Answer: Phone Jeopardy.
Question: What is infuriating the venerable Alex Trebek?
I for one certainly don’t recall Phone Jeopardy and maybe now there is a good reason. Alex Trebek just wasn’t fully behind the promotion of this idea as we see in this gem of a clip from FoundFootageFest. In 1990 “Jeopardy” started a 1-900 number (remember those) where you could play at home for five dollars a minute. Man that seems ridiculous even now. Check out the clip but be warned there are foul words spewed forth from Mr. Trebek:
“TIIIIIINKERBELLLLLLLL!” Alex has always been smug when he knows the answer hasn’t he? I think my favorite part is the phone and Alex’s discomfort with it as a prop. I bet he had one of them huge cell phones even back in 1990. Well no funny Trebek video post would be complete without including SNL’s mock up starring Will Ferrell:
You just can’t go wrong with Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek vs. Sean Connery. Connery almost makes as good an adversary as a phone, almost.
