Godzilla Video of the Day
Talk about a blast from the past!
Back when I was a teen I remember watching MTV every year for their MTV Movie Awards.
This was an annual ritual where I would get with friends and we would see what movies won what, what cornball actors made stupid guest appearances, what skits would play before each award, etc.
Lo and behold I found this rare gem from those days, this one featuring a skit centered around Samuel L. Jackson and his adventures within the 1998 Godzilla film (with a special appearance by Christopher Lloyd).
Looking at these things now I can see just how dumb and corny they really were...but man back in the day there were something.
At least I can say this about these skits...they were still done on a very professional level.
I mean carefully integrating filmed movie scenes with scenes featuring these two actors, painstakingly utilizing as much of the same cab exterior/interior as possible, that definitely takes effort.
Take a look if you want to travel back to 1998 and see MTV before The Jersey Shore took over everything.
