When you can’t count on that expensive hog mess we call "modern medicine" to fix your funnybone, Squidbillies is there to git-r-done! And this August, Adult Swim’s got just what the doctor ordered with the release of the Squidbillies Volume 5 DVD, packed to the gills with all 10 episodes from the series’ fifth season and bonus content including Art + Music, Pete Stuff and behind-the-scenes featurettes. In this latest installment, everyone’s favorite family of inbred hillbilly squids lay out the welcome mat for special guest appearances by T-Pain, Kevin Gillespie, Jesco White, Riley Martin and Billy Joe Shaver. Ain’t that exciting?! Squidbillies Volume 5 will be available starting August 7 for the suggested retail price of $19.97.
Co-created by David Willis (Aqua Unit Patrol Squad) and Jim Fortier (The Brak Show), Squidbillies follows the unconventional lives of a family of squids left behind when the pre-historic oceans receded from the North Georgian mountains. During the fifth season, Squidbillies was the #1 show in its time slot with adults 18-34, according to Nielsen Media Research. It was also a Top 10 show among men 18-24, a Top 15 show among adults 18-24 and men 18-34, and a Top 20 show among adults 18-34 and men 18-49 during the fifth season.
Adult Swim will support the DVD release of Squidbillies Volume 5 with a consumer marketing campaign targeting fans of Adult Swim. Thirty-second television ads will be featured on Adult Swim, while online advertisements will be featured on AdultSwim.com in conjunction with a social media campaign.
