Tina Vasquez set a new record last night when she spent 17 consecutive hours watching Tim Allen-related media, and all without leaving her bed.
“I didn’t even realize it,” says Vasquez. “It was kind of like when you’ve got a booger stuck in your nose but you don’t find out until there’s this massive glob on your shirt.
“This marathon was that booger.”
Vasquez began her journey at 10:00.
She wakes up every morning to a healthy dose of Home Improvement DVDs. On this particular morning, Vasquez decided not to attend class and instead watched a Toy Story marathon on ABC Family.
“I thought about getting some food after the first two,” said Vasquez, “but if you watch the first two, you might as well go for the third.” “Otherwise, what’s the point, you know?”
After the marathon, ABC Family aired several episodes of Home Improvement. At that point, it was only 8:00 PM, yet Vasquez would set her record 17-hour run without viewing a single show or movie after that time.
“At around 8:00, I got bored and I sort of flipped through the channels for a few hours, but it was nothing but commercials.”
Luckily for Vasquez, every single commercial on television now features Tim “The Toolman” Taylor selling soup or a Chevy or insurance or insurance for when you crash your Chevy because you were drinking hot soup and driving.
Said Vasquez, “To be honest, I’m pretty sure 70% of the marathon was just commercials”¦”
Buzz Lightyear to the rescue.
