I'm sure people in the 70s may have expected something like this, but this looks pretty out there in 2017.
And that comes from someone born in the 70s, man. 5 stars.

"I know all the kids enjoyed that..."
Thanks for pointing this clip out to me, Beta. I actually found this whole series looking for a different Mad Charles video from a couple years ago (footage of him on a float in a parade around 1976) that seems to be gone now, and I hadn't actually watched this part yet when I linked the first one in the Google group. I've been a Mad Charles fan for something like 12 or 13 years now on strength of his record, but video footage of him is new terrain, I always assumed the photo of him on the label of the record was just a joke.
Now I'm trying to find better audio of Mad Charles' album for sampling reasons...
It's just a single. I'm in the middle of moving but if you remind me somehow in like two weeks I could do a good transfer of my copy for you.
Awesome, thanks... I feel like the sections between the casual racism could make awesome bookends for a remix.
update - I think I found the track at youtube quality at least, should be enough to get an idea if I can do what I'm thinking with it.

Casual? This is professional-level racism if I ever saw it.
Though we can all agree that their depiction of Italians in this video is 100% objective and factually accurate, right?
If you want to consider Italians a race, then sure.
I consider them vermin.
To be fair, this is still less racist than Breakfast at Tiffany's
Also it is better on all levels.

I ithought it said "Karaoke~"
Hadn't even watched it when I posted this. So did they, apparently...

Everyone really owes it to themselves to watch parts 1 and 3 of this video, too. The human/robot sparring matches at the end of part 1 are one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and the climax of part 3 where they give Mad Charles a bunch of "real" weapons and have him face off against a "Roman centurion" complete with fake blood is pretty close (on paper it should be the highlight but those first two sparring matches win in terms of sheer flailing around and overall lack of skill).
The weird thing is, these clips have been up for years but they never used to show up when I searched for Mad Charles on Youtube, and now the film of him in a parade that used to always be one of the top hits seems to be gone.
