Ecstasy is some Tetris movie that I probably would've never watched, but now that this image has been leaked from a screening...I dunno. I suppose Jeff is only there for a few seconds though right? Anyways, here's the image taken by Chris Kohler:

From CES 1992

I would love to know the context behind this image, because as it stands, it's confusing as hell

He looks like a mobster in a really low-budget 80s movie. Fantastic.

Yeah, even that expression is exactly the same. Wait, does this mean Jeff's an android?

Oh my gosh. My brain just exploded from seeing that. Jeff may look a -tad- different, but he's almost exactly the same with that demeanor and smirk!

Is that a blazer? I've never seen Jeff class it up like that, except for tracksuits.

It's a video of CES 1992, which was Jeff's first CES.

We've got to wait for the blu-ray to come out for that, we can't go around photoshopping with low-quality pictures now, can we?!

If I remember correctly, Jeff says he wore it to look older and like he was supposed to be at those trade shows like CES when he was younger

See, now this is just the sort of thing that trips me out about a lot of people I've seen. They look old! Well maybe old's the wrong word. They look mature! Like adults! When they're young! Even when they're young adults! All my life I've been seeing "high school" folks in TV shows who look like college students. Well now I'm older and know that they're are plenty of older actors who act in younger roles, but that doesn't change the real life high schoolers I see on TV that look like college students.

And then there's the college students that look like older blue/white collars. But on the flipside you've also got people in suits working in cubicles who look like youngins! IT'S A MAD HOUSE I TELL YA.

Yet everyone I knew from high school looked about how old I'd expect them to look. And in University it's the same thing.

*sigh* Anyways. Jeff kinda looks like that there. He looks like I'd expect him to look at his age now though. Also, he looks like a real rascal in that shot. Look at that sly smirk! He's up to something.

OK this all just struck me as odd. I'm going to bed. Maybe.

With that blazer, Jeff would make the perfect replacement for Reggie Fils Aime.

Jeff and Ryan really should wear blazers more often.

And to think he eventually went from King Swag of Princeton to bleach-blond hair & tracksuits... Talk about a fall from grace.

IIRC he talked about this in a Jar Time. Anyway, this makes this relevant again:

This just goes to prove that we all end up getting fatter with age. I did, and so did Jeff.

It's a good thing all that fat made us 100 times more fucking awesome.
