    I can't help it... I listen to the call that set up this big money event and find it amazing how "relaxed" /passive Gary was about the guy that ratted him out and how quickly it turned into a huge money making opportunity for Gar... I gotta go paint the kitchen now.

    It has become difficult to watch/listen to clips from the golden age without a jaundice eye/ear..especially .knowing what we know now.

    So are you saying Gary (knowing he would one day be on the HSS) records a faggy video to his exgirlfriend in the hopes of one day cashing in on it?

    I'm confused. :scratch:

    Gary knew it wasn't that embarrassing and that he could get a big pay day while everyone in the studio desperately tried to play it up as humiliating. Good for him.

    At least he got paid (allegedly...Howard probably took his cut) but yes, every build up to every "classic" bit was brilliantly set up by the HSS, and that's what made it great. Looking back it's kind of like figuring out a magician's magic trick...once you know the secret its no big deal, in fact it's a major letdown.

    Gary's tape, Scott's exercise saga, etc.... all set up bits, THSS is a scripted reality show before there were reality shows, IMO. Now we as fans know how Howard does it, so he's completely lost his magic.

    this

    I remember they once had a guy on the phone who said he fucked the family dog........................because that's something you would immediately admit to in a casual conversation broadcast to millions of people. :rolleyes:

    They actually got caught faking a call many years ago. They had a guy on the phone who claimed to kill cats, so the cops called the station to investigate and they had to fess up to it being fake.

    The Gary tape seemed real to me though, even if the set-up/build up to it wasn't.

    But I don't really care if something is true or not; just make it funny. That's why the show is triple-pathetic now; they can't even be fake-funny now.

    It is called deceitful double down douche baggery.
    Call out others for doing the same shit you do.
    It is an amazing strategy.
    When Howard outed Drew Barrymore and later Kathy Griffin for selling shit (cheese whiz) during interviews, Stern had already been do that for years!

    The give away on fake calls. When they start off slow and boring and stern doesn't hang up...they are staged or fake!
