Sunday Cinema – “Disneyland Christmas Parade (1980)

This month on “Sunday Cinema” we decided to get into the nostalgia of the season and look at Christmas parades from decades past. Each year the parade balloons tend to change based on the popular cartoons of the year. Old favorites are always there and of course you have musical artists singing for the crowds.

Someone filmed this with their personal VCR camcorder (which probably weighed 50lbs) back in 1980. Of course, playing with the zoom and pan features, so be careful about getting seasick watching it! Someone uploaded this

Sunday Cinema – “Hollywood Christmas Parade (1986)

Shields & Yarnell, the mime troupe, are “The Clinkers” apparently a couple of automatons traveling from California to Florida for a Christmas vacation at Walt Disney World.

Destroying a Supreme rubber ball actually made this guy money…

David Zucker says that the classic “Airplane!” could be made today but without the jokes

Be Kind, Rewind!

MattyV watched the movie, “Clerks III” over the weekend and in one scene Jay & Silent Bob return a copy of “Dental School” on VHS back to the video store. Randall & Dante calculate the late fees at $10,200 PLUS 50 cents for not rewinding the tape. Reminded him of a few customer-related things he has seen around the area lately:

  • Brand new Wendy’s location: sign on entrance & on drive-thru menu, “Please be patient, there are only 2 employees”
  • Arby’s Drive-Thru window in the same town had a “Treat employees kindly” flyer taped up in the window.
  • Medical facilities & doctor’s offices have flyers telling patients to be kind to medical employees & that abuse will not be tolerated.

While looking for a clip of the scene from “Clerks III”, I stumbled across the unaired pilot for “Clerks: The TV Show” which predates “Clerks: The animated Series”. Comedian Jim Breuer plays Randall

This article shares what a TikToker experienced as far as customer abuse

Reddit has a group about “retail hell“…
