There Is No Better Tribute To Prince Than These Riffs From MST3K’s ‘Agent For HARM’

You're probably familiar the cult TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000 (if you're not, get the DVDs -- it's hilarious). The premise is a man and his robot pals are trapped in space and forced to watch bad movies, but make the most of it by riffing on the awfulness.
The show began on a local TV station in Minneapolis, was soon picked up by Comedy Central and then migrated to the SciFi Channel. It ran for about 10 years, and they even made a movie.
Since Prince is also from Minneapolis, the MST3K crew delighted in referencing him. So when they screened the movie Agent For HARM, which featured a character who looked exactly like Prince, well, the result was magical.
Check out all of the Prince riffs here, from Agent For HARM.
MST3K was created by Joel Hodgson, but by this time he had left the show and Mike Nelson had taken his seat in the theater. Mike is joined here by Crow T. Robot (Bill Corbett) and Tom Servo (Kevin Murphy). The guy who looks like Prince? I have no clue.
