Ellen TV: Throwback Thursday
Ellen kicked off her show today by talking about Throwback Thursday.
“You know what that is, right? You look back at old photos or videos of yourself and you wonder why you ever thought bangs were a good idea,” Ellen said.
Ellen wanted to look back at something they used to do on the show called Reenactments, where they asked viewers to send in real stories that happened to them and then Ellen reenacted it. “That is why we called them reenactments,” Ellen said.
Ellen Airplane Reenactment
This reenactment was from January 4, 2007. The reenactment was of a woman visiting her sister in Indiana. She was worried she was going to catch the flu or cold from riding an airplane. So she took some Airborne to help her curb the sickness in advance. It didn’t have directions and she’d never taken it before. So she opened the tablet and thought she was supposed to chew it. As she started chewing it, she started foaming at the mouth.
She was surprised they let her on the airplane with her mouth foaming. When she got on the plane, she felt sick and she thought that’s how it was supposed to work. Maybe you feel sick, then you don’t get sick. So she got there, she told her sister she never wants to take Airborne because it makes you sick and keeps foaming. Her sister told her she was supposed to put it in water.
Ellen TV: Audience Dancer
Ellen saw someone dancing before the show, so she asked her to come down and reenact her dance from earlier. The woman was really great at dancing! It was very impressive.
Ellen: Litter Genie Review
It’s the fourth day of the 5th Annual Cat Week, which is sponsored by Litter Genie. Ellen turned it over to Lauren, who gestured to the product and demonstrated that she loves to use Litter Genie cat liter as dry shampoo. Ellen told her not to do it, but she kept doing it.
