If I’m making a list of my favorite horror movies from the 80’s, then The Stuff is going to be high on that list. Hey, don’t scoff at that! The Stuff is quintessential viewing, especially if you’re high or if you’re a Garrett Morris fan. Now, I could go on and on about Chocolate Chip Charlie, but I want to focus on the fake commercials that were in the movie. You really can’t go wrong with Abe Vigoda and the ‘Where’s The Beef?‘ lady, can you?
“Enough is never enough! Enough is never enough!” Oh sorry. I got carried away with that catchy theme song. Did you ever really wonder what The Stuff really tasted like by the way? I always envisioned it to be a mixture of marshmallow fluff and toothpaste, which doesn’t sound entirely appetizing, but it could have been delicious. And speaking of delicious, how about I take us out of this post with another fake commercial starring a woman who could possibly be a man or maybe inhaled a little too much helium before the shoot.
I always get nervous when Halloween comes around, because I feel like I can never come up with a creative, original costume. Good thing I won’t have that problem this year, because I think I’m going to go as Chocolate Chip Charlie from the 1985 B-movie horror classic, The Stuff!
Quite possibly the most random Halloween mask I’ve ever seen, it’s a pretty good replication of what our chocolate chip guru (played masterfully by Garrett Morris) looked like when he revealed that he was indeed hooked on The Stuff. Granted, most people won’t know who the hell you are if you wear it – but you’ll definitely get points for originality. If you’re interested in this bad boy, head on over to Ebay HERE and snag one up for $110. A bit pricey, but it’s hand made and painted, so think of it as supporting the arts. And always remember: Enough is never enough of The Stuff! Isn’t that right, Chocolate Chip Charlie?
It’s moments like this when I love the internet. For those of you who don’t know about the 1985 B-movie extravaganza called The Stuff, you really need to do some research. It has drama. It has intrigue. It has something that you eat that eats you from the inside out. And it has a character named Chocolate Chip Charlie. All of this somewhat pointless info is leading up to me telling you that someone over in the UK has recreated an actual tub of ‘The Stuff‘ and you can purchase one on Ebay!
Yes. Those are the actual replicas that you can purchase. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. Just think of how impressed your B-movie loving friends would be if they went to your fridge for a cold one and got an eyeful of The Stuff instead. Yes, the seller is located in the UK, but they do ship to the US and it’s honestly not a bad price in total to get your hands on one of these (about $30 total). Head on over to the Ebay page right HERE and feel free to click ‘Buy It Now‘. Just be warned. If the carton arrives and it has a delicious white treat inside, proceed cautiously because this may happen:
