For those ‘How I Met Your Mother’ fans out there, have you ever wondered about the many websites that are mentioned in the episodes?
Having decided to watch the show for the 7th time, I suddenly became more aware of the many websites that the characters mention during the show. Out of pure boredom and curiousity, I decided to test out one of the mentioned websites by typing it out in real life and hitting enter to see if it actually exists. To my surprise, the show has successfully managed to run websites to most of the links mentioned by the characters in the series.
The first time I heard a suggested website being mentioned I jumped at the opportunity to see if it existed by abruptly pausing the show, opening a new tab, rushfully typing out the said website and hitting enter.
The webpage was absolutely hilarious, I spent ages laughing and reading the texts as well as jumping from tab to tab in order to discover what more there could be to this already creative site.
