HEY JAKE, DID YOU REMEMBER TO GET SOME SAN PELLEGRINO?

Because I think they have a sale on. I know it's your favourite.

LOL! I saw the San Pellegrino entry when I was reading through Jake Watch history yesterday, and was wondering if you were going pick that up. :D

So much mineral water they had to put some outside!Italian products sure have found the best market possible. And the best buyer.In.The.World.

chickpea said...

oh look, the tee color matches the stripes on his pants *aww*

what the heck is that white sign thing which looks like hanging in the air in front of his legs?

JoyceDavenport said...

Jake has heard that Britpop became addicted to San Pellegrino on holiday in Italy and knowing her capacity to knock it back is stocking up before the shortage hits.

JoyceDavenport said...

Um Britpop- he looks a bit pissed in that pic- enough to cross of a square in paparazzi bingo?

britpopbaby said...

I think he just looks a little irked that he missed the San Pellegrino sale - buy one get twenty free from the looks of it.

Kendra said...

At this moment, I abandon my consume of "Font Vella" and "Solán de Cabras" mineral waters. I'm a "San Pellegrino" newbie now, I hope to find that brand in Spain.

Oh, how I wish he'd bump his shopping cart into mine.

But my local A&P is far less upscale than whatever store he frequents. Look at that faux-stone lion's head poised over a basin, in an attempt at providing the atmosphere of a European fountain at an outdoor market. Instead of that, my A&P has a row of machines for returning cans & bottles, which emanate the smell of cheap beer.

I lost a very nice amber & silver earring in the parking lot there last week. I'm sure I'll never get it back. At Jake's store, in Jake's neighborhood, I bet I would.

There seems to be a surplus of the stuff on the west coast. Perhaps they bathe in it?

JoyceDavenport said...

Maybe it's for Boo's house with the pool- we all know how he likes to be pampered- tap water is probably just not on for Boo- best quality mineral water or I aint dipping my paw in it.

Simon Agent 002 said...

There's a catchy radio jungle they have for San Pellegrino

Dinner at 8
San Pellegrino

Blah blah blah, BLAH
San Pellegrino

it's powerful enough to burn it's self into your memory, just not well enough to remember the words
I'll bet WtbGirl knows it. the newsradio station 880am runs the ad all the time.'

tankergirl said...

Paper AND Plastic??!!!!
Shame on you, Jake!

nice anonymous said...

I've heard that San Pellegrino ad on the NY Times radio station! The singer has a sort of brassy blonde 60s nightclub singer sound. (You can imagine the Rat Pack grooving to her.)

JoyceDavenport said...

tankergirl I don't think paper or plastic on their own would have held that number of bottles- and we wouldn't want them falling on his tootsies- would we?

However another serious saftey hazzard is revealed by this pic. Having bought that load of shopping he would need means to carry it home. By car. In his flipflops?

Jake I'm sure flipflop driving is not safe. What if it slippped and caught round the accelerator. Does Naomi know you drive in flipflops- bet she wouldn't approve. We need to get a Jake Watch operative on the case to ensure he has appropriate footwear on for all occasions- imagine if there was a flipflop disaster- would we ever forgive ourselves?

Simon Agent 002 said...

Yes, Nice Anom that's it!
but I only remember one line. :(
I'll have to tune in. I hope they still play it?
Or else it will drive me crazy all day! lol

Jake's looks great! And speaking of him as best dressed, Jake is 4th on the Esquire list of best dressed men!

Anonymous said...

Oops, sorry that last link was the wrong thing, here is the correct link to Jake on the Esquire Best Dressed list!

nice anonymous said...

Simon, just for you:

http://www.mannixmusic.com/bio.html

There's a link here to a recording of the San Pellegrino jingle.

Simon Agent 002 said...

^^Oh thank you just spared me hours of torment.

nice anonymous said...

Suddenly imagining handsome Jake, channeling a Dean Martin/Tony Bennett vibe, singing the "San Pellegrino" jingle at a night club. Swinging the cord of the mike, snapping his fingers. Looking like he's secretly beholden to the mafia. Flirting with a mobster's girlfriend in the front row.

He'd look great, damn it.

If Jake can't host "Saturday night Live," couldn't he be a guest star on the Sopranos?

Frank Sinatra said...

I sang in a few clubs myself.
Anyone wanna come fly with me?

nice anonymous said...

Sorry for forgetting you even for a minute, Frank.

Why does Jake have to do a biopic of Lance? Why not play Ol' Blue Eyes?

I want Jake in a movie where he wears a tux, since he looks so good in them. Has he ever played an elegant guy -- or just scruffy, intense, sort of outcast types on the edge of receiving public assistance?

The Bearded Lady said...

My Frank, what large hands you have.
I guess those rumors
are true?

Ivy said...

Oh bleedin' hell, I was going to write a very witty water-related comment to accompany this post, but then I got completely sidetracked by those photoshopped pics and forgot what I was going to put.

But yeah, erm, it's very important to keep oneself hydrated . . . oh sod it!

eight said...

wow, i started drinking san pellegrino a few years ago because i thought it would be ok to order that instead of a drink when i go out b/c i don't like much liquor. my friends found this pretentious.

now that jake drinks it it's got extra special meaning to me. doesn't taste so special really....

SquallCloud said...

Jake looks pretty in red. Is this old? He's got manimal length facial hair. Also, the DC is having a bar b que so those of us that are left behind are dealing with slow moving threads for the first time in months. Just wanted you all to know that so that you could step up the posting here and entertain me. :oD

Frank Sinatra said...

Look Beard Lady,
or what ever you call yourself.
I'm dead, and your lewd comments are kinda creeping me out here.

The Bearded Lady said...

Oh Frank,
Miss Bearded Lady's is now crestfallen.
As I am 104, I will be nearer to you than you think soon.

JoyceDavenport said...

^^^ Squall- that is the latest hot off the press pic.

SquallCloud said...

Thanks JD! *swooon*

Smurfeyshmoo said...

I'm really liking the red shirt. I mean, REALLY. I had a horrified moment, however, when I thought Jake was wearing white capri jean pant things. Ones like my mother has. My mom can pull the look off. I'm afraid Jake, for all his gorgeous-ness, can not. Luckily, sigh of relief, those are not white capri jean pant things. Good aversion, Jake.

Anonymous said...

SquallCloud,the piccie is not old.According to the blurb it was wednesday.Red does suit him.Sexy!!!

dani said...

He looks great. Wish he wasn't behind that basket!

only1annabel said...

Yay you posted it! I like to think I had something to do with it...that is unless you didn't get my email and are actually more aware of Jake photos on the net than I am! Yeah thgats probably it! Anyway its still a cute photo and he looks fine!!

moonbeams said...

Actually, this pic was taken at the Bristol Farms Gourmet Emporium in WeHo where Jake just start his part time job as a bagger boy. They only need him for the days when Barbra Streisand stops in...she's kind of particular about who handles her bags...he enjoys it bcz it keeps him in touch with what's "real." The gorgeous red shirt with white shorts was his idea. Says it lends a kind of panache to the experience...

Nothing Really Matters said...

Is that a natural spring of San Pellegrino at the back behind Jake?

Simon Agent 002 said...

that would be cool...I think it's one of those fountains you stick your hand in and it bites it.
like the scene in "Roman Holiday"

Anonymous said...

OMG! It is on sale!! 99 cents/ bottle www.bristolfarms.com/weeklyspecials/index.html

Simon Agent 002 said...

It would make a interesting bath...bubbly in a different sort of way.
Come on NY and LA free up the supplies for everyone else.

I'm so glad he finally found work! I've been worred about that boy! ;-)

^Moonbeams,11:35 AM

If I ever encountered Streisand in the supermarket aisle, I freeze in shock, drop what ever was in my hands at the time, and possible wet myself tho, in which order all this would occur would only be known at the time.

moonbeams said...

Why, actually, TBL, that's exactly what dear Babs did do when Jake walked up to her and said, "Here. Let me help you with that..."
Bristol Farms is really pleased with Jake's performance. Their business has more than tripled, altho, they've had to add Depends to their inventory...lots of women of a certain age have rediscovered Bristol Farms. But inside each package of Depends, there is a large bottle of San Pelligrino, so it all works out really well. (Pics with Betty White on Iheartjake.)

The Bearded Lady said...

Are you sure that was Barbra?
She has a personal swat team of decoys, to put unwanted attention on the wrong path.
I think she's here in the studio performing.

moonbeams said...

TBL: It was indeed Babs. There were three members of her SWAT team with her, tho one remained in the car. But alas. They too, froze, dropped Babs' arms which they were holding, and peed all over the floor when confronted by The Sex....Jake must be commended for his mental agility. He doused all of them with San Pellegrino, gallons of it, then put it on her tab.

The Bearded Lady said...

^^ I just have seen the series of photos.
I'd like to point out that he thoughtfully returns his cart, when he is done with it.
Not leaving it out where some other car can bang into it.
Once when I was a cashier and bagger.
I had a friend which I was trying to get their attention at the time.
While they were in the store. I was collecting shopping carts...which I arranged around my friend's car. (a tiny 1981 honda civic)...the car was so small the roof came up to your waist.
Well on upon return they discovered their car buried in a ring of carts at least five deep.

PS Soda water is excellent for removing urine stains.

"Instead of that, my A&P has a row of machines for returning cans & bottles, which emanate the smell of cheap beer."

Each time I read this I laugh all over again!
That aroma is not an exclusive to the "A&P" supermarket chain.
Dear Anon, you could feel right at home at the local Stop & Shop here. :)LOL

Perhaps they could upscale this can return process?
Faux-stone return machine?
A Medusa head with a large open mouth to accept the returns.
Once deposited, it could make a pre-recorded burping/belching sound.
All of course to encourage the public to recycle! :)
