2002 – Intro – “Trivia Tube”

Captain F. and Wildman holed up in a southern Milwaukee county community with Mountain Dew and Cousin’s Subs, plus a whole pile of quotes from television’s past to produce the second of the modern Trivia Intros. The quotes were easy to find and a structure of marching ahead through time was used by punctuating the segments with a ticking clock and speeches from historically known individuals. 2002 was also the year that cemented the Posse rule that a Don Knotts quote is required to be included in each intro.

Normally the producers like to use a wide sampling of backing music however, save for a small 10 second loop from a track off the Gone in 60 Seconds soundtrack; all the music in this intro is taken from the soundtrack of Run Lola Run. A second version of the intro features built-in KVSC station ids. 2002 would be the last year that station ids would be an afterthought to the contruction of the piece. All subsequent years the transition from intro to trivia announcer would feature obvious references to the merciful “end of the hype” and the “beginning” of the contest.
