Supermarket Sweep

Each week we try to kick things off with something interesting, weird or mind-numbing. If possible we will try to hit the complete trifecta. So here we go.

For those who have yet to attend a Need Coffee Fun Fest, part of what we do is play games. They are games that might be familiar to you as they are twisted parodies of game shows that you might know and love. One game that I dream about getting somebody from this site to host is Supermarket Sweep, the game that combines the price guessing of something (like Price is Right) with a mad dash through a store grabbing stuff (like the recent UK riots). I would love to see Rox hosting this, or Rob. But I have no idea how we would stage a run through a grocery store with a cart. Alas.

Regardless, here's an episode from 1967. You'll no doubt be watching the odd hair, the terrifying fashions (even in black and white), and other such fun. But watch the faces of the contestants and their varied reactions to host Bill Malone's droning on about dishwashers and soap and soup and such.
