Idea Channel Asks: Can You Make So-Bad-It’s-Good Art on Purpose?

Your Stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!

I spent most of this video wondering when they were going to mention Manos: The Hands of Fate, but by the end I’d realized that it doesn’t really fit the bill. Unlike other films named dropped in the video, Manos doesn’t have a cult following (independent of Mystery Science Theater 3000, that is). And I’m not even sure I could say it’s so bad that it’s good. Even with MST3k, there are only so many minutes of poorly choreographed, non sequitur, night-gowned, wife-on-wife wrestling that a person can take.

Let this video stand as reassurance to all the artists out there: if you think you might be making bad art, at least you can’t be making another The Room.
