STELLA is a three-man comedy troupe from New York City, comprised of well-known comedians/actors Michael Showalter, David Wain, and Michael Ian Black. Though the three have made a living performing at comedy clubs, they are perhaps best known for their home-made short films.

This DVD showcases the trio's first twenty-three adventures, each one more bizarre and hysterical than the last. Highlights include: a game of whiffleball that goes terribly awry, an expedition to the South Pole (?) to meet Santa Claus, an edge-of-your-seat moustache-growing contest, a twisted "whodunit"-style murder mystery, and much, much more.

They came back, the pride of South Australia and they did the unthinkable. They won back to back Premierships. If Adelaide fought mighty odds to win four straight finals in '97, they did it the hard way in '98. This time there was no home final, this time there was a defeat at the hands of Melbourne to begin their campaign and this time there was the perception that the Crows were not as hungry. Malcolm Blight attained God like status in Adelaide when he coached his side to that history making flag. In 1998 he proved again he is the master thinker and a coach in his own special class. Against a team on the roll and highly favoured, the Crows produced something special. They have made themselves heroes at home and admired where ever they play. From 15th in 1996, this is a team that has done what so few have done before. They defended their crown.
