Thank you, Savannah.

Last night while watching the monstrosity that is the stage play of Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself on DVD with Ben and Kevin, a huge huge crash came from down the street. It sounded like a giant pane of glass being dropped on concrete from a really high distance. What it actually was was a car crashing into the side of a house a few houses away, on the corner of Drayton and Jones.
No one died and it didn't seem like anyone was hurt, really. We went and looked at the giant hole in the house, talked to a mutual friend who saw it happen, and then eventually went back inside to finish the play.
A few hours later, after police tape was put up and the car and people and the cops were all gone, this is what was there:

Someone looked over there and saw not the place of a terrible car accident, but the opportunity to live out a dream.

And really, haven't we all had that dream? To be in a situation where making a sign of the Kool-Aid man breaking through a wall would make sense?


Whoever is responsible for this is an amazing angel.

UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 15, 2010
My previously mentioned friend Kevin, who was present for this event, has published the journal comic chronicling the event:

this is in reference to Family GUy.. the koolaid guy randomly smashes thru a wall on several episodes.

Anonymous said...

Or, more likely, it's a reference to Kool-Aid man, stupid.

You DO know Kool-Aid man was around breaking through walls way before Family Guy came around, don't you?

Anonymous said...

Before Family Guy, they had actual Kool-Aid advertisements of him smashing through walls. I'm pretty sure this is in reference to the actual thing and not some parody on a television show.

Anonymous said...

BAH. Anon #2 took exactly what I was going to say. Must be a minor still.

Anonymous said...

To Anonymous #2, #3 and #4: Do you realice the sets "Countries where Family Guy is aired" and "Countries where Kool-Aid is sold" are not equal?

I for one only knew Kool-Aid exists because it appears in Family Guy.

Anonymous said...

Keep in mind that while the Kool-Aid Man bits on Family Guy were indeed inspired by the original commercials, the idea of using him in such a humorous, parodying nature was widely popularized by Family Guy. The same generation that grew up with the Kool-Aid Man busting down walls ended up watching Family Guy in high school/college. I have little doubt that the proprietor of this art has seen not only the original commercials, but the Family Guy episode as well. Admittedly it's ambiguous as to whether or not the first anonymous poster has seen the original commercials, but I think it's reasonable to assume that he did, as it would have made the Family Guy episodes resonate with him more, leading him to post as he did.

Because this was in the US its safe to assume the first place that they were exposed to the kool aid man was through the kool aid.

It's a sad, sad day when people think that this parodies Family guy, and not the original source materials. Reminds me of a time when a comment poster thought John Woo's "Red Cliff" movie was based on the "Dynasty Warriors" video games.

Then again, most of today's culture thinks Avatar is original, too, so, there you go.

Love this so much - reposted and gave you all the credit in the world. I know you probably didn't do the Kool Aid man, but you did make my whole day by sharing!

So, do they even still make Kool-Aid, I hear it referenced in some of my favortie "rap" songs, but have not seen it in years. Please note: I only drink water and tea.

wooooowwwww....yea kool aid man was sooo totally first. family guy parodys everything. so just because they did a parody of star wars mean that they came up with the idea then the movies were made...im 25 and i clearly remember tv commercials from childhood and even in high school.

and yes children of the soda pop and energy drink era, they do make koolaid. it cost 25 cents for a packet, add a cup of sugar and a pitcher of water and you got drink for days... granted if you know how much a cup is and what exactly a pitcher is...yes some things you have to make yourself...please kids explore outside of your prepackaged conveinant modern mechanical lives and see what you are missing in the simple life!!!

This was actually my apartment at Jones/Drayton. I was across town at the time, but my dog was at home in her crate. She was scared, but OK. It was a basement apartment and the loose bricks tumbled down the stairs, created so much dust. I lived there 2 months and was actually happy to have a reason to leave! (Never live in a basement in Savannah) Glad that someone was able to bring some humor to the situation!
