In the capsule today…
We find a new video game with the dubious distinction of having the most ways to die! Nine different ways... including cars, rivers, alligators, snakes, and more while playing FROGGER.
We find a sketch comedy film written, produced, and directed by Mel Brooks. “History of the World, Part I” also stars Mel Brooks, who plays five roles, including Moses.
And we find a song on the radio by The Human League. Songwriter and lead singer Philip Oakey disliked the song. And when the record company decided to release it as a single, Philip demanded that a poster be included because he felt fans would "feel ripped off" by the “substandard” track. “Don't You Want Me” then went to number one, and remains the 28th-highest-selling single of all time.
