Our best guess is that this is some kind of time-hopping comedy sketch, since Bert looks suspiciously similar to a rather bored Adam Scott in a few shots, but it could also just be some not-so-complicated way to skirt licensing laws for international recording artists who are looking for an easy hit. Either way, the actual “Der Hund Von Baskerville” record is apparently pretty rare, so you could almost get a couple hundred bucks if you happen to have this weird thing in your collection.
