Video Toasters hold a special place in the anuses of every person in television in the early nineties.

Fucking things.

Make sure you take a minute to laugh at the transitions at 4:15 - 5:00.

I wanted one so bad.

Ditto, baleen. They sent me this demo for free and I must have watched it a thousand times, making sure my parents saw it a few times in the process.

Ugh. This company was in my hometown. I even recognize the channel 13 news station.

Imagine every local commercial with those effects for a good four years.
A Video Toaster Amiga turnkey system has been in my technology want list since this video came out. It still is. What I would do if I had one of these.
I'd venture these are still the most cost-effective way to get a true analog switching/FX rig.

See, that requires having spare money, which requires getting a better job. Working on it.

Fun Fact: Babylon 5 began on the Video Toaster.

I know this because my juniour high school had a Video Toaster in the multi-media lab, and the multi-media teacher was very excited about the upcoming Babylon 5 television movie premier. He suggested all of us multi media students should all watch it.

I still remember the apologetic look on his face the day after.
We had an amiga running toaster in high school. we were doing all kinds of fun stuff with animation, rotoscoping etc.

Also i think the voiceoverguy here has multiple personalities.

"Is she in Kansas or what?"
"Where else?"
"The next moment... enter... Copernicus."
"Wasn't he Polish?"
"And, voila!"

What in the hell was that about? He's politely ignoring his vaguely racist split personality.
"Paradigmmm shiftttt. Yeahhh!" Coo, coo, baby, coo, coo.
The guy(s) who created this program went to my high school.
Dana Carvey's brother worked on the Toaster, which is why Garth wears a Video Toaster t-shirt in Wayne's World.
The character of Garth was also based on said brother.

My college TV station was still using this into the mid '00s =(

Five stars for a company that would hire Ken Nordine to do their voice over.
Did you notice in the credits Mr. Nordine also has a band, The Ken Nordine Groop? Apparently The NewTek Girl (Kiki Stockhammer) also has a band, a Star Trek: TOS themed punk band.
