SANDCASTLES IN THE SAND

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

It was once one of How I Met Your Mother’s most closely guarded secrets, but when it became known in the second-season episode “Slap Bet” that Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) was once a Canadian teen pop star in the ‘90s known as Robin Sparkles, it became one of the funniest running gags in television. The career of Robin Sparkles, however, was nothing to laugh at – her hit “Sandcastles in the Sand” sold more than 1 million copies. VIP Fan Auctions is offering her Maple Sales Award (Canadian equivalent of a gold record) for the song, which features a framed “Sandcastles in the Sand” record.

THE LUSTY LEOPARD

Everyone has that special home away from home where they can go to feel safe, to feel loved – a place where everyone knows your name (or at least one of your clever aliases). For How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris), that place is the Lusty Leopard strip club. “The Lusty Leopard is where I developed my game,” Barney admitted during the Season 8 episode “The Stamp Tramp,” but the club has a storied history with all of the HIMYM gang – it’s where Barney fell hard for Quinn Garvey (a.k.a. Karma), where Mike Tyson once took Robin to discuss crazy women, and where the gang discovers Lily’s doppleganger “Stripper Lily” (a.k.a.…

SMOKEY WITH A HINT OF AGED KETCHUP

Glen McKenna single-malt Scotch is the holy grail of spirits in the How I Met Your Mother universe. The booze, which Ted lovingly describes as “tasting smokey with a hint of aged cedar,” has featured prominently in How I Met Your Mother – including the time that Lily and Robin accidentally broke a $600 bottle of 30-year-old McKenna during a sword fight. They replaced the contents with a mixture of cheap booze, chocolate syrup, ketchup and hand sanitizer, but Ted couldn’t tell the difference. When Ted drops the bottle before Barney and Robin’s wedding, Lilly replaces it with one she heisted from the Farhampton Liquor Store storage room – and that bottle also gets broken.…

One of the many great aspects of How I Met Your Mother is the comedy’s subtle humor, often picked up by eagle-eyed super-fans who pay close attention to the backgrounds and flashbacks.

WHEN IT’S TIME TO STOP

How I Met Your Mother’s Marshall (Jason Segel) developed a terrible habit of wearing a Dr. Seuss hat. Robin (Cobie Smulders) couldn’t stop tanning. Lily (Alyson Hannigan) developed an English accent from watching too many James Bond movies. Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) won’t stop wearing his old-man disguise… All of these compulsions sparked an intervention to correct the deviant behavior. Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor), who was targeted for his own intervention based on his complicated relationship with Stella (Sarah Chalke), even had a special “intervention” banner designed specifically for these interventions – which VIP Fan Auctions is now offering to the fan who casts the winning bid.…
