Yuk, Yuk, Yuks TV

Yuks TV. Sounds like a comedy channel, but it’s actually a 24/7 stream filled with public domain movies like The Terror, Swamp Women The Blue Angel, Werewolf in a Girls’ Dormitory and The Wild Women of Wongo.

But why does the channel’s logo (pictured below) resemble a soy sauce label?

Could it be because the channel is actually a branding mechanism for Soyracha Hot Chili Soy Sauce?

Definitely not, since we don’t think there really is such a sauce. Instead, Soyracha — like Yuks TV — seems to be the brainchild of comic Daily Pike.

On the other hand, Yuks TV itself is quite real, boasting “a library of hundreds of films [and] TV shows, all edited to 1280 HD with enhanced audio.” There’s even one original program, A Dragon Show, co-hosted by “Prop Guy and the Soyracha Dragon,” which Yuks TV said is also running on Periscope ‘s Soroycha TV.

We can’t vouch for that, but we did find a two-year-old pilot:

On Soyracha Dragon’s YouTube page, meanwhile, we found this prophetic 2016 video, Trumpopolis:

So, getting back to Yuks TV, perhaps the joke’s on us.
