That the visionaries at Found Footage Festival discovered this “Mastering the Art of Carving” video in a Detroit thrift store isn't so strange. Scavenging and repurposing campy video treasures is their-stock-in-trade.

Country ham or a city ham, neither can compete with the hams at the editing bay behind this doozy.
