You use them for comedic gain!
I’ve been tasked with working on a tape transfer. My boyfriend handed me two VHS tapes and asked me to transfer the contents to my computer. I have the means to do so – a VCR and a Hauppauge HD PVR – so naturally, I was all game.
On Friday morning, I was working on blocking the commercials into sets, removing the actual TV shows from between the commercials. The goal is to have the commercials in sets so I can better ID and catalog them.
And while I was doing that, I paused the video editor, knowing that a fade to black was coming up, and well…
Oh my…what the…?
Yeah, I paused it. No, this was totally unintentional. I paused the video so I could use the slow motion fast forward to hit the exact moment it faded to black and the bumper came on. But wow, this happened. I couldn’t unsee it!
And this was actually intended, because I spotted this and couldn’t help myself….
The jokes just write themselves, as long as you get the reference.
On that startling note, enjoy your Sunday!
