TLC Hastens Apocalypse With "Watch and Sniff" Promotion

If it weren't quite bad enough that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (which as you may have managed to block from your memory, is a spin-off from Toddlers and Tiaras, another show that continues to exist) is returning to assault the minds of Americans on July 17, the twisted minds over at TLC are kicking it up a notch ... with scratch and sniff cards.

You’ve seen them. You’ve heard them. Now you will smell them. TLC’s premiere of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO will be a Watch ‘n Sniff event that will treat viewers’ senses to the diverse and fragrant smells found in rural McIntyre, GA. Just in time for the heat of summer, fans can catch a whiff of the only television event of its kind.

“We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to kick off the new season than with two Watch ‘n Sniff episodes,” said Amy Winter, general manager of TLC. “The family loves coming up with crazy games and hijinks, so now our audience gets to play along with one. It’s an experience they certainly won’t want to miss!”

With a numbered scent card that correlates to scenes in the double-stacked premiere episodes, viewers will be able to watch the show, scratch their cards and redneckognize the aromas associated with the Boo Boo gang as they welcome the sights, sounds and smells of summer.

Cards will be available in People and US Weekly prior to the airing of the two episodes, but just a helpful reminder: They say smell is the sense that creates the most lasting memories. You might not be able to wash McIntyre, Georgia out of your brain by just huffing the scent of coffee beans.
