The Hothead / The Forgetter

Please choose a format above.

There are those classic arguments every kid had growing up. Superman or Batman? Twizzlers or Red Vines? And of course, the biggest fight of all, “who’s your favorite industrial accident victim type, The Hothead or The Forgetter?” Well you can set all those years of fighting aside because now The Hothead & The Forgetter are together as one!

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from years of riffing industrial safety shorts, it’s that a job in any kind of factory is basically a death sentence. There are so many exciting ways to get hurt! For example, you might be a Hothead, or you might be more of a Forgetter. One of them loses his temper too easily, while the other can’t remember stuff. Which one’s which? Hmm, I can’t seem to remember, and that’s MAKING ME EXTREMELY ANGRY!

They’re two injury-filled tastes that taste even better together, so yell at the safety goggles you forgot to put on and join Mike, Kevin, and BIll for The Hothead & The Forgetter!
