RIP Ken Ober 1957-2009

While watching tonight’s episode of The Ruins, I saw a commercial from MTV informing me that Ken Ober, the host of Remote Control, passed away. Usually these things don’t hit me hard, but this was like getting a punch in the gut. I loved watching Remote Control as a kid. This was before my parents didn’t want me watching videos of guys disrespecting women (which was probably happening back then anyway, but who knows). I even bought the NES game in college because I liked it so much. Tonight, I’m drinking an extra gin and sour mix for you Ken.

Here’s a clip from the first episode.
