RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

My friend is one of the personalities on SpikeTV's Thrift Hunters show.
Tomorrow is their premier episode and it will feature the RAD tour jacket.

As many of you already know there was a domestic tour in support of the movie RAD back in 86'

Check it out or DVR it.

No, but these shows are all staged and set up like all reality tv. Still cool to see something from Rad.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

Yea, it was cool to see the jacket and to see the movie mentioned on TV . But I've been hearing about this show all week and was expecting/hoping to see something more than just the jacket. Oh well.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

Another thing, when they showed the jacket a little side box popped up with some info on the movie. It have the yr the movie came out and said how even though it was a financial flop that it has gained cult status. Hmm, and yet still no studio release on DVD roll

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

Here is the "Reality", not the "Actuality" on the jacket.

* On Spike the sellers screen indicates it sold for $700 on May 21.

* Ebay shows the listing ended a day earlier on May 20 with initial price of $1299.99 with best offer accepted.

* Ebay indicates a revision to the listing 7 days later on May 27 where the seller changed the Buy it Now price and ended the Sale.  Item#370811826221.

I'm confused, what really happened here?  Any Ebay experts?

My guess is the jacket came from a prop house and was *sold* back to the same prop house.

And that only the show and those close to the cast really know.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

You got to sell a bunch of $20 coffee mugs to pay for traveling all over the USA to buy shit. You do not find a RAD jacket everyday.
How much did it cost to go to Vegas? How many motel nights, meals, gas, car rental, etc... .
Good thing these guys are getting paid for the show or they would be bankrupt by now. 
They are going to the south for the next show. roll

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

I attended the ebay in convention in june 2013 in las vegas.  Jason showed a picture of the rad jacket that he sold for $700 to the audience.
Now, several months later, while watching a taping of thrift hunters, jason reaches into a barrel and lo and behold, comes up with a rad tour jacket identical to the one he'd displayed months before, announcing he's always wanted one on those.
Methinks something smells fishy in denmark and there is only one rad jacket that keeps appearing where it is needed.
Please explain!  Thank you.  I like this show but need to believe it's authentic and not misleading just for entertainment purposes.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

All those shows are fake. Storage Wars has been accused in the past of planting things in storage units. Ever notice on American Pickers when the two guys first approach someone's house the cameras are already set up in the yard? Or when they knock on someone's door the person acts like they don't know who they are yet there's cameras filming from behind in their living room roll Watch Hardcore Pawn once and you'll see how ridiculously phony these so called reality shows have gotten.

something else, if you notice them cut the lock on a storage bin and magically labels on boxes and other items are taped up

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

I have produced shows for TV. ALL staged. MAYBE some dialogue is legit, but the general thing is all scripted.
ALWAYS.
It's a bunch of work.
There's a $1-200K budget per episode, the talent gets about $5K per, and "exposure" and a "taste of merchandising".
The production company gets most of it, and the networks get fat on ad dollars/cable fees.
Notice how everyone sounds the same on the shows?
"So, I thought I'd better go check it out..."
Same patter, same flat tone...they are amateur actors, They always sound the same.
But, some of the shows are pretty entertaining...that's the talent.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

Container Wars is the worst scripted mess, same people buy all the big containers like the other shows... but yet i still watch. Yes Dave from Storage Wars said they use props from a company that loans them for a fee and some items are the players personal items. Some have said they attend the auctions then go back on the off days and recreate the bidding and go thru lockers the players bought when the crowds are out of the way. I wouldn't have a problem with that if they just disclosed that each week. I just saw the Rad episode, probably put up for sale and had a friend bid on it, then canceled the sale, idk though. If they had a legit buyer probably would have sold it.

Re: RAD the movie: tour jacket to appear on Thrift Hunters on Spike TV

That Jacket came out of a big blue bin of junk clothes. Notice that the jacket comes out nice, fresh and wrinkle free. roll
It's still good TV for us treasure hunters, even if it's fake.
