The psychotic, hilarious world of Everything is Terrible! Presents DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez! (tell us you read that and didn't smile) will head to Boise for an evening of discarded VHS goodness on Tuesday, Feb. 7.
It's estimated that more than 6 billion VHS tapes pepper landfills across the globe. That's terrible. The same old Danielle Steel novels adapted to film pop up in thrift stores around the country. That's terrible. And while American society has moved from BETA to VHS to DVD to Blu-Ray, you can still find Pay it Forward in every Walmart in the country. This, too, is terrible. In fact, everything is terrible, and the VCR-loving Internet-addicts over at Everything is Terrible! know it.
In their endeavor to rid the world of all those miles and miles of VHS film, the EIT! crew members scour knick-knack shops across the nation looking for ill conceived movies with super strange scenes. They splice these scenes up helter skelter and create their own full-length films. Past creations include an old time medicine show and a stranger danger after-school special.
For DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez!, the gang has culled only dog-related found footage in a remake of Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain from 1973. After sifting through hours of flicks like Air Bud and All Dogs Go to Heaven, EIT! created a schizophrenic canine adventure. The result is a weird look at what all our collective society has done in film for (and to) pooches.
This time, EIT! is touring alongside its film for an accompanying live performance, complete with full-body mascot costumes and furry performance art accoutrements. It should be a tail-waggingly good time.
