Listen Nick Preuer and Joe Pickett celebrate bad video
For the last 15 years Nick Preuer and Joe Pickett have scoured garage sales, thrift shops, and even garbage cans looking for bad videos.
They edit the worst examples together to present their "Found Footage Festival." Together they narrate an evening of ill-considered video. The festival draws sell-out crowds wherever it shows.
They'll present the latest festival tonight in the Twin Cities. Preuer and Pickett told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr it all began with a video Preuer found in high school.
