As I’m sure a lot of you did, I grew up watching The Price Is Right. It’s a show that seems to appeal to everyone (who wouldn’t want to win themselves a new car?!).
And how else would I remember to have my pet spayed or neutered without the daily reminder from Bob Barker?
And anytime I hear someone talking about getting a new car, I always imagine Rod Roddy‘s voice yelling “A NEW CAR!” in my head.
But what might just make the show is seeing the great reactions people have when they win something big. Everyone dreams of stepping up to the wheel and hitting the dollar spot-on in their first spin, but it rarely happens that way.
It happened not once, but TWICE for this contestant, and the way he celebrates is priceless.
And of course, Drew Carey was just as impressed with his celebration as everyone else, and even comments after the fish dance “I think Eliot forgot about a little thing called the internet… I’ll be looking forward to seeing that for a thousand years.”
And of course, it was only a matter of time before someone made an animated .gif of it.
Eliot is now $26,000 richer, but it’s not always the big winners that are the most memorable.
There was that time that comedian Josh Androsky was a contestant while under the influence of hallucinogens, and told Drew that his occupation was Skateboard Rabbi.
From the YouTube description:
Hi. I’m an idiot and I took mushrooms, got drunk, then went on The Price Is Right and lied to Drew Carey’s melting face. (HE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER)
My favorite moment of the whole show was actually cut out for TV. When I first told Drew I was a Skateboard Rabbi, everyone started laughing, but the stage manager started scribbling furiously on a piece of paper, and he held it up and it just said
so then Drew starts pressing me, he goes all f***ing Frost/Nixon.
“How do you incorporate skateboards into Judiasm, Joshua?”
and i just pulled a line outta my ass and said
“Well, Drew. We go to local high schools and try to turn Religious Extremism into Religious X-TREMEism!” and then I think I did an air guitar solo.
That’s when Drew’s face sorta changed and he got more quiet and stopped joking with me, because I guess that sounded enough like a bumper sticker or some shit that he actually believed me (that’s why the cut is so weird when it goes to “HE REALLY IS A SKATEBOARD RABBI!”)
What’s your favourite memory of watching The Price Is Right?
