    I still say 1989, but the only other date that was thrown around was 1992. This was definitely pre-Smash; The Offspring album was the one they were trying to promote. It's labeled as being from 1989 on the DVD, just for the record.

    Sorry for bumping this thread but I saw that there was a discussion as to when exactly this was recorded. The VHS/DVD says 1989, someone in the audience says 1992 and in an interview with Dexter in 1998 he believed it was taped in 1991: http://www.angelfire.com/ok/yayayaya...ard111398.html

    I guess we will never really know

    I'm Australian, so having seen the clip with no knowledge of what a "Wally George" is when it's at home, the vibe I got was like this:

    Mr. George was a die-hard ridiculous conservative, who took his show very seriously, but the producers and other staff, played him for laughs without his knowledge. that's why all the kids in the punk rock shirts were booing the band and cheering when he smashed the record, they were in on the joke.
