When we created our historic box sets we included some “easter eggs” hidden within the menu navigation structure. These were meant to be found either by accident or by determined individuals with hours and hours to kill searching every possible button combination. Amazingly all these have been found now, most notably by Anthony Napolitan who posted some up on his Instagram account in early 2017.
So here they all are. If you own any of the box sets you just unlocked some new content to watch!

During the course of creating all the original artwork for the Props Box Set, we asked artist Eben Fischer to re-up an iconic sketch Taj Mihelich drew for the Best of 1997 VHS sleeve from nearly 20 years ago. We didn’t know what to expect from Eben, but were completely blown away by what he came back with.
This drawing is spread across the back covers of the 2 Blu-ray cases and the image is completed when the cases are put side by side.
Eben has little hidden details all throughout the different pieces of artwork he created for this project. For example, in his drawing above, the frame of the Bike Monster is a Taj. All 10 stickers from the Box Set sticker sheet are stuck on the TV.
When he designed artwork for the 5 discs in the set, he made the obstacles spell letters. They spell PROPS when put in a row.
We just added a new “Pay with Amazon” feature to the checkout process. Use your already existing Amazon.com account to quickly pay and skip entering in your payment info all over again. Look for the gold “Pay with Amazon” button on the cart or checkout pages.
We also added a SSL certificate to better secure the site.
Check out this nice little article by ESPN’s Brian Tunney about the Road Fools 1 re-mastering that’s going on! If you didn’t hear, we’re finally going to be releasing a complete Road Fools box set on Blu-ray with all the videos, RF 1-18 and the 2 Rock and Roll Tours.
Since the only master of the original Road Fools 1 is on analog S-VHS, the video is undergoing a complete re-edit and re-mastering from the source DV footage tapes to produce a native DV master for the box set.
We’re also putting together a Road Fools book, which will be available as a traditional coffee table print book and also as an interactive digital iBook version that will be available for download on iPads. All coming this year!
