The same year they made that short, the trio also made a little five minute Super 8 extravaganza titled Attack Of The Helping Hand!, a spoof of Hamburger Helper commercials that were airing at the time. Naturally, given their love of horror movies, the guys turned the iconic white gloved smiley face Hamburger Helper mascot into an evil villain, terrorizing a young woman in her kitchen. Directed by Spiegel, lensed by Bruce & Sam and starring Sam as a milkman, the short would end up finding its way into Evil Dead 2, with Ash's evil possessed hand clearly being foreshadowed in it.
