Delayed due to Hurricane Sandy, comedian Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett’s Found Footage Festival is finally back with a new lineup of bizarre VHS tapes rescued from thrift stores and yard sales across the country. See the latest additions to their collection of exercise tapes (who wouldn’t want to do The Sexy Treadmill Workout?), a ferret care video from 1996, and a tape of a woman with an unhealthy obsession for craft sponging. However, the true highlight of the evening might be clips from when the guys punk’d a bunch of news stations in the Midwest by sending a friend who knew nothing about yo-yos to pose as yo-yo expert Kenny “K-Strass” Strasser. The result? Some of the most painfully uncomfortable live television you’ve ever seen.
