Thank God For YouTube – ’80s HBO intro presents: Thank God For YouTube! Here we will showcase random, unrelated media that for whatever reason left an impact on us. In the best case scenario you will see something you haven’t seen in over 15 years yet remember like it was yesterday. Today we have…

Talk about epic.

If this didn’t get you pumped up to sit on your couch for 2 hours, nothing could. Movies felt like a much bigger deal with intros likes this. The other old school HBO intro brings back plenty of good memories as well, but those memories are more in the after-school variety, more dime-a-dozen. This 75-second intro was fucking special.

My biggest connection with this is probably Superman II, which my parents taped off HBO early on. The connection is certainly an easy one, what with the sequence ending in space and Superman II beginning in it.

For more on ’80s nostalgia and the Superman movies, stay tuned to the next 2 episodes of 300 Bucks Damage!

    Believe it or not, this intro was on my BACK TO THE FUTURE tape — so I sort of associate it with that, but I remember it vividly as being part of any HBO movie… great find, Kev

    It always reminds me of the opening of Beetlejuice. I guess that was the first movie I watched on HBO back in the day.

    I freakin love Beetlejuice. Always thought they should have made a sequel. One of Michael Keaton’s best roles next to Multiplicity. Weird to see Alec Baldwin play such a laid back character. I’m gonna go watch it now.
