It turns out that the same trends on display at your local cineplex — that there are no original ideas, that trilogies reign, that companies will mine nostalgia and reboot franchises when presented with the option — is also true of local comedic video stylings.

Following last night's MLB home run derby at Progressive Field, new WKYC anchor Mike Polk Jr. unveiled the third installment of the Hastily Made Cleveland Video series. Someone obviously asked for this, we're guessing, and given the national spotlight of the midsummer classic's arrival on the shores of Lake Erie and deep pockets of ESPN, we can't imagine Mr. Polk thought about turning them down.



So, here it is, ten years after the original debuted, featuring predictable zingers about breweries, river fires, the Browns and such. Oh how we've grown.
