My buddy Mike from my old cast sent me this, I owes wounder how the drugs were in the '80 now i know.
I used to have this on vhs, but I lost it years back. Anyway, a sketch
show in the 80's called "Fridays" did an 18 minute long, politically
themed parody of Rocky Horror. Someone has posted it on youtube. Go
watch it. Trust me, it's worth the 18 minutes! You can still hear
lines at Rocky that originally came from this sketch.

Wow, that's actually a good copy of it too. I've only seen it as like an eight-generation dub that was so bad it was practically in black and white. I never actually saw Fridays on the air (a bit too young for it at the time). A number of people have inquired about a DVD release of it over the years, but apparently Michael Richards was the only cast member to have explicit home video rights approval in his contract. And he's never approved a release. Additionally, that particular episode was supposedly never rebroadcast due to legal issues. Rumor is that Lou Adler was unhappy at the time about the parody being done without asking 20th Century Fox for permission.
