The teaser trailer was shown on all the morning news shows the next day so I was able to record it and watch it many times. I was aware it was playing with meet joe black but thought it was nuts that people were paying to see a trailer(like some of my friends) Didn’t remember it was also on Star Wars dot com though.

As I think I said in the podcast, I was one of the crazy ones who paid to see Meet Joe Black to see the trailer on the big screen. I couldn’t bring myself to watch Waterboy a second time.
