then it fades to:


and finally, it fades again to:


FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Just simple fading to the screens, though the sizing of the rectangles is a little wonky, which is evident when each screen transitions to another.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Can be found on the beginning of RCA/Columbia tapes from the time, specifically the ones sold in black boxes with a red border. Titles include Quiet Cool and About Last Night... (1987).

Scare Factor: None.


Bumper: We see the cloud BG from the CTHV logo and the shiny gold text "ADDITIONAL FOOTAGE" zooms in to the center.

FX/SFX: The clouds and the text.

Music/Sounds: Just an announcer saying "Columbia TriStar Home Video proudly presents exciting behind-the-scenes footage immediately following this feature."

Availability: Supposedly seen on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, although some copies lack this bumper.

Scare Factor: Low.

1997, 2000

Bumper: On a space background, "MEN IN BLACK", in a stylish font, zooms in, then it disappears and "MUSIC VIDEO" zooms in as well.

Variant: On the 2000 Special Edition release, we see footage from the movie and we cut to a space background that contains the film's logo with "STAY TUNED AFTER THE FEATURE FOR" on the top and "ADDITIONAL FOOTAGE" on the bottom.

UK Variant: We see the text "Don't miss the full-length video of Will Smith's Number 1 single "MEN IN BLACK" at the end of this video" on a black background.

FX/SFX: The text zooming in (the 1997 version), and the animation from the end of the trailers (the 2000 version).

Music/Sounds: No music in the 1997 version, just a guy saying "Stay tuned for the "Men in Black" music video starring Will Smith immediately following this feature." and the closing theme for the 2000 version. The UK version is silent.

Availability: The 1997 version is the more common of the two and can be seen on the 1997 VHS of Men in Black. The 2000 version, on the other hand, is far rarer and can only be seen on the Special Edition release.

Scare Factor: None to minimal for the 1997 version because of the fact you get flashed by a neuralyzer directly from the movie before this bumper comes up. None for the 2000 version because it actually includes footage from the movie.

After that, it falls to make room for "STAY TUNED FOR HILARIOUS BLOOPERS AFTER THE FEATURE" fading in, except for "HILARIOUS BLOOPERS" sliding in and colored blue, with the "OO" in "BLOOPERS" zooming in and out. After that "HILARIOUS BLOOPERS" zooms in and spins away.

Availability: Rare. It appears on the original 2000 VHS release of Stuart Little.

Scare Factor: Medium.

2000 (B)

Bumper: We see clips from the movie stretching in. Then, the words "Stay Tuned" slide, then it cuts to another set of clips and we see the words "For An Exciting Music Video" slide in. Then it cuts to another set of clips with the words "Immediately Following The Feature" sliding in.

Availability: Rare, as it was only seen on the 2002 VHS of Spider-Man.

Scare Factor: Low. The white flash and music can scare some. The text shaking and the poster art zooming away on the UK variant may startle some, but it's otherwise harmless for those that are used to be seeing it.

2002 (B, UK Only)
