Three Riffer Version Now Available!
« on: January 20, 2009, 08:13:42 PM »
http://www.rifftrax.com/rifftrax/reefer-madness-three-riffer-edition



Now that marijuana (aka "reefer", "bud", "stick", "whoopie doopie", "happy grass", "tingle weed", "Abe Lincoln", "the halt", "muffin", "chew", "altoid", "the Fonz", "little Ricky", "sleestack", "chumba wumba", "red dynamite", "the oaf", "fat man", "little boy", "Richard Milhouse Nixon", "Area 51") has been eliminated as a scourge, it's interesting to go back and look at the film that was almost singlehandedly responsible for its demise. Yes, Reefer Madness let the world know that even a single dose of marijuana (aka "whip scorpion", "Batman", "Holyfield vs. Lewis", "the Kremlin", "babelfish", "Mason Reese", "chowhound", "slab bacon") caused insane laughter, enhanced skill at ragtime piano, the inability to avoid hitting old men with your car, and defenestration.

Mike, Kevin and Bill light up...THE STUDIO to take on Reefer Madness.

Note: We consider this a brand new RiffTrax as it is vastly different from Mike's previous solo take. Available in MP3 and VOD!

Any chance of getting a .RIFF edition of the three-way commentary, or does the availability of a VOD regrettably preclude that?

So, will ANY other copies of Reefer Madness work with this?  I have the Legend Films version, bought it when it first came out, but its in storage on the other side of the country.  I really don't want to have to buy the VOD version but I tried syncing the riff to a downloaded copy from archive.org and it just isn't working.

The true answer has to be "we don't know."  Since the movie is in the public domain, there's no way to test every version.  When we first started out, we were going to release the original commentary track, like we did for NOTLD and Plan 9, but scrapped it because it didn't match up with the version we found on Google Video. 

Since the copies of the movie can come from anywhere, that's why we put on the product page: The audio commentary is only guaranteed to work with the Legend Films edition of Reefer Madness (available by clicking the "Get the DVD" button on the right.)

It probably isn't worth trying it out with other copies of the movie.

Well, I bought a used version for 5.98 on the same link, so I HOPE it's the same Legend Films version.. :scared:

This is the funniest god damned riff I've ever heard.  I wonder if I'd laugh more if I was stoned?

Haven't tried that in over thirty years.  Maybe I saw this movie and learned an important lesson? :-\

Just downloaded the VOD versions (mp4, DIVX and mpg) and I have one question that I should know, but sadly I dont!

The "high quality" mpg version, if I just burn that on a DVD as a data file, will that play in my DVD player hooked up to my TV?    Is there some sort of conversion that must be done first?

Thanks all.

I am sure you would, but I doubt you'd know what you were laughing at.

We are actually still working on it... so you can either not wait for it and get the VOD version instead, or buy the audio version now and wait for the .riff to get added to your account once we put it on the site :)

If I'd have read the 1st page, I wouldn't have bought the .mp3 and movie on Amazon :-[

BUT, I went ahead and payed the $9.99 so I can make a DVD version AND have a copy on my BlackBerry Bold :highfive:
