the entourage intro oddity
I’m working through the DVD box sets of the first four seasons of Entourage. This HBO show is very enjoyable. The character chemistry and nature of the situation sets it apart from all of the other shows.
After seeing the introduction sequence over twenty times and hearing the catchy Jane’s Addiction tune over and over again, I spotted something odd with the fast-paced footage of the boys driving down the street. The clip where Adrian Grenier’s name is superimposed on the lit sign of a convenience store is flipped horizontally. Check it out:
You can easily notice that the word ‘PIZZA’ on the sign is flipped. Then you notice that the ‘ATM’ neon sign in the window is flipped, the two other instances of the ‘PIZZA’ in the neons are flipped, and the Pepsi logo used by the pizzeria’s sign is flipped.
The editor thought he could pull a fast one, but my eyes were a little faster. Although this is something trivial, it belongs on IMDb’s fun facts or one of those sites that catalogues this kind of nonsense.
OK… so I just checked IMDb and it’s already on the Goofs section. Oh well… I’m not deleting this post. 😉
