Speaking of Toonami, the new block on [adult swim] usually airs action-oriented animation, both japanese and western. However, there are times, usually during special occasions such as Daylight Savings Time and Movie nights, where they decide to air something a little unorthodox. On August 31st, the night they aired Evangelion 2.22, they also aired the kickstarter-funded anime short Kick-Heart. On November 2nd, to fill out the extra hour from Daylight Savings Time, they aired King Star King and Korgoth of Barbaria along with a reairing of Kick-Heart.
Producer Scott Rouse sampled comedian Jeff Foxworthy's "redneck" jokes with a musical backing and released it as a single called "Redneck Stomp". After it was a commercial success, Rouse took some of Jeff's other material and gave it a musical backing, often adding an appropriately themed chorus sung by a popular country artist or session vocalists. (For instance, "Games Rednecks Play" takes snippets from that album's routine about the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and adds a chorus sung by Alan Jackson.) Many of these "songs" were compiled into Crank It Up: The Music Album, which also included a couple regular standup routines and the "Redneck 12 Days of Christmas". Rouse also sampled Bill Engvall's work in similar fashion in later years, most notably his "Here's your sign" jokes, getting him a Top 40 hit with "Here's Your Sign (Get the Picture)" (chorus sung by Travis Tritt) and "Here's Your Sign Christmas" (chorus sung by session vocalists).
Speaking of Jeff Foxworthy… each of his albums ends with "You might be a redneck" jokes except Have Your Loved Ones Spayed or Neutered, which instead ended with a skit called "I Believe", featuring Larry The Cable Guy.
Brent Douglas and Phil Stone, creators of the Prank Call character Roy D. Mercer, released many of their calls on CD compilations. (The first seven were titled How Big a Boy Are Ya? vols. 1 through 7, after which they Stopped Numbering Sequels and gave subsequent albums their own names.) While most of the discs are nothing but the calls served straight-up, a few of them broke from that pattern:
