Showbiz Pizza Band

It's weird. I was just talking about how the band from Showbiz Pizza was so much better than the one from Chuck E. Cheese's.

And now there is a movie about it!

Here's the trailer:




I was watching an interview on Carson Daly with a man who named Chris Thrash who, after purchasing the Showbiz Pizza Rock-afire Explosion Band, taught himself to program the animatronic band to lip-sync and play in time (complete with instrument solos) to current songs. By doing so he became an enormous sensation on YouTube.

You can watch the entire interview here:




The band MGMT recently asked Chris to program one of their songs for a video. On behalf of KNAPSACKHEROES! I am quite jealous. You can check out the MGMT video here. And there are more videos here.

If you're not a child of the 80s you may not be as excited about this as I am but I figured it's interesting anyway.

The showbiz pizza band...it still haunts my nightmares today. Especially the terrifying mouse woman. Uggggh. In this article the bears are singled out as some of the worst bears ever:

I would tend to agree with this sentiment.
