Daily ToYoTA: Adrienne Barbeau plays Pyramid

For the purposes of self-promotion (a lot of visitors have arrived here via the Markie Post post) and injecting some much-needed amusement back into Toastiest, I present another glorious game show moment featuring a beloved C-list star from the 70s and 80s, Adrienne Barbeau (Maude, Swamp Thing, Back to School, Carnivàle, and, apparently, the forthcoming Halloween remake).

UPDATE (8/17/07): Shucks, someone doesn’t want to let anyone pirate Adrienne Barbeau clips on Pyramid, so the YouTube clip is gone. This requires drastic action…

Daily ToYoTA: Bob Barker: “Now you’ve had enough…bitch”

I spent far too much time over the weekend browsing clips from The Price Is Right in an attempt to find a worthy post to honor Bob Barker’s retirement. (There’s a whole army of people who like to post TPIR clips). I actually do want to keep up with this daily video post, even though I’m come to decide that the name is pretty stupid. So I’ll post two Bob Barker clips to make up for getting behind.

The first one is from Bob’s primetime send-off from May, in which Adam Sandler makes a surprise appearance. I’m not an Adam Sandler fan, and I didn’t even find his “Ode to Bob Barker” particularly funny, but I think Adam Sandler showing up symbolizes how Barker has appealed to every generation. (I am one of the very few people, I think, who actually liked “Punch-Drunk Love”).
