Blow wheels, Jac, blow wheels!

Jac Mac and Rad Boy Go! Speaking, as we were, of the late great Night Flight, here's another classic of the era. Written, directed, and "starring" Wesley Archer, who later worked on The Simpsons and King of the Hill.

Holy fuck! I haven't seen this in ages. They showed this on Liquid Television, too.

Thanks!

It seemed subversive at the time. Now I just feel old.

Think the creators of "Beavis and Butthead" ever saw this?

Excellent! I've been wanting to see this again for years, but I couldn't remember the name. Thanks, schoolgirl report!

Trivia: In the "Academy"* episode of Max Headroom: The Series*, portions of this short appeared in the jammed broadcast montages.

*Sadly, video in the AOL links are XP compatible only.

To this day, I still use the phrase "Blow wheels Jac!" No one ever knows what the hell I'm talking about, but I never let that stop me.

I thought this WAS by the creator of beavis and butthead.

Ultimately, it was rejected as the first "Coffee Achievers" commercial.

Before there was the interweb, I'd stare at NightFlight for four hours on a Friday night. Thanks!

Nope. While Wesley Archer worked on "King of the Hill", a project of Mike Judge who did create "B and B", Archer had nothing to do with "B and B", at least in anything I have been able to find.

Wonderful. I remember tripping on this when it first came out. I saved it to VHS and would watch it from time to time just to get things going again.
