Have you ever been chillaxin’ in your recliner watching a rerun of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and thought, “Man, I sure wish I knew how their lives smelled?” Well my TV watching friends, this is American reality TV where awkward dreams come true!
Mama June and her brood are helping to promote the upcoming premiere of the popular show’s 2nd season with two Watch ‘N Sniff episodes. If you’re like me and know that trying to scratch the ol’ flat screen while Paula Deen is on never works, let me explain how this new venture’s gonna happen. Actually, I’ll let TLC’s official press release help you smell what the Thompsons are cooking:
With a numbered scent card that correlates to scenes in the double-stacked premiere episodes, viewers will be able to watch the show, scratch their cards and redneckognize the aromas associated with the Boo Boo gang as they welcome the sights, sounds and smells of summer.
Nearly ten million Watch ‘n Sniff cards, featuring six scents, will be distributed across the country. Inserts will break exclusively in PEOPLE’s 7/15/13 issue, hitting newsstands on July 5. Inserts will also run in Us Weekly, hitting newsstands on Friday, July 12, to lead into the premiere on Wednesday, July 17 at 9 PM ET/PT. In partnership with Time Warner Cable, the Watch n’ Sniff cards will also be available at select Time Warner Cable retail stores across the country. Additional cards will be handed out by street teams in major markets.
This is one of the most beautimously outrageous ideas I’ve ever heard! And I think it works in perfect tandem with the wonderfully outrageous and genuine family from McIntyre, Georgia. Before you get carried away, which I already have, the network added, “The event will treat viewers’ senses to the diverse and fragrant smells found in rural McIntyre, GA. Just in time for the heat of summer, fans can catch a whiff of the only television event of its kind.”
That sounds a little tame, but when I’m out doing my scratchin card collectin’ here’s what I’ll be hoping for. Enjoy our list of Top 5 Watch ‘N Sniff Collector Cards for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
