recasting manos

Last Saturday, I had a table at a small local convention. I was selling these “Wives of Manos” posters. I had the following conversation with three different people:

ME: Are you familiar with Manos the Hands of Fate?


ME: You know Mystery Science Theater, right?

THEM: No. What is it?

Furthermore, when I pointed out Olivia Munn, Christina Hendrix and Aisha Tyler, they did not recognize those names. These were grown adults I was talking to, not little kids.


The folks at @Rifftrax actually got hold of some MANOS outtakes!
