Background

Abso Lutely Productions is the company of surrealist comedy duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Although the company is spelled "Absolutely" in their logo, they are often referred to as "Abso Lutely" (even by Tim & Eric themselves, if their Twitter account is any indication) due to how it is pronounced and to differentiate it from another company with that namesake.

(June 5, 2006-)

Logo: On a black background, we see a home video (from VHS) of a shirtless man (who looks a lot like Don Johnson with a mullet) wearing a pink hat in the middle of the screen, with the time stamp "JUN, 28 1991" in the bottom right-hand corner of the box. He turns to the camera and says the word "Abso...lutely!". As he says the word, the pink text "ABSOLUTELY" pops up part-by-part below the box.

Trivia: The man in the home video is the father of Tim Heidecker. His "Abso...lutely!" quote comes from a then-15-year-old Tim asking him to sum up his vacation in 2 words.

Variants:

  • A still variant of this logo popped up at the end of Tim & Eric's Billion-Dollar Movie, with the extra word "FILMS" below "ABSOLUTELY".
  • On The Eric Andre Show episode "Bird Up", Eric Andre appears instead of Tim's dad.
  • On The Eric Andre Show's final episode of season 2, the logo is glitched with the "Abso...lutely" being played multiple times, sort of a parody of the YouTube Poop video compilations on its respective site.

FX/SFX: The man in the video moving, the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: The man's voiceover and some hissing in the background (attributable to the VHS tape the footage was sourced from).

Availability: Common. First seen on the season 2 Tom Goes to the Mayor episode "My Big Cups", and on almost every single show from and/or co-produced by Tim & Eric ever since, such as Nathan for You, Tim & Eric Awesome Show Good Job!, Check It Out! with Steve Brule, Comedy Bang! Bang! and much more.

Editor's Note: This is a funny logo, and a favorite among Tim & Eric fans.
