of this video piece occurred in the mid-70s when the Six Characters (who,
at the time, were called the Hot Buttered Love Biscuits) went on
a “heroic journey” sabbatical with the late author-turned-guru-turned-dead-guy
Terence McKenna. Dr. McKenna was expounding on his theories of mathematical
unification when his head spontaneously turned into a Danish-speaking
hamster. As Kym struggled to keep all the bugs off her skin, she had an
idea that would turn the comedy world on its ear.
years later, Kym remembered that idea and flung herself out of the third

on science experiments with Twinkies.
“Sure, we lost Bolton,” said Seth at the time.
“But I’ll bet you didn’t know that Twinkies are an effective
replacement for seat-cushion flotation devices on airplanes. If that’s
what you call ‘ruining a great project’ then you can just
call me Kevin Costner.”
With only $14 to their name (and an excess of 40,000 Twinkie
wrappers), Six Characters decided to plow ahead with their labor of love,
even though no one really remembered why they were doing it in the first
And the film you see before you is the result of their
epic toil. Watch it with someone you love… Or at least someone you
like… Unless you’re a Republican… In which case you
probably don’t like anyone.
