1st Logo
(Early 1990's?)

Logo: On a background of inverted footage of an nuclear explosion while shifting colors, we see a the text in a wavy-like font "SOMETHING" and below it the text in the same font "WEIRD" along with the text "ViDEO" in a funky-like font below the logo while the entire logo is surrounded by a rectangular outline border while also being tilted a little to the left. The entire logo (including the border) changes colors in black, grey, white, yellow, blue, green, magenta, red, and purple.

FX/SFX: The colors constantly changing.

Music/Sounds: None

Availability: Seen on the company's earliest VHS releases such as <a href="" target="_self">Hallucination Generation</a>.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(1990's- )

Logo: We see a black and dark yellow color wheel background that seems to constantly spin throughout the entire length of the logo. Then we see the text in a purple wavy-like font SOMETHING WEIRD. Then the letters in a dark green funky-like font VIDEO (with the trademark symbol) appear one at a time.

Variant: The logo can sometimes be brighter.

Trailer Variant: In some of their trailers, some fanfare is played over the logo while you can still hear the original music of the logo.

FX/SFX: The spinning background and the text zooming out.

Music/Sounds: An eerie horror-themed fanfare that seems to loop twice throughout the logo.

Availability: Seen on exploit horror and pornography films on VHS, DVD, and Blu-Ray.

Editor's Note: None.
