Your Weekly Dose of Classic John Candy Era SCTV

No, we’re only kidding, we’ll try and not make this a weekly thing (after all, we hate Youtube clogged blogs as much as the rest of you) but after last week’s reminder of SCTV’s brilliance we thought it was well past time to revisit SCTV’s glorious take on early 80’s Yonge Street in Garth and Gord and Fiona and Alice. See! Sam the Record Man! Observe! That store that still sells bongs, posters and t-shirts! And marvel! That that bit of Yonge Street hasn’t changed all that much! (Maybe a bit less neon? We guess they need that energy now to power everyone’s favourite eyesore, Yonge/Dundas Square.)
Ahem. Anyway, be sure to watch part 1 too, because John Candy’s Maritimes accent is genius.
