a glitch is a glitch

...so, uh, this happened.

I’m watchin’ an old copy of this episode, findin’ mistakes, mindin’ my own business .

Abruptly, the video starts to get a glitchy and seriously weeeeiiiiiird. 

The screen starts to “move” without actually shifting. The audio goes all freaky. 

I’m unnerved.

AND THEN SUDDENLY TWO PEOPLE IN MEDIEVAL COSTUMES ARE PUNCHING EACH OTHER

The camera cuts to someone’s knees!

…and then Laff-A-Lympics comes back like nothing ever happened.

I… I don’t… how did someone, way back when, manage to tape over only 5 seconds of the middle of the show? 

Did they hit record, and then go “Oh, crap, wait, this is my Laff-A-Lympics tape! I’m prolly gonna need this some day!” and hit stop?

…and also, what was that show/movie with medieval punching and knees? Can anyone identify it? Can I watch that instead of Laff-A-Lympics?
