Dank Dank : I'm beginning to feel like a rap god....

Gloom Shift : "Why are the only funny lines on this show the ones behind me?"

JackisJack : "You know...People can be really nasty. Only the other day I heard someone say, "he's nothing but a robot, covered in make-up." What a way to talk about the president of America." I laughed so hard.

Zed C : Is he running on windows 98?

rlrsk8r1 : "How can we make this guy in a plastic suit and makeup look like a computer-generated guy from the future?" "We'll just make the audio skip and loop." --The most clairvoyant men in the world.

When Will You Learn? : Is this the origin of YTP?

Shinobi Wolf : "The only funny lines on this show are the ones behind me." Classic.

Cody Cullum : So few people noticed that behind the crazy editing skills and amazing artistic design, Max Headroom was one of the best satirists of his time, and covered more controversial topics than almost anyone in the 80's. This guy was amazing....and then he got a tv show and a movie that completely threw all of that out.

DominatorGaming : The 80s sounded so fantastic...

UltrawomanLiz18 : Y'all kids need to understand that the idea behind Max was grappling with a tech revolution. In 88 (or whenever) WWW hadn't even been written yet and though we knew the future was in cyberspace nobody knew what that was. This was a pretty big deal historically. Sampling was new, remix didn't exist yet, this was the bleeding cutting edge. Don't taunt Sumerians over primitive writing and don't dis Max Headroom. He came true.

Critias : This is Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-Max-MAX-MAX-MAX-MAX-MAX-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-MAX MAX MAX MAX-Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma-MAX Max Headroom.

Kailash : me and my mates used to impersonate him in school, thank god there were no smart phones about back then :p

Johann Gaius isiNwinga Zulu Ahuitcoyotzin Hirohito : This isn't funny, but rather very creepy.

patronsaintofpoison : Your love is fading

Sightseeing : How'd they do it? With makeup. I'm not kidding.

magikoopa : Is this suppose to be entertaining???

CoolestCorpseOnTheBlock : Anyone else see the subliminal messages?

josoverthehill : When computer graphics were new and exciting. I remember being AMAZED... asking myself, "How do they do that!!!!!????" And wasn't it a COMPLETE bummer to find out that it wasn't computers at all, but just freaking MAKEUP?? I know I was disappointed.

maxheadroomukarchivestm1987 : "he's nothing but a robot. covered in makeup. talks a lot of nonsense. what a way to talk about the president of America"

Forgetful Hatter : I just witnessed a fake ai stutter his name for 10 seconds and i loved every second for it.

StaticSnow : is this vaporwave

thaibu : Always thought Jim Carrey emulated Max Headroom.

M’aiq the Video Critic and All-Around Good Guy. : "My brothers wearing the other one...... Its dirty!"

MallarRallam : This looks like the very first YouTube Poop.

Orion : This shit was way before its time, i wish i was alive to expience this time period....i know i know, we are living in history as we speak, but there is just something about the 80s, its been ingraned in Americas head as this time....i don't know how to explain

Purple Dinosaur : Am I the only one terrified of max headroom

PazuzuStalker : I remember this from back in the days... Extremely stylish, graphic and cool! Was kind of about that in the 80s. Miami vice etc. JR pouring his scotch... It was about style, looks, images and poses. The Vibe! You could almost taste it... Humor? Serious stuff? Nah! If you wonder about stuff like that you weren't there.

Icon Of Sin : I don't know about anyone here but I think he looks pretty real for an AI made in the 80s. The only thing that looks fake is his suit however.

nickpower03 : If you watched this on acid.. oO

coyoteroadkill : This show predicted the future so accurately! In the age of video tapes, Max's jumping around and stuttering foretold the annoyance of a scratched DVD.

Joe H : So he was basically Jim Carrey before we all knew who Jim Carrey was.

Ralof Of Riverwood : At least he has better hair then Trump

southsider 35 : Because of the pirating incident in 1987, I can`t look at him and think of when I saw the incident on WGN. I had to sleep with my dad that night. I was 7 years old, but my birthday was only 8 days away.

Sparky Marie : I'm shook, what the hell did I miss in the 80s.

Xavier Corteville : Six minutes, Six minutes...

Matt Younger : does anyone know the song around the 1:48 mark?

SmegPod : most of it wasn't actually cgi it was just a guy made up to look like cgi, cut up and edited

Limelines : Listening to Max slaughter german was just so goddamn amusing. At least I as a german was able to understand it XDD "UND DER OBER BRACHTE MIR... EINE.... SUPPE! *hysterical laughing for no reason*"

ErnieTheGreatest : the original YTP

Barrett Lewis : 5:05 you can hear the crew laughing (over the ping pong game they seem to be playing)

Daehawk : Matt Frewer is an acting genius. I loved Max when I caught it in the 80s new. I was a teen and it was perfect for a tech guy. People used to wonder if it really was a computer lol if you can believe that. I didn't catch it a lot being active and discovering girls but loved it. My step mom ruled the VCR so I couldn't record it. It wasn't until I saw him in Star Trek The Next Generation that I found out who Max was.

Natalie D. : "Why are the only funny lines on this show the ones behind me?"I DIED

sparkdetect : Max Headroom For President!
