In 1993, Dungeons & Dragons manufacturer TSR released the role-playing board game DragonStrike, which was designed to introduce D&D to a wider audience. DragonStrike came with this unintentionally hilarious instructional video. It's the best of the worst of video ephemera.

The 33-minute DragonStrike tutorial video featured extremely Nineties computer animation, hammy acting, and cornball fantasy dialogue. Furthermore, all of the characters refer to each other by their classes (i.e., "Refrain from disturbing his personal effects, Thief! At least before he is dead!"), which makes the story all the more leaden. Recommended in a group setting.
