March 28, 1979. In the wee hours of the morning, Three Mile Island experiences a partial meltdown, causing the worst nuclear accident in United States history. Schools are closed. Thousands evacuate. Uncertainty, rumor, and chaos run rampant. People wonder if a hydrogen bubble underneath the island will vaporize everything in a 5 mile radius. It’s so major that President Jimmy Carter even dons his HAZMAT suit and pays a visit!
Fortunately, the damage is quickly contained, the effects are minimal, and everything returns to normal once more.
… or DOES it…. (he said in the most menacingly and conspiratorial voice possible)
Okay, it’s been a long time since 1979 so you should to watch this refresher on exactly what happened when Three Mile Island (TMI) started to have its problems. It’s hilarious, compelling, and also completely fictional.
…or IS it… (he repeated after a brief coughing fit and a glass of water)
Be sure to watch/listen to it in glorious, new Dolby Stereo! And keep reading below the video.
Now if you liked that, considering finding out more about us here. Also here. Because this is all part of our clever plan to get you interested in our new book: Friday Night Monster Club. As the title suggests, it’s about a group of monsters who get together every Friday Night for competitive backgammon.
It’s about a group of kids who use yard sale “junk” to forge traps and weapons to fend of the bevy of bizarre beasts that come creeping on their little town of Green Haven. Their little town that just happens to be downstream from Three Mile Island. But that’s probably just a coincidence.
… or IS it… No seriously, it could be. You’re going to have to read the book to find out. And while you’re at it, be sure to subscribe to the Baddisco YouTube channel for part 2 of 2 and plenty more videos. Every like puts us one step closer to publication!
