I love when I’m crate-digging through the weird part of YouTube and stumble on something truly amazing, seen only by a handful of other people. Just now, I was looking for the redneck bar scene from 48 Hrs. and found this:
It’s the opening titles for 48 Hours of Hallucinatory Sex (originally “48 Horas de Sexo Alucinante“), a 1987 trash/sexploitation film from Brazil. (Don’t worry, the clip’s safe for work.)
Everything about this video is amazing, from the face-melting porno synth to the Amstrad-like scrolling fonts. (You can see the blinking cursor!) With the VHS warble, it sounds like an unreleased track straight off of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing… I couldn’t find any information about the soundtrack online, but would love to hear more.
The sequel to a 1985 movie called 24 Hours of Explicit Sex, the plot of 48 Hours is totally meta: a sex psychologist sees the original film and hires the original cast and crew to make her own. It’s like the ’80s porno version of The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence, where a psychopath is inspired to recreate the events of The Human Centipede using the real-life actors from the film.
The last time I stumbled on anything this funky, it was this scene from low-budget indie comedy Apple Pie from 1976, that ends with this insane 15-minute-long choreographed dance sequence set on the streets of 1970s NYC. And the music? An improvised funk jam by Hall & Oates.
This happens to me every time I go to NYC.
