Recreating and Reviewing the Diablo Sandwich from Smokey and the Bandit

Diablo Sandwich

This past Friday marked the 41st anniversary of the release date of one of my favorite movies, Smokey and the Bandit!  To celebrate this fact, my daughter and I decided to do a video on her food review YouTube channel where we would take a look at The Diablo Sandwich.  Check out this classic scene from the movie:

The problem was, I had no idea just what the heck a Diablo sandwich actually was.  After doing some digging around on the internet, I found an awesome post on a message board where a user had broken the scene down frame by frame to try and solve the mystery of the Diablo Sandwich.  If you have time, it’s a very fascinating read.  Check out the thread:  Diablo & Doc

So armed with that knowledge, we set out to make this iconic mystery sandwich, and I think we had pretty good luck with it.  CHeck out our YouTube video review of it, and if you enjoy the vibe of the video, consider subscribing to our channel.  We have a lot of reviews up, with more coming on a mostly daily basis.

 

Watch me Teach My Daughter How to Play POG’s!

So I recently picked up some POG’s off ebay, thinking I would do some kind of video with them.  My oldest daughter showed quite a curiosity in them, so what better thing to film than teaching her how to play the game.  So we pulled them out, set up the camera, and away we went.  Check it out, and if you played POG’s back in the day, leave a comment and we’ll talk about it!

You can also check out the post from a while back about the history of POG’s here on Retro Ramblings.

 

Retro Rewind Episode 11: Retro Comic Book Ads Video

Episode 11 of my Retro Rewind show is now up on YouTube.  In this episode, we flip through an old comic book to take a look at all the cool old ads found inside.  I’ve done these type of posts here on the blog where I scan the ads and give a few sentences about them, but I thought it would be fun to try the concept in video form.  So you can watch the video below, and let me know what you think of the concept in this form.  Hopefully you like it, and if you do, please take a second and hit the LIKE button on the video, and be sure to subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss any future episodes.

 

Back When Pizza Hut Was an Experience – The Video!

One of the most popular things I’ve ever done here on Retro Ramblings was my post on how Pizza Hut used to be so awesome called, Back When Pizza Hut Was an Experience.  It has been by far the biggest attention getter, so when I thought about doing a YouTube video for the site, it was only fitting that it would be the first subject I tackled.

Now this video is a little rough around the edges as it’s my first attempt at editing for YouTube. But check it out and try to enjoy me rambling on about what I miss from Pizza Hut back in the day.
