The reviews for “Koalas Gone Wild” are in!
Here’s a great old clip from 1993, when Siskel and Ebert played Sega’s Greatest Heavyweights with Sega Body Rings. Watching them flail around desperately trying to win would be funny enough on its own, but then there’s the fighting. Petty arguing over who played the video game better. This isn’t the only clip showing the darker side of their relationship. That was a theme of the show, as I remember. I would tune in to At the Movies just to watch them make ad hominem attacks at each other. That, and we only had 11 channels back then anyway. Ah yes, in those days I wore an onion on my belt, as was the style at the time.
Okay, that was actually a koala fight. Here’s the real Siskel and Ebert video:
Now do you see how I confused this with the koala video?
