Waxy's Bandwidth Blowout #1: Heat Vision and Jack

Starting this month, I’ll be burning through all my leftover bandwidth by posting large videos and audio on my site toward the end of every month. It’s Waxy.org’s Bandwidth Blowout!!

First up, the best TV pilot you’ve never seen: Ben Stiller’s Heat Vision and Jack from 1999. Jack Black stars as Jack Austin, an astronaut on the run from NASA after a solar accident makes him the smartest man in the universe. Owen Wilson plays his talking motorcycle. Produced by Stiller, who also appears in the introduction and as a strip club DJ.

Download it quick, before I change my mind.

BitTorrent: Heat_Vision_and_Jack (.MPEG, 301.25 MB)

Knowledge is power… for real.

June 27, 2004: Courtesy of Drew, here’s an early and later draft of the script.

June 28, 2004: Well, my bandwidth was blown. My server can’t handle the load, so I’m moving this to my BitTorrent tracker. It’s seeded locally, so it should be very fast. I’m looking into upgrading to a 100MBps uplink, so I don’t have to deal with this next month.


March 26, 2006: It’s a YouTube world, these days. Here’s the video.

  1. YES! been looking for this (vaguely at least) for ages.

    …BTW, I’ve got to say, it feels odd actually using up someone’s bandwidth *deliberately*.

  2. Good man!!

    Once I’ve got them all down Ill create a bittorent for them to allow them to continue past your bandiwdth dump – nice one.

  3. I kiss you! I kiss you on the lips!

    Something which you might not perceive as entirely pleasant, I realize, but is meant with the best of intentions. I am on a business trip with a new naked laptop, and have automagically connected to the wireless network here at the CorpoHeadQuarterAccomoFacility, and this is preeeeecisely what I need to make my lonely minibar drinks more funner.

    I kiss you again.

  4. Wow, what a ridiculously great show. It’s a shame that there’s no channel on television that would ever consider picking this up. What is wrong with this damned planet? Anyway, Stiller should have made a movie of this, instead of other, less entertaining projects *coughDODGEBALLcough*.

  5. Is this a gag show? Where did it come from? Just wondering, since its way too silly even for FOX.

  6. Ben Stiller’s introduction was great stuff. Moreover, I love the idea of a “bandwidth blowout” — we could do much to spread the load by getting big files out on P2P networks like this. Good work Andy.

  7. Hrm. Probably couldn’t run with the series without getting sued by Disney.

    There was an 80’s Disney TV movie where an astronaut developed super-intelligence and other abilities after being exposed to some kind of space-gas. Sunlight triggered the effect – depending on how much light he got, his eyes would change colour from blue to yellow to red. Blue was an OK stage – he got super-bright but that’s about it. Yellow was harder on his system, and I think that’s where his physical abilities (ie: super strength) began to appear. Red was bad – he had all kinds of nifty powers, but being in the red stage would take days or years off his life.

  8. really want to see this, but i think ill have to wait for the torrents..

    i dont know if your server is acting up, or my connection is, but every time one of the 100MB files gets to around 30MBS for me, it stops downloading and thinks its done.. PLus it wont resume correctly for me.. : p

    lmao

  10. i had the same problem with the D/L… would stop after about 30mb per file with no errors. However a friend of mine managed to snag them with ultra-spiffy modern tech and is currently uploading to my http://ftp... i love the modern world!

  12. Great stuff! The movie Mike K mentioned was Super Fuzz with Terrance Hill from the Trinity movies and Ernest Borgnine from Airwolf! It was called Super Snooper here in the UK and I remember it being a lot of fun. Partially dubbed too because I think it was an Italian production. Not sure if Disney had anything to do with it but maybe they distributed it in the US. A torrent of that movie would be a great follow up! Keep up the good work!

  13. It would be awesome if someone could seed this file again for those who got here late–the Torrent is suffering. 🙂

  14. Thanks so much for that great torrent. It was as good if not better than any of the six episodes of the Tenacious D show from HBO.

    Explosivo!!!!!

  15. Is anyone else having trouble downloading this? I’m new to this, but wvery torrent I try works great, except for this one. This one never gets off the ground despite having over 100 seeders. I’m trying to rule out my firewall as a cause, but since the program works for other files, I’m kind of stumped.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this.

  16. fyi – I googled “heat vision and jack” (or should it be i googled for…?) and found a couple other websites hosting the files. looked legit – but since I already had a copy I didn’t waste the time to check the files. still recommend the torrent as the way to go.

  17. Wow thanks alot maxed out at 373 KB/s so a big thumbs up to whoever is hosting this

  18. Please could somebody bring this movie: Super Snooper or Super Fuzz or The supercop from terence Hill up..!

    This is the movie where Ross Shannon is talking about ,, Realy a great movie..!

    Like Gordon P. said : A torrent of that movie would be a great follow up! Keep up the good work!

    So am I feeling..! Please make this movie the Follow UP..! THANKS.

  19. hey im having trouble getting it. i have a mac os x and i tried getting the right plugin but it doesn’t seem to work. im so confused. i really would like to see it though because im obsessed with jb.

    thanks anyway im sure it really cool

  20. Wow…. I’m downloading the torrent six months after you posted this and it is zipping.. probably the fastest torrent i have ever downloaded. thank you!

  21. Ditto, I’m looking but the BT feed seems sporadic to doa at best. Anybody willing to put it back online?

  22. THANK YOU! ive wanted this forever! you sir rule, and you too everyone seeding, ill stay omn and seed as long as possible.

  23. I have tried to DL this and continue to get errors. Not sure what the problem is, however this is the only torrent I get errors on. Any suggestions
