The extra cookie goes to quickreaver for investigating this mystery and getting an answer from Perry Battista:


That artwork is awesome. Hee...the place even has a hot tub!

What's the meaning do you think? I mean...there's gotta be a meaning right? Situations often have the boys over a barrel - so I suppose it could be a reference to that.

Woot! I am ridiculous happy about this. Fans rock. The crew of SPN rock!

Biggest, happiest smile....and a Snoopy dance. Never would have guessed barrel in a million years. We got part of it though. The Barrel is probably partly because of what you mentioned and also because the episode is set in Buffalo, New York, which is near Niagara Falls. It looks like there's a picture of the Canadian portion of the falls on the card. People have tried to go over the falls in barrels. The first one to survive going over them did it that way. Lots of people go to Niagara Falls for their honeymoons.

SPN has the best crew ever.

Now if somebody would just find out what the black and white show the first victim in Slice Girls is watching....

Noooooo. You can't say these things because I get fixated on this sort of detective work!

In case this does take over your life, I screwed up and it's the second victim. I forgot there was a teaser. The cap of the TV is here...


I will live with not knowing but if I ever meet Jerry Wanek it will probably be the first thing I blurt out, much to my consternation....I live for minutiae. 8-)

It's so cool you got an answer to this one. It's been a lot of fun.

Minutiae is awesome!

You kno, I think I can hear that guys voice, but I don't know his name. My hubby probably does though - he's good at that stuff. I'll check it. :)

(Very cool. Twitter is awesome like that.)

Actually, the image used in the brochure is a picture of the American Falls (see the third photo down on the Wiki page), which is a part of the Falls that's only on the US side.

It's identifiable as the American Falls because of the Bridal Veil, that little skinny bit of waterfall separate from the rest of it.

There have been a number of daredevils over the years who have attempted to go over the Canadian side (the much larger and more dangerous waterfall) in wooden barrels. As galwithglasses says, that's where the term came from.

That's great info. Thanks! I've updated my motels post with this added info. I reckon it's spot on. :))

No problem! I was there on vacation back in 2002 with my mom. If anyone ever asks, stay on the Canadian side of the river instead of the US side. The Canadian side has tons of tourist attractions and a casino!

Thanks for the catch on the falls. Looking at it again, it doesn't have the curve of the Canadian falls. I've only ever been by the Horseshoe ones and didn't look too closely. I really can't believe anyone survived going over in a barrel or anything else. They're just so massive and there's so much water. The roar of the water is enormous.

Isn't that great!?! I think if you hadn't have suggested Over the Rainbow I might have just left it - but it really got me thinking.

And I reckon that's exactly the reason why it's called that. The barrel ties in perfectly to the picture of the falls (American Falls as suggested below).

I also wonder if that prism is meant to represent the rainbow that's created when sunlight hits a waterfall?

Ooh - B&W film from the Spice Girls... I'll have to take another look. ;)

You know, the bridge connecting Canada and America over the fall is called the rainbow bridge, probably an in joke for the crew?
16th-Mar-2013 10:46 am (UTC)
Um...just checked that. The first victim is on his computer and listening to music...?

I bet it's the one after the teaser. I forgot there was one there. It's the one that happens intercut with the sex scene. The cap is here.
