On this episode, we watch one of the most un-creatively named documentaries we’ve ever watched for this podcast.
You know what? Screw it. Cue the orchestra.
Turmoil has engulfed the world of TWINE BALL rollers.
For a generation, Francis and Frank, two twine ball rollers of noble ambition, have battled for the distinction of creating THE WORLD’S LARGEST BALL OF TWINE.
Upon Frank’s passing, his Kansas home town relocates the ball to the town square and uses an army of people and spools of store-bought twine in an attempt to seize the WORLD RECORD and create an attraction even more fun than a murder house. But are they building a bigger ball, or are they building an obese POKEMON?
When Francis dies years later, his nephew will also donate their ball to his home town. Unsure whether the town truly wants the ball and hoping to resolve the matter, EDWARD from Ripley’s Believe It or Not will travel to rural Minnesota and experience the darkest day of his life. He will emerge scorned and full of spite, ready to hate-buy an inferior ball of twine rolled more by machine than man.
When you think you've seen it all, this documentary will have you believe there are three balls of twine. But no! There is another…
Guest starring Weird Al, 9/11, a very questionable method for weight loss, and old fashioned American values like arson and censorship.
We’re suffering through and reporting back on The World’s Largest Ball of Twine, available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
