The Found Footage Festival brings laughs and ‘The Sexy Treadmill Workout’

Nick Pruehner and Joe Pickett

What do ferret care, yo-yo pranks and an angry Winnebago salesman have in common?

They have all been part of The Found Footage Festival, a unique blend of media mayhem and stand-up comedy that features quirky video clips complemented by witty commentary courtesy of hosts Nick Pruehner and Joe Pickett. 

Ferret care!
Movies on a Big Screen (MOBS) is partnering up with Sacramento State’s Hornet Film Society to host the festival in what is certain to be a laugh-out-loud sort of night at The Hinde Auditorium on Thursday, Dec 13 at 7 p.m.

Pruehner and Pickett got their start in Wisconsin back in 1991 after stumbling upon a discarded McDonald’s training video entitled “Inside and Outside Custodial Duties.” Since then they’ve pilfered through piles of videos at thrift stores, garage sales, in warehouses and wherever else one discards their unintentionally hilarious footage. 

This may not be the pair’s first stop in Sacramento, but they’ve got fresh new content in tow. New clips featured in this year’s program include but are not limited to:

– “Hand Made Love” out of Vancouver
– Footage of a woman so stoked on craft sponging that she “borders on psychotic”
– “The Sexy Treadmill Workout”

You had me at “craft sponging.” Buy your tickets here, and click quickly – these two know how to fill a room.
