Mom and dad had no clue whatsoever that they were filming another movie at Tybee Island last week. When they arrived and checked into the hotel, they saw a lot of tractor and trailers parked with the sign to the left on them. They’ve made several movies here so mom and dad got excited. They
snooped asked around and were told what was being filmed. How awesome. How exciting.
Then they did some walking around themselves and saw this trolley to the right that mom immediately took a picture of… can you guess what the movie is? Can you? Would you be surprised to learn that they are filming the next Sponge Bob Squarepants 2 movie in the Savannah and Tybee Island area? For real!
How could mom and dad miss this in their trip planning? And they found out that the week before they arrived, Antonio Banderas was doing his shots as a pirate. What?! How could they miss out on all of the wonderful fun. Right?
So the movie comes out in 3D in 2014. Mom/dad knew they missed it by arriving late for the game. But they were going to enjoy the beach nonetheless.
So Monday, mom/dad decide to walk around the beach, enjoying the sun and surf. They walked down to the Tybee pier and skipped the steps going for the direct walk up. There wasn’t any people around so mom does like I do – puts her head down and charges on – snorts.
They passed someone that looked faintly familiar. There was someone in front of this person and another behind the person. Mom continues on dragging daddy behind her. She says, “Hey” to the people. They reply hey back. I mean heck she is from the south – you gotta be friendly, right? Then the person in the middle is in a blacked out van and whisked away.
Mom looked at daddy and said, “Who was that?” Dad says describ him (because you know he can’t see very well). Mom describes him – all in black, black top hat, black, long curly hair, black glasses – dad stops her immediately. What? Say that again to which she did. About the same time, one of the people that had walked him down from the pier said in their walkie-talkie, “Slash to base camp.”
Holy batman – it was Slash, the rock guitarist from Guns N’ Roses. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know who he was either. Mom didn’t – snorts. I had to see a picture to remind myself of who he was. I’m adding this one so you know too. He did a cameo in the new movie. And mom saw him. In fact, she could have flicked him on the ear as daddy said. It was that quick. And you know how daddy can be funny. It was a quick meet but if given the chance daddy was going ask Slash to take a picture with Bashful because you know it would make him famous – snorts.

My son will think I am making this up when I tell him first. I love Mr Square Pants, probably in the same way your Mom likes Minnie Mouse. I mean, well of course I like MM but SB? We have the movie and one of the bests things about Mr SP apart from his upbeat, quirky personality and his total disregard for physics is the music. We have the music album from the first movie too.
I am so excited! I shall tell everyone about this and they won’t believe me until they “click” themselves. 🙂

It was really exciting for mom/dad. This is not the first movie they have done in the area but it is the first one mom/dad saw someone famous there. They absolutely could not believe it. And it was so fast! Daddy said afterwards that he would have liked to asked Mr Slash if he would have taken a picture with Bashful cause it might make him (Mr Slash) famous – snorts. Silly daddy! XOXO – Bacon

I think Bashful is already quite famous even without a photo of him with Slash…….!

Aaww you are so good to us my friend. XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 6:49 am
That’s sooo cool. Did your mummy and daddy manage to get in any scenes?
11/06/2013 at 7:20 am
I’m not sure if there will be any of them but they were on the pier when shooting. There were lots of them that were told to act naturally. Snorts – that’s hard for my mom and dad. XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 8:32 am
Mum and dad are celebrity snoopers extraordinaire 🙂 pity Bashful didn’t get a pic with Slash heheeheh I always laugh at the name as it’s Aussie slag for having a wee…it’s Doc and Forrests cue to go for one haahahahha so lucky they weren’t there when someone called his name hahahaah have a great day sweet Bacon hugs Fozziemum xxx
11/06/2013 at 9:57 am
Snorts. I shall now call it slash when I have to go potty my friend – snorts. That is too funny. Daddy wanted to tell Mr. Slash that if he had his picture taken with Bashful he could be famous. That would have been hilarious to see the look on Mr. Slash’s face. It was a fun trip. I wonder if I can get out and meet Jimmy Dean – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 6:21 pm
Indeed I would imagine it would have made Slash laugh his butt off……you never know who you may meet Bacon….6 degrees of separation my friend 🙂 HUgs Fozziemum xx
11/06/2013 at 6:26 pm

Your humans saw Slash? That is pretty exciting, and I happen to think he would have taken a picture with Bashful. Your humans could have told Slash that Bashful is a long-lost Rolling Stone. 😉
11/06/2013 at 9:58 am
Snorts – that would have been so funny. The meeting was so fast. I don’t think mom/dad were suppose to be where they ended up at. But, we all know my humans – they get into the funniest situations. As daddy said, mommy was sold close she could have flicked Mr. Slash on the ear – now *that* would have been funny! XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 8:54 am
Bob and me we aren’t friends since I swallowed his brother and we had an emergency case :o) But Slash is pretty cool – I like his music, the song “gotten” he made to support homeless youth is great, but very touching :o) Wish Bashful had the chance to get a photo together with Slash: Rocker meets Rock LOL
11/06/2013 at 9:59 am
I know right! That would have been a hoot. My silly mom – she didn’t even know who he was. She looked, smiled and was charming by saying hey in her southern drawl. She had to describe him to daddy and daddy was awestruck. It was just so very fast! XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 9:26 am
I’m very well aware of who Slash is, and think that’s cool your folks got to see him! Good thing it wasn’t his bandmate Axl Rose, or he might have started another riot….
11/06/2013 at 10:01 am
That is true my friend. It was such an interesting day. Mom and dad thought they were just going to take their daily stroll up the pier and saw him being whisked away in an undisclosed blackened out van. It was fun. He even came back the last day mom/dad were at the beach to do another scene. They didn’t see him that date. XOXO – Bacon

I love Sponge Bob, and all his friends. Very cool! Ha, ha on Slash. I knew the band, but really don’t know the members – and wouldn’t recognize any of them either!
11/06/2013 at 10:01 am
Mom didn’t either! It was too funny. She thought he was dressed funny and that was what amused her – my silly mom. We love that little Sponge Bob though – he’s a riot! XOXO – Bacon

We do too!! He makes me squeal with delight! XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 10:33 am
OMG! Bacon, cover your ears…this is for your mom…Slash is um. er. RIGHT UP MY ALLEY! He, along with Ian Astbury from The Cult really “get my motor runnin'”…wait…wrong band…but you know what I am saying! Wonka wonka!
11/06/2013 at 10:41 am
OMP (oh my pig). I’m not sure what all of that meant but daddy is laughing his butt off for some reason. In fact, he says he’s fixing to call mommy and read this to her. Whatever it means, you made my humans laugh like crazy – thank you my friend. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. You humans are strange. wonka wonka? Have you been watching too much Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Shakes piggy head and walks away.

ive always wanted to go on a trolley!
11/06/2013 at 11:08 am
It was the coolest trolley. Mommy said that it was parked behind all of the Paramount trucks and was used in one of the scenes. It would have been a hoot to ride in! XOXO – Bacon
11/06/2013 at 9:20 pm
Very impressed with the brush with fame! I’ve been listening to Slash’s new album, lately. AWESOME!
11/07/2013 at 9:02 am
Thank you. Mom/dad are always getting into trouble. This time it was kind of hilarious because mom had NO clue. XOXO – Bacon

Whoa Bacon…mom and dad are now celebrities? That’s just pawsome. Tell your folks to have a great time on the vacay and don’t get caught up in the puparazzi. 🙂

Snorts! This was from last year when they met Slash. It was a great vacation. No way they would go and leave this little oinker right now. No way. XOXO – Bacon
