'90s Cover Band the VCRs on the Found Footage Festival, Coming to St. Louis
The Video Guide to Successful Seduction
Found Footage Festival description: Handsome folks from the '80s share their seduction tips. Plus, there's a sleazy reenactment thrown in for good measure.
Kahn says: I like the old grandpa telling me, "This is what works for me: Just be yourself." I feel like that's what you've gotta do - be yourself. Wait, was that showing me that you go up to a chick and put your hand in her blouse and you're good to go? But what about the times when you don't have a wine glass? Like, is a beer bottle acceptable? But I like her tights. She seduced me.
Stinson says: I think the bigger the rim rub, the better chance it's going to work out for you. And that was a big wine glass! I feel like when people ask about your favorite sexual encounter, you get a response like "Oh, the jacuzzi!" Come on, nothing happened in the jacuzzi. Wait, look! Yeah, you've gotta touch that nip in the restaurant. That's how you make that steak taste a little better. Do you think he ate a higher calorie meal than he normally should because he was sexually aroused?
Making of "Let's Ram It"
Found Footage Festival description: Behind-the-scenes of the sexually suggestive football music video, "Let's Ram It," by the 1986 L.A. Rams. It's all about being positive role models.
Kahn says: You know what, the Rams of that era didn't win football games, so they were like, "What we're gonna do is we're gonna focus on winning at dancing and recording songs." And they did! I mean this probably should have won them an award. L.A. had so many people who were just multi-talented. They can record music and make a movie, like Eddie Murphy.
Stinson says: Everything about these Rams were so much better [than the St. Louis Rams]: the jerseys, the enthusiasm, the hair, the moves. Where else could this have happened? I feel like L.A. was a pretty good place for this kind of stuff. That's a lot of flair and a lot of style; at that time, it wasn't openly accepted to be that stylish in professional sports. This video is like some attempt to create the "Harlem Shake," but without the Internet these guys were fucked.
The Found Footage Festival happens at 7:30 Wednesday at the Mad Art Gallery. Tickets are $12. Find more information on the Facebook event page.
