On Tumblr they say that Supernatual has a gif for anything. So people who know nothing at all about the show find their posts taken over by random pictures of cute guys saying (and doing) things that, to the untrained eye, look pretty unlikely.

For example:

and:

But that is not the only way that the show breaks out of its corner of the TV viewing world. Probably the most legendary time was the 'Lucifer is Coming' Twitter incident of 2009.

As a tribute to the start of Season 5 the fans got this phrase trending on Twitter. It freaked out a lot of people, who, not knowing it was Supernatural, started tweeting back 'God is Here' (apparently Puff Daddy/P. Diddy started it, and went on about using God's army to defeat the devil). In the end Twitter got enough complaints that the topic was removed altogether.

So here's my question. Have you ever seen Supernatural referenced somewhere unlikely or unusual. Where it is an in-joke or just a misuse? Or something about the show was misunderstood by the outside world?

I have seen Sam and Dean in their white doctors' coats used for a poster in a hospital surgery (which I know I won't be able to find), and I have seen Jensen (so not really Supernatural, but close) used in a hair-restorer commercial ... they photoshopped him with a tonsure and put it on a giant billboard in India (possibly, maybe not) ... I am not going to post that because I think it is awful and I know they tried to get it removed .. but that sort of thing DOES happen!

I have a few examples (I hope) but if you have any, feel free to share!

Here is the one that got me thinking about this today. I have been playing a fun little game called 'Fallout Shelter' (which I recommend if you are short of something to do - it's free) and while looking around for advice on a particular aspect of the game I found an article on Kokatu.
In Fallout Shelter it automatically names new characters for you...but you can change them if you feel so inclined. This is one such example
Someone's been watching Caged Heat I think...
(oh yeah, the babysitter's outfit ... well, while the game is mostly not tooooo sexist, when you want to increase the charisma of a character (because one of your jobs is increasing the population of your shelter) that outfit is one of the ways of doing it. And it's a free game so complaining to them seems a little churlish :) )
Anyhoo... Here's the article so you can see for yourself: http://kotaku.com/the-funniest-things-that-can-happen-in-fallout-shelter-1712578469

This is a game called Labyrinths of the World - this is a game within it... do you see the amulet?

(I am not able to load pictures in large form because they are downloaded on my computer ... I will see if I can fix it.)

This is another free game, it is an escape the room game with the imaginative title of 'You Must Escape'... this is level 17, and there it is. While there are potential 'nothing to do with Supernatural' explanations of other things I have seen this one is difficult to explain away. Except as someone doing the artwork or programming or whatever for this game wanting to make their allegiance known:

These are funny! I always suspect that Supernatural doesn't exist in the real world. I mean, I see the ads in the subway for OTHER CW shows... I guess I figure a portal just opens up from another dimension on Thursday nights and lets it slip through?

I didn't realize you are a gamer. I'll bet you are JUST THE PERSON to advise me on the game I am planning to make, "Escape From Purgatory."

Oh, here's another screencap. Yeah, all I've done so far is drawn a few face pics and some purgatory trees...

Thanks! I like digital art but I'm slow. ^_^

I don't need a mechanics expert so much as someone to bounce ideas off of and say what would be fun. My idea is that at first it goes back and forth between Dean in Purgatory trying to stay alive & find Cas, and Sam getting advice from Kevin on how to get to Dean which would involve finding various items like the Purgatory Tablet. And it's Game Over if he hits a dog! And then when the brothers plus Cas are united in Purgatory it's more survival and monster fighting until they... get to the exit? Do you think Purgatory has a day/night cycle? Do you have to eat when you're there? I'm thinking yes, because why would all those monsters attack unless they wanted to eat Dean or drink his blood or whatever? Are there ecosystems of living plants and animals? What happens to the monsters when they die, do they just regenerate after awhile?



One of my ideas is that Sam has to choose from various items to take to Purgatory but he can only take what will fit in his duffel, so there's no wrong choice, but the gameplay will be different depending on if you bring the ax or the flashlight, the pie or the box of borax, two silver knives or one shotgun, etc.



I upload pics to imgur and post them from there.

Also how did you manage to post those? Do you have them online somewhere? I could post my images on Tumblr and then crosspost I suppose? I forgot that's how I did it before ....

Well now I play a fair few games but I can't claim to be a mechanics expert at all...

These are really nice graphics! Your drawing skills are great :D What is the game's description?

People are so talented it always amazes me!
