ScrewAttack uncovered a bizarre PSA from the early 90s

ScrewAttack uncovered a bizarre PSA from the early 90s photo



Hop into your time-traveling phone booth and go back to the early 90s, when pastels and neon were all the rage and Hulk Hogan was still a real American who fought for the rights of every man. The boys at ScrewAttack were doing just that when they stumbled upon a strange commercial on an old VHS recording of the Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style TV movie. It's got surfer lingo, keytars, and a gloriously anachronistic arcade treasure trove that holds a dark secret.

Actually, it's just a skit with an all-star lineup that includes Craig and Chad of ScrewAttack, Nathan "Keith Apicary" Barnatt, Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson, and James "AVGN" Rolfe. I had a few laughs, but I guess you really had to be a part of that era to appreciate the over-the-top cheese of it all. Mad props to James, especially, for making me laugh by simply by standing around and acting like a stone-cold badass.
