Of all the 1982 softball videos that come across our enormous obsidian comedy desk, the following is by far the best one.
Unearthed by John Candy’s wife Rose, the video features the cast and crew of SCTV playing a softball game in Edmonton and generally joking around. Rick Moranis takes the role of roving reporter with help from Dave Thomas as the pair interview John Candy, Eugene Levy, Joe Flaherty, show writers and more.
We were going to write a more substantial intro with the complete history of SCTV as well as a frame-by-frame analysis of the video but while watching it we felt every emotion possible and need to relax for a bit.
