Hey guys, I was just recently watching a clip from Up, and I noticed a little bit of audio that I heard from somewhere else, and made a little discovery…
For starters, here’s the clip from Up I’m referring to: youtube.com/watch?v=nwPMKcYEkmw
Pay attention to what’s being said on the TV when Carl is watching… The next Youtube clip will give away what Carl was really watching.
Here’s the infomercial clip: youtube.com/watch?v=ALob2IKOHD0
This is probably one of the funniest commercial “fails” ever. At about 20 seconds into the clip, I was actually surprised to hear the same thing that was heard in the clip.
Anyways, I felt like sharing my little discovery, cause I think it’s quite funny. Has anyone else noticed this before, or am I the first to point it out? Pixar has a little sense of humor.
Haha, yeah, someone else posted a link to that in a different thread, though I can’t remember for the life of me who spotted it or in what thread they mentioned it in. Ultimate fail that guy is, definitely.
Now that is epic failage right there. At first I thought it was a mistake because the presenter was standing behind the photo and perhaps couldn’t see it, but then he started pointing at the moth and saying it was a horse, lol. Great how Pixar worked that in there. It makes me wonder if a Pixarian saw that clip on YouTube then suggested it be used in Up.
Haha yeah, I’ve seen it before. When I watched that clip, the sound was so familiar so it got me thinking… Then I was like “Oh yeah!!” then looked up that infomercial clip on Youtube to see if it is indeed the same clip from the movie, and it was!
Haha, it would be funny if they did that on purpose just to show how sour his attitude is.
They probably put it in there intentionally after seeing it and finding it hilarious.
Even if no one got the reference there, having an old man sitting there watching an infomercial about a digital camera with 4X optical zoom and SD card was still a nice commentary on how disconnected Carl must feel with modern society.
LOL, yeah I figured that out too! I was kinda disappointed that Pete Docter and Bob Peterson didn’t bring it up on the DVD commentary during that scene so more people would know about it. Just goes to show the kind of power the internet and YouTube can have on some movies in today’s world.
