This is maybe the most coked-up-seeming board game commercial ever made; in the shot around the 20-second mark where they’re all freaking out and pounding the coffee table it really looks like they’ve been awake for four days blowing rails and trying to muster the courage to go rob Alfred Molina’s house. Maybe it’s because of how gleefully the kids murder the clay grapes, or just the intensely colored plastic Edgar Allan Poe death machine.

My folks sat there with zits glued to their faces and fear in their eyes.The Dating Game was surely the inspiration for several other shows and today's most popular reality dating shows which tinkered with its structure to reflect the changes in societal attitudes toward sex.For instance, after choosing their date, contestants on "Love Connection(1983-99)" and "Studs(1991-93)" would return to the program to relay the details of what did happen on their date.It also includes the title sequence he did for the movie "Spy Hard", without, for some odd legal reason, the actual titles.
