As we’re starting to wrap up the Canadian theatrical release of Beauty Day, I thought I’d share two new clips for those of you who haven’t had a chance to check out the film. For those who don’t know, the film chronicles the life and times of Ralph Zavadil, aka Cap’n Video. His cable access television show, The Cap’n Video Show, ran from 1990 to 1995, spawning a small but loyal cult following. Each week Ralph performed a series of idiotic and occasionally dangerous stunts, challenging the sensibilities of his small Southern Ontario audience. Now, almost 20 years later, Ralph decides to revisit the Cap’n to shoot a 20th birthday special for the very same Cable station that cancelled him 15 years earlier.
The first clip (embedded at the top of this post) features Ralph and his pal Robert shooting a skit for the Cap’n Video 20th Birthday Special. After the jump, you’ll find a second clip highlighting one of Cap’n Video’s classic skits, “Clothesline Skiing”. I’ve also revealed a brand new alternate poster for the film, designed by the amazing Ken Taylor. We’re hoping that both posters might be available for sale sometime soon. Beauty Day will air on HBO Canada starting September 19th, and will hopefully find its way outside of Canada in the near future. Now check out the rest of the content after the jump!
