TV Shows

I love television executives; they're so smart. They give us endless iterations of Deal or No deal and craft cleverly placed "commercials" called bumpers that air during new programs. These so-called commercials involve people discussing the characters' lives in an effort to mirror the very conversations we're having at home. Turns out, though, we're not discussing the cast of Chuck; we're talking about when and where Mr. Mucus will triumph over us all.

We received a few upcoming bumpers for your favorite shows running now and in syndication. 


# 1. According to Jim
 

How to get the "Jim" look:

  • Pants: Purchase extra "stretchy" overalls with hoagie-sized pockets for instantaneous sandwich consumption; they can be found at Walmart or on local snow men.
  • Shirt: Bring Woody doll (from Toy Story) to store. Ask if they carry the shirt in a size Jack Black.

 

# 2. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles



How to get the "Terminator" look:

  • Body: Remove skin from Wilford Brimley; paint his bones silver and wear as exoskeleton.
  • Eyes: Remove glasses; ask your local Lens Crafters salesperson for contact lens in "bar code scanner" red.


# 3. Grey's Anatomy

How to get the "Cristina" (Sandra Oh) look:

  • Hair: Remove mop. Place onto head.
  • Make-Up: Place photo of E.T. onto face.


# 4. Dateline NBC



How to get the Stone Phillips look:
