Did you ever wonder what was really going on behind the scenes when you watched a video on the Edgy Veg channel? Candice and James have released an extraordinary amount of content, and in turn have an extraordinary reel of bloopers to go along with it.
Bloopers have a long and storied history most people simply don’t know about. Fortunately you don’t need the history and origin of the term to appreciate the reel itself. Bloopers are timeless and have been the star clips in shows worldwide since getting their kick start from producers Schafer and Hewat. They are in fact still widely in use today of a variety of programs.
The term “blooper” is short for “Blue Pencil”, which was the color of pencil used to cross out unacceptable parts of documents and letters by the “blue-person”. The “blue person” was an employee who had the job of redacting sensitive material from said documents. The origin of the term itself is amusing enough to incite laughter. It is unknown how many “blue people” have been employed over the years but we believe it is a notable number. Jonathan Hewat was the first person in the UK to broadcast radio bloopers. He did so on a Bank Holiday Show on BBC Radio Bristol towards the end of the 1980’s.
The term “blooper” itself was popularized in America by television producer Kermit Schaefer during the 1950’s. Schaefer produced a long-running series of Pardon My Blooper! record albums in the 1950s’ and 1960’s which featured a mix of actual recordings of errors that were aired on live television and radio broadcasts. He even went so far as to make multiple re-creations of bloopers he couldn’t find the original content for. Schaefer also transcribed many reported bloopers into a series of books that he published up until his untimely death in 1979.
The thing about Bloopers that makes them such good content is that they not only inspire laughter they show us that each and every person, regardless of who they are and what they do, makes bloopers. It is the very essence of being human. It reminds us all that life doesn’t always need to be taken so seriously. Laughter is definitely the best medicine and it would be unlikely that you could watch this particular blooper reel without laughing.
Candice clearly has a flair for comedy that comes out in every video she makes. This blooper reel is really just icing on the cake, and the scene where she gets into it with the hood of her own oven alone makes it worth the watch. Here at the Edgy Veg we hope you enjoy watching this blooper reel as much as Candice and James enjoyed making it.
