I absolutely love the library music that plays during the beginning of Century 21 Calling. I sing it to myself sometimes. No I’m not crazy! You’re crazy!

Once Upon a Honeymoon sets us up for unrealistic expectations, which is why I picked it. Pick up the phone and you’ve got a remodeled home? Yes please! But not the twin beds. Yikes.

Once Upon a Honeymoon is pretty much just an infomercial, but it’s so over-the-top and framed as a full-on stage revue, it gets my vote.

I actually learned a couple features my phone has to offer thanks to the Century 21 riff

Had to go with “Once Upon a Honeymoon”. I’m a fool for musicals.

Once Upon a Honeymoon is such a fun short. Singing, dancing, and suppressed sexuality.

Century 21 Calling was great, but Once Upon a Honeymoon was comedic brilliance. It helped that the short was so damn weirder and more surreal than Century 21 Calling, and the MST3K gang capitalized on that weirdness so brilliantly.

Red is my favorite color so I hope they threw in the ensemble as well. :+1:

It kinda amazes me that these shorts think God cares about telephones and bread.

Specialty breads!

We don’t know if He’s really in on the bread business. Those are clearly just independent contractors who took on a side project without authorization from the Central Office.
