As we mentioned in the description for their previous reel Bloopers have a long and storied history most people simply don’t know about. Fortunately you don’t need the history and origin of the term to appreciate the reel itself. Bloopers are timeless and have been the star clips in shows worldwide since getting their kick start from producers Schafer and Hewat. They are in fact still widely in use today of a variety of programs.
The term “blooper” itself was popularized in America by television producer Kermit Schaefer during the 1950’s. Schaefer produced a long-running series of Pardon My Blooper! record albums in the 1950s’ and 1960’s which featured a mix of actual recordings of errors that were aired on live television and radio broadcasts. He even went so far as to make multiple re-creations of bloopers he couldn’t find the original content for. Schaefer also transcribed many reported bloopers into a series of books that he published up until his untimely death in 1979.
The term “blooper” is also short for “Blue Pencil”, which was the color of pencil used to cross out unacceptable parts of documents and letters by the “blue-person”. The “blue person” was an employee who had the job of redacting sensitive material from said documents. The origin of the term itself is amusing enough to incite laughter. It is unknown how many “blue people” have been employed over the years but we believe it is a notable number. Jonathan Hewat was the first person in the UK to broadcast radio bloopers. He did so on a Bank Holiday Show on BBC Radio Bristol towards the end of the 1980’s.
The thing about Bloopers that makes them such interesting and compelling content is that they not only inspire laughter they show us that each and every person, regardless of who they are and what they do, makes bloopers. It is the very essence of being human. It reminds us all that life doesn’t always need to be taken so seriously. Laughter is definitely the best medicine.
This particular reel has shots of Candice being her usual hilarious self, attempting to juggle, getting caught up on her own words, and even over pouring ingredients.
