Back in the late 80’s/early 90’s MTV used to not suck by having a handful of TV shows like Beavis and Butthead and The Real World, more imporantly they would also y’know PLAY MUSIC VIDEOS…a concept that’s currently lost in today’s society. One of the the MTV programs that I watched when I was little was Remote Control, a game show that incorporated funnyness with pop culture for its time. It also was the launch pad to fame for careers such as Colin Quinn, Dennis Leary, and Adam Sandler.

This past weekend the host of Remote Control, Ken Ober, was found dead at his home due to causes that are currently unknown at this time. In honor of him, I want to share an episode that I thought was definitely quite fun to watch. Enjoy

I’d like to point out that the eliminations were the only thing that were etched in my memory about this show prior to internet, mostly because they were kinda scary at the time back when I was around 4 or 5. Also, what the fuck is up with 2009 being so damn harsh on the cool celebrities?
