This is a throwback to the first season of Grey’s Anatomy, way back in 2005.
My Boats Afloat poster appeared on the set, including in two scenes from the 2005 season opener
In 2005 I wrote on my then website…
In case you don’t watch TV, Grey’s Anatomy is a popular medical drama about overworked surgical interns and their sex lives set in a Seattle hospital. It’s entertaining, with lots of good looking characters. Sunday nights at 10pm (after Desperate Housewives).
15 more minutes (I mean seconds) of fame.
… My poster shows up on the third episode of Grey’s Anatomy, October 16, 2005. Izzy and Alex discuss going out right next to the Boats Afloat poster! Now I’m a big fan of the show and of course will watch the rest of the season to see if the poster appears again. The plot thickens… Will Dr. McDreamy choose Meredith or Addison? Will Alex pass his make-up exam? Tune in next week.
It’s impressive, in its 15th season, Grey’s Anatomy is still going strong. I was seriously hooked on the show for several seasons, and occasionally we’d spot the poster on the wall, but for some reason stopped watching it. So I don’t know what eventually happened to Dr. McDreamy or Meredith, or when they swapped out wall art.
The poster was one of several created in collaboration with Dirk Mynatt of GForce for the Northwest Yacht Broker’s Association.
Note: the use of the poster was a total surprise, and I’ve been asked if I was compensated for the use. Nope, I was not, and I did not pursue it.
