It was just a bunch of failed products. They could`ve used anything that isn`t around anymore. All products use marketing to try to make them seem like they`re the greatest and will be around forever. It wasn`t really funny, it was just filled with that lame crap.

It was alright. Good thing things didn`t turn out differently, or we`d all be killed by bees.

I like how they bash the internet, yet they mention Friendster and Napster before that. Anyway it was still funny.

Yeah you kind of have to get all of the references for it to be funny. Obviously segways and PT cruisers never took off. Neither did th XFL, Zima, Virtual Boy, New Coke and Coke 2, Crystal Pepsi, the Zune, Ruben Studdard, O-Town,Joey, Laserdiscs, Y2K, Hoawrd Dean, Bird Flu, the Phantom Menace or Waterworld. Those are the only things i can remember from it.

I think you have to be American to understand most of the references. Half of it was just like people talking about things they had made up because they were never even mentioned over here.

And the Beatles are NOT overhyped. >:-(

THanks, yen223, I got that part, it`s just that I`m unaware of the other overhypes. Didn`t know Rubben Studdart was overhyped, for instance.

Though in Jack Thompson`s world, we`d all be mowing each other with cars.

I liked the south park episode about SARS. "Son... there`s not much time. I only have a 95% chance of surviving this..."

I still can remember when people thought that SARS would be the plague that would end all humanity. That wasn`t the case, obviously.

@Pabasa: All those references were to things which were overhyped. I particularly liked that guys mother`s death from Ruben Studdart

I`m struggling to understand the nuances.

But apart from Joey with 13 seasons and everyone having segways and deaths from y2k, I`m failing to grasp the comedy.
