Good god, I don't know how anyone could keep a straight face staring down Ekkebus in that wiggling white beard... I'm amazed there wasn't spontaneous combustion with laughter, lol.
Both the documentary and the Sidequest podcast reeeeeeeally lay it all out though. Watching the blogs never really gave us an idea as to just how insane the whole shabang was. But damn it all, I wish cameras had been rolling when Steve collapsed in the Swamp Monster costume, lol.
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.
