From the youTube description box:
"The daring diary of the making of the smash hit Peeps Blow Up (1812 Overture) [links to youTube]. Narrated by the filmmakers themselves, this documentary exposes the culinary, theological, and musicological underpinnings of this groundbreaking work. Brought to you by Fly on the Wall productions."
bink is the one in the goggles--she narrated and edited this too. I'm the one eating the Peeps, and filming. We are the Powell and Pressburger of Peeps! (Maybe more like French and Saunders?)
Peeps Blow Up, The Making Of
Hannah in England asked what the deal with Peeps is. These cheap, cheerful, and much maligned sugar-coated marshmallow candies have been turning up in U.S. (and Canadian!) Easter baskets since my childhood, at least. Art L. described Peeps as the Rodney Dangerfield of holiday candy: they get no respect.
They're harmless, unless you count the poisonous dyes, the blood sugar spikes, and the American epidemic of diabetes, obesity, and teeth cavities. But I don't know that Peeps are to blame, as I'm not sure anyone actually eats them--they're not very nice. They are better, however, if you freeze them or let them sit out until they get stale and chewy.
Oh my! I just read the Wikipedia entry "Peeps" and learned they are considered practically indestructible. This must be one reason people are so attracted to testing the limits of Peeps' endurance.
