2. That was the transition between "A Christmas Story" on TBS

"A Christmas Story" is one of my holiday must watch movies and TBS usually shows the movie on a loop for 24 hrs from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day. That was the actual TBS transition between the movies that I watched tonight. I backed up the DVR because I was so surprised at what I saw. Someone at TBS needs to catch some flack over this!!!!

4. I seriously had to watch it twice....

Before I believed what I saw....yeah, I've been drinking in the festivities tonight, but I saw that and thought Wow! I had to back up the DVR and record it before I actually believed what I saw

5. Wow. What is that supposed to mean? It appears to be purposeful. I don't like it one bit.

What was coming from his fingers? Coins? Was that the sea? Then the whipped substance on his face, and then his gorging on some food.

6. Another transition had a guy (same one?) doing a "Dreidel Dance"

That one is on YouTube:



Could these cryptic spots be teasers for some new show?

8. I've seen that same thing before between episodes of The Big Bang Theory on that channel.

I've seen the one with the dreidel too.

They always have some kind of goofy thing between shows.

9. If I had to guess, I'd say they were trying to reference the "cocaine mountain" scene from Scarface.



Maybe the idea is that the guy snorts all the powdered chanukah sugar and then 10 minutes later he's doing the dreidel dance. Wizzzzzzzzzzz! Zing! Zing! Zing!

Usually I'm all for edgy humor, film references, and even material of questionable television suitability, but I'm not sure they accomplished what they wanted here, which was probably to make a cute 5 second acknowledgement of Chanukah in the midst of all the Xmas fun.

10. Ah good point...

I was probably too far into holiday festivities to give it the in depth analysis but in the light of morning, I think you're right. That's probably what they were going for.
