Supposedly, this is part one (part two after the jump) of a 1995 corporate training video made by pre-South Park Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Universal comissioned the video, so the story goes, after the studio was bought by Seagram’s and wanted to reassure people that, despite their new ownership, they would remain artist friendly.
The story sounds fishy to me, because in 1995, I don’t know what the studio would’ve had to go on besides Cannibal the Musical and an animated short Parker and Stone made in college – both of which would’ve been clues that Universal would get what they supposedly got: a really funny video they couldn’t use. Then again, movie studio execs are notoriously stupid.
Anyway, regardless of the real story behind it, it has cameos from Sly Stallone, Michael J. Fox, Brian Grazer, Demi Moore, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Angela Lansbury and your mom. Ha, just kidding about that last one. Unless your mom is Angela Lansbury.
