Handball – 5pm!

In 2001 we started using the Phudie Mart short as an intro video to a sketch we called “Handball”.

In 2001 we started using the Phudie Mart short as an intro video to a sketch we called “Handball”. It was a sketch where Brent Wickerman (the man dumped at the McDonalds in the short) is now managing the McDonalds. He has a young prototype at Mickey D’s who he sees as the future and as a competitor. He wows him with stories and then ultimately invites him to play handball. We do a Danger Zone slowmotion/fastmotion handball sequence. Wickerman loses, but gains respect…in a funny way. We did this sequence in NYC in 2001 and it worked out pretty well. Johnny Bolger was in the group at that time and did a nice turn as the worker. The best line of the sketch? Wickerman: Hey, if you aren’t doing anything on Saturday, why don’t you come with me down to the Chain of Lakes for a boat party. The bass player from Oingo Boingo is gonna be there. Make sure you get a tetnis shot.
