  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective phrase 19. The adjective phrase today is

  • eye-popping. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If something is eye-popping it

  • is so impressive or attractive, it makes someone's eyes protrude like

  • almost like stick out, protrude while looking at it. So sort of like wow. Kind

  • of like that. Or, I don't know kind of reminds me of Jim Carrey in "Mask." You

  • know, in the cartoons too, the eyes actually pop out. You know when they see something

  • that's very impressive or very exciting we say something is eye-popping. All right.

  • Let's look at several examples here. Example number one, Jennifer Lopez wore a

  • very low-cut eye-popping Versace dress at the 2000 Academy Awards that started the

  • fashion of the safety-pin dress. Yeah. I remember that. Of course. you know. it was

  • one of those dresses that looks like it could slide open very easily, and it was

  • really low-cut almost down to like where her navel was. I forget who she was

  • presenting an award with somebody at that time and I remember the actor

  • saying I don't know what i'm doing here nobody's looking at me. So of course

  • it was definitely considered to be an eye-popping dress. I know several other

  • celebrity females celebrities kind of copied this for a few years after. Its

  • kind of over now. But at one time that safety-pin dress ... I don't know how they

  • actually did it to stick, so that it doesn't open and show everything. But

  • obviously they have something in there that's kind of holding it. So they call

  • it a safety pin dress. So I don't know are they really using safety pins ? I

  • don't know that that sounds dangerous. It sounds like somebody might get stabbed

  • somewhere. But anyway that's the way they refer to it. But that was definitely an

  • eye-popping dress. Okay. Let's look at number two. Richard Burton gave Elizabeth

  • Taylor... remember when Elizabeth when they were

  • both still alive. Remember, Elizabeth Taylor married many many times, but she

  • married Richard Burton twice, and I remember there was a point where it was

  • very famous because he bought her this extremely

  • huge diamond ring. So Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor and eye-popping 33.1 9

  • carat diamond ring. Yes. Years ago we definitely say that was an eye-popping

  • ring. Oh my God ! Look at that. All right good,

  • and number three. He let her use you know, he let her use his credit card and

  • later he received an eye-popping bill. Ah What ? Oh my god ! Maybe she took advantage

  • of this. Okay anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time.

  • Bye-bye.
