Hey, remember when everybody thought the world was going to end on December 21st, 2012? And some people really thought the world was going to end, and they focused their whole lives on getting ready for it? You should remember that, it wasn’t that long ago. Oh, and there was an episode of Wife Swap about it (not that you should, but if you wanted to, the episode might be on YouTube and it might be TOTALLY WORTH IT). Come on, you guys totally remember this.
Here’s what Spencer himself had to say about his behavior in the months and years leading up to December 21st:
“We made and spent at least 10 million dollars. The thing is, we heard that the planet was going to end in 2012. We thought, we have got to spend this money before the asteroid hits.
“Here’s some advice, definitely do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. But the world didn’t end.
“I would give my friends $15,000 for their birthday. Just cash. I would buy people cars. Every valet I met got a couple of hundred pounds tip. I would pay people $200 just to open doors for us.”
I love how he said that they “heard the planet was going to end.” It seemed like most people who thought the world was going to end were a lot more adamant about it, you know? Like “the world is ending, prepare for the end times, this is definitely, 100% for sure happening!” But Spencer and Heidi just heard about it somewhere, I guess. It must have sounded pretty legit to them.
But guys, please heed Spencer’s advice and do not spend your money thinking asteroids are coming. If you can take one thing away from this whole story, please let it be that.
