LOL... only 1,200 miles.  Dunno why I thought that part was funny.  Smiley
But to quote, this is one of the TWO Jeeps used.

oh no.
why are they doing that?
it made me sad.

NOTE:

1) The seller points out that it's ONE OF TWO Jeeps used in the series.  It's quite possible that even if this offering is legitimate (and I seriously doubt it) that Warner is holding onto the *other* Jeep just in case of a revival.  Due to the low mileage, it's possible that this was the back-up Jeep.

2) When cars from TV series are sold, there's often either a rider in the contract allowing the studio to borrow it for use in case of a revival and then, sometimes the buyer just allows the show to use it anyway when asked.  And often, the studio will just buy another example of the same model (Dukes of Hazzard went through *hundreds* of Dodge Chargers, but that's an extreme case.)

3)  I looked up the seller -- has put very few items up for auction.  And NONE of them anywhere close to this price.  Doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bogus offering -- but heck, when I took my tour of the WB studio -- *twice* [size=16pt]I[/size] could have taken pictures of the Jeep from every angle (and actually, I pretty much did).  Yes, the details are more or less right -- but the jeep is "distressed" (painted down) not to look older, but 1) to make it non-shiny to cut down on glare for the cameras and 2) to hide the Jeep logo (Probably didn't originate as a product placement deal -- all of the logos on the Jeep were painted over.)  

4) I suppose it's possible that the person has a connection to somebody involved in the show or works on the Warner lot, maybe he/she is a crew member who won it in a wrap party lottery (I'm stretching here, there's no evidence whatsoever of such an event like a give-the-props-away lotter) but IMO, this one sounds bogus to me.  I would think that it would have been offered through Warner Studio because when studios auction off props through eBay, they do it themselves, not through private buyers.  And even if they didn't sell it themselves, I would think that they would have eBayed it through an authorized vehicle dealer and/or very known, very respected high-end memorabilia dealer.  That the person was able to take a picture of the dashboard means one of three things: 1) the person is an employee of the studio who simply had access to the prop and is scamming, 2) the person took a picture of the inside of the exact same model elsewhere than the WB lot and thus could be a fan just doing some scamming or 3) the item is legitimate.

5)  BTW, are any other Gg props on sale on eBay?  No!  I did a search.  No other props from the show are for sale on eBay in the Entertainment Memorabilia Category.  Doesn't mean that other props couldn't appear on eBay for auction in the next few days, but OTOH, the lack of other Gg props makes me skeptical.

6) No prop items listed in ebay under the category Entertainment Media -- Props -- Gilmore Girls or even broader searches for Gilmore Girls, Lauren Graham or Alexis Bledel.  

7) IMO, it's likely a bogus item due to the lack of other props from the show.  If it is a bonfide item up for bid, it still doesn't mean anything about the future of the show because a) it's one item and b) it's not a unique item (ie: a Jeep Wrangler is easy to replace).  I would think, though, that if it were the real thing, the seller or whoever originally acquired it would have had Lauren and/or Alexis and/or the entire rest of the cast sign it.  So, again, sounds bogus to me.

Preeeeeeesenting another installment of . . .

Operation:  Daisy Duke.

Version 2.07:  "For Sale:  Morey’s Salty Nuts!"

MISSION STATEMENT:  Our overall goal with ODD is to send real daisies to everyone who could possibly be needed to get everyone back to the negotiating table in order to urge them to work one last time to revoke the cancellation of Gilmore Girls.

TODAY’S GOALS for “Operation: Daisy Duke” are:

A) To ask viewers everywhere to send daisies on their own to Dawn Ostroff, Lauren Graham and/or Alexis Bledel at their office addresses.  Details on format will be posted in today’s edition of the other Welcome FAQ dealing with the snail mail campaign later today.

B) To max out The CW's viewer comment line by no later than 8pm ET / 5pm PT M-F, call 1-818-977-6878 as early as you can in the day, to lodge your complaint about the changes to The CW's fall schedule, about the cancellation of Gilmore Girls and the opportunity that shouldn't be missed to revive Gilmore Girls now that American Idol has broken itself by voting the real winner off in third place.  Although the goal is to max out the comment line, please do NOT call the line yourself more than once per day -- please get more and more people to call it yourself.  The more people calling the better, the more repeat callers, the worse.  Feel free to mention where you're from, what CW station you watch, your age, how you feel about whatever happens to Veronica Mars and also about the terrible replacement for Gg in the 8pm Tuesday timeslot (HINT:  It's Beauty and the Geek, which is nothing more than the network conceding the timeslot to Fox.), etc.

Without further adieu, I present to you “Operation: Daisy Duke.”

1)  Why "Operation:  Daisy Duke"?  Because it just wouldn't be a Save Gilmore Girls campaign without a bizarro pop culture reference coming from left field.  The show has made some very amusing equations between Lorelai and the hottest Dukes cousin, including having Lorelai drive a jeep (just like Daisy did), having Lorelai wear Daisy Dukes to her meeting with Headmaster Charleston on Rory's first day at Chilton, because Stars Hollow is the set where Hazzard County used to exist and because the exterior of Lorelai's house is the exterior of Uncle Jesse's house.  And because the many ironies inherent in the show's premise strongly suggest that we'll have better luck than Max did with his daisies.

2) Besides the obvious reference to the episode "Love, Daisies and Troubadours," why daisies?  Because nationwide flower delivery is faster than snail mail at this point (ie: next-day delivery) and it's our "tobasco sauce" campaign without a chance of frightening the network in these post 9-11 days.

3) Yes, the series season finale has aired, but it's time to triple our resolve, not to give in! It's time to set up some infrastructure and dive into some serious save-the-show projects.  Lauren's exit interview with Michael Ausiello at TV Guide does NOT mean that all is lost -- she was taken aback by the abrupt cancellation of the series (no matter how much she tries to spin it) and moreover, nobody looks forward to auditions (as she mentioned to Ausiello that she's having to start doing), so Lauren even noting it is a cry for help.  Furthermore, Scott Patterson said in no uncertain terms in his exist interview with Ausiello that he is not happy with the way that the show ended.  MOREOVER, Kelly Bishop and Liza Weil both voiced their unhappiness with the abruptness of the show ending in a Washiington Post article posted on Tuesday, May 15th at
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/05/14/AR2007051401693.html (free and fast registration may be required.)  Encouragingly, Farscape got its four-hour miniseries LONG after the show was cancelled.  Firefly's "Serenity" epilogue was greenlit LONG after that show was cancelled -- and that became a theatrical movie.  NEW:  Also, Amy Sherman-Palladino voiced interest in a 2-hour Gilmore Girls movie to Michael Ausiello at the recent Upfronts for Fox (where her new series is).  Not saying that Gg would go to the big screen, but the perseverance -- the hard work -- of these show's fandoms BEYOND their shows' so-called endings resulted in proper endings for those shows.

4)  Please send your daisies through your local florist.  There are many sources from your local florist to the internet through which you can send daisies to Ms. Ostroff.  Three of the biggest online alternatives include Teleflora, FTD.com and, 1-800-flowers.com, all of which operate national delivery services through local florists anyway.  Many of the online florists only promote $40 vase arrangements of daisies, which may be beyond a Gg fan's budget, but you can probably ask them to send a much cheaper bouquet of a dozen daisies if you ask them (Can't blame them for promoting the more expensive stuff).  A dozen daisies would likely come in a typical cellophane wrap if they're bought by the stem.  Order the daisies in the way that is best for you. 

5) Send yellow daisies ONLY because that's the color of Lorelai. 

6) Send your daisies to Dawn Ostroff at the following address: 

Ms. Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment
The CW Television Network
4000 Warner Blvd., Bldg 168
Burbank, CA 91522-0002


AND to at least Lauren and/or Alexis (especially Alexis) at the addresses of their management teams at:

Amy Sherman-Palladino
c/o Creative Artists Agency
2000 Avenue of the Stars
Los Angeles, CA 90067

Lauren Graham
c/o John Carrabino Management
100 North Crescent Dr.
G-400
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

Alexis Bledel
c/o Flutie Entertainment
6500 Wilshire Blvd
Suite 2240
Los Angeles, CA 90048
Email:  Michael Flutie: [email protected]
Email:  Paul M. Brown:  [email protected]

Peter Roth
President, Warner Brothers Television
300 Television Plaza
Burbank, CA 91505


You can, of course, send small message cards with your bouquet.  The rule is this:  BE POLITE AND POSITIVE.  Do NOT write anything like "I hate you because you cancelled Gilmore Girls!" or "I'm sad that you cancelled Gimore Girls" or "I won't watch The CW ever again unless you uncancel Gilmore Girls."  I totally understand, respect and even share those feelings, but, after all, it's not something that Lorelai or Rory would do in this situation.  Instead, write something like "Please renew Gilmore Girls!" or "Please uncancel Gilmore Girls" and sign it with at least your name and address so that they know how far Gg's fanbase has spread throughout the country and the world.

7) DEADLINE: EVERYDAY is the official deadline. Any day that Daisies or letters or voicemails or email arrive ESPECIALLY because the Fall Schedule was announced at the Upfronts WILL still help!  They need the input about what you think about the fall schedule (and don't say, "It sucks because Gilmore Girls is not on it."

Cool  There is no 8 yet.  That’s the whole point.   

9) Please post to this thread when you've sent a bouquet.  Even one hundred bouquets of just a dozen daisies sent to Ms. Ostroff will surpass the 1000 mark of daisies mentioned by Lorelai and increased by a factor of, oh, ten by Max at the end of LD&T and I am sure that we'll send a lot more than that.

10)  Please spread the word of "Operation:  Daisy Duke" around to other MBs and forums that have enthusiastic Gilmore supporters.  Some of the obvious boards are FanForum, the cwtv.com lounge, etc.  We don't want to annoy people, especially since there are people who post to multiple MBs.  But still, let us know which MBs it gets posted to and provide a link to this thread or to the Great 8 Mandate thread.  If you so desire, please copy this entire post to that forum.

Let's spread the word!  "Operation:  Daisy Duke" continues!

I can confirm that it is one of the two actual Jeeps used in the show.  It was purchased by a Warner Bros. tour guide.

I'm seriously considering putting in a bid...but I would be blowing my tuition money. I'll just tell my future children that the reason their mother dropped out of college and gave up all her life dreams was for a car from a show that they have never heard of.
