Buckets o’ fun

Can you remember the last time you witnessed the birth of something truly amazing?

Maybe it was the actual birth of your child.  Or a huge idea at work that made a gazillion dollars for your company.   Or maybe you simply learned something new that made one of those cartoon light bulbs start flashing above your head.

Hey — it could happen.

Well, yesterday I witnessed the birth of a new game on late night television.  (Yes — something that important.)

Jimmy Fallon debuted a new audience participation game called “Models and Buckets” on his show Monday night.  I saw it Tuesday morning on DVR while I drank my breakfast.

I laughed aloud the entire segment.

I can’t decide if the game is brilliant in its simplicity — pouring stuff from buckets on people’s heads — or if my blood sugar was low and anything would have been funny.  But subsequent viewings on a full stomach still make make me laugh.

Here’s a link to the video clips.  Jimmy cut the segment in two so it would play faster on your computer.  (He’s such a nice boy.)

Let me know what you think!

  1. Pondering the start of my own WordPress blog, and browsing though some currently in operation, I came across yours. Inspiring. LOVE where your thinkin’. So in reading your piece on “Models & Buckets,” I had a serious laugh. The guys reactions were priceless. But all I could think, despite the protective eyewear, was that has got to really burn their eyeballs? Also, seemed awfully convenient that the bills dropped last, but then they wouldn’t have made it through the entire repertoire of items. Wonder if new clothes were part of the prize? After a shakey start, Jimmy is kicking ass – and my favorite late night entertainment. kudos.

    • I’m with you — I think the guys were told NOT to pick bucket 11 so the game could go right to the end. Not sure if it will be as funny the next time around, but damn — I loved this first viewing! 🙂 Thanks for writing.
