 80’s, Lorne Michaels (of Saturday Night Live fame), tried his hand at producing another comedy show, this one on Canadian TV, called The Kids in The Hall. I had much love for the Kids, but if you’ve been coming here for awhile, you already know this. One of my favorite television shows, ever.
In the mid 90’s, when the Kids in the Hall were ending their run, some of the writers of the show attempted to branch out on their own, and created a new show called The Vacant Lot. I’m not sure if they were ever on Canadian TV, or they were solely on Comedy Central (where I used to watch them), but I always enjoyed them for the 2 seasons they were on. They were kinda like “Kids in the Hall”-lite.
Anyway, by far the best thing they ever did was the skit you see below. My sincere apologies for the crappy quality of the video, but it’s a kind of obscure clip, and believe it or not Youtube only had this one version of it. It still cracks me up though….
