  • (Computer Voice)Tommy, please get some Mr. Sketch

  • scented markers. Smell them one at a time

  • and guess the color.

  • (Tommy) One at a time, guess the -- you know what?

  • I can certainly give it a go.

  • Here we are in front of me we have nice magic markers all layed out here.

  • There are nine basic colors.

  • They're said to all have a distinct different smell, and my job is

  • to see how many I can guess. Just by smelling the marker. I have no idea what they are.

  • Um, but I'm about to find out by smelling them.

  • So, how many do you think I'll get? Play along it'll be fun.

  • And me? I think I'll get just under half

  • I'll get four out of nine. (bell)

  • Here we go. First one.

  • Open her up.

  • Mmm, what does that smell like? Wait.

  • It's like a can of Hawaiian Punch or something like that.

  • Ooh, you know, I'm going to write all over my face

  • playing this stupid game.

  • All right, I'm going to say this is red.

  • (buzzer) No, not there.

  • All right, fine.

  • (Computer Voice) The marker should smell like a lemon.

  • So the color is... yellow.

  • (Tommy) It does. Now that you mention it. It does. It smells like Pledge.

  • Let's play another one. Here we go. (bell)

  • And now a little sniff.

  • Mmm, what is that?

  • Mmm... I don't know.

  • Maybe that's more of a red smell...

  • of a cherry smell. You know what,

  • I'm going to try red again. I'm going to say this is red.

  • (buzzer) Again, no. What color was this?

  • (VOX) The marker should smell like an orange.

  • Ah, it does -- you know, when you say it.

  • It does smell sort of like an orange. (VOX) So the color is...

  • Orange. (bell)

  • Let's see how we do this time.

  • Mmm... it's very distinct.

  • I'm going to guess that that smells

  • like grape. Therefore,

  • if I know my fruit and colors right... it would be purple?

  • (buzzer) No! God...

  • What is it? (VOX) The marker should smell like a cherry.

  • (Tommy) This game is not easy. (VOX) So the color is... red.

  • (Tommy) There's the red I've been looking for.

  • Now that's out of mix.

  • (bell)

  • Next color.

  • Mmm... wait a minute. This one might work.

  • Okay. I've got a guess. I'm going to say.

  • It smells like black licorice, therefore it would be...

  • black. (Correct answer bells) Hey! I got one!

  • How about that? (bell)

  • Mmm... I know that smell. What is that?

  • I am going to say...

  • I'm going to say that this color smells rather minty

  • so therefore it would be green.

  • (Correct answer bells) Hey! Look at me go! I'm on fire!

  • Tie ball game, now. Two right and two wrong.

  • Here's the next one. (bell)

  • Oooh, let's see.

  • All right. I'm going to say

  • that these people made this supposed to be

  • Oh, I don't know. I'm not feeling confident here, but I'm going

  • to go... it smells kind of like chocolate.

  • So I will say brown. (buzzer) No! Not brown.

  • (VOX) The marker should smell like a watermelon.

  • (Tommy) So what color is a watermelon? I will say

  • that a watermelon is...

  • pink. (VOX) Correct.

  • (Tommy) Hey! How about that? I get a half a point for that. Come on! (VOX) Not a chance.

  • (bell)

  • (Tommy) Oh, I'm going to stop right here. That is purple.

  • That smells like grape. It's got to be purple.

  • I'm locking it in. (buzzer)

  • No way! (VOX) The marker should smell like

  • a blueberry. (Tommy) So, therefore the color is blue.

  • Listen, you might say I blew this one! (laughs)

  • All right, a couple more left. I'm doing great so far.

  • I've gotten two right out of all these. So let's try another one.

  • (bell)

  • See, the problem is, this late in the game everything is starting to smell the same.

  • It smells like magic marker without the "far-out" part. (laughs)

  • All right, I know we haven't had a purple.

  • We haven't had like a -- we've had black, but we haven't had a brown.

  • So, I'm going to say that this is the grape. I'm going to say that finally

  • this is purple. Grape. Purple is my final answer.

  • (correct answer bells) Hey! Look at me go!

  • I may get to my goal of four. Who knows.

  • One color to go. Oh my god, can you feel the tension?

  • All right, our final one here. I've gotten three out of eight.

  • (bell)

  • Okay, the pressure is one. Here we go.

  • Uh oh. All right, so what haven't we had?

  • There's been no brown, right? There's been no white.

  • There's really not been a gray. I feel like I smell a mint to it,

  • but you know, maybe there's like a chocolatey thing to it to.

  • I'm going to go all in. Final answer. It smells like chocolate.

  • Therefore... brown.

  • (VOX) The marker should smell like cinnamon. (Tommy) Cinnamon?

  • So then the -- (VOX) So the color is... brown.

  • (VOX) Congratulations.

  • (Tommy) Oh, wow! Wait, so the smell is --

  • See, I didn't know cinnamon was brown. (VOX) You just won. (correct answer bells)

  • (Tommy) I just won! Hurray! I did what exactly what I said I would do.

  • And that would be get four out of nine. Not bad.

  • (credits music)

  • All these different colors and smells,

  • my nose, my god.

  • I wish somebody would just fart or something to clean out my nose. (laughs)

(Computer Voice)Tommy, please get some Mr. Sketch
