Spontaneous Combustion on Google Video

DJWebb alerted me to the rather baffling fact that over 1,800 people have viewed Spontaneous Combustion on Google Video. Sure maybe all 1,800 people stopped after minute one, but really who is counting? When you type in the words “spontaneous combustion” into the Google Video search engine, the movie is ranked number 1, above South Park‘s take on the phenomenon. It even gets a respectable 3 out of 5 stars. That converts to something like 6 stars on IMDB, or maybe one of those ubiquitous 7.1’s on Pitchforkmedia.

  1. What’s weirder is that it doesn’t even have that many stars compared to alot of others.

    I have this odd feeling that the people watch it because the blurb mentions it’s “essential viewing for any serious researcher of spontaneous combustion”, and people actually believe they’re going to get a free and factual lesson in why some humans catch fire.

  2. What’s even weirder than that is that none of you fools have clicked five stars to artificially boost up our rating. I think only 2 or 3 other people besides me have rated.

  3. Far be it from me to artificially boost movie ratings. Especially on this project.

    In the words of one of Combustion’s more outspoken critics awhile back:

    “This movie sucks.”


    “That in and of itself would have been ok if the end product wasn’t a pile of steaming excrement.”

    Tough to vote for a movie like that.

    Now Kettle Kittens, there’s the real classic.

  4. Oh, what the heck!

    I’ll do it.

    I’ll do it for Rube.

    I’ll do it for the little guy out there at night in the desert cold of Tatooine.

    I’ll do it for the greater glory of Protozoic(on).

    Five stars it is!
