Hey! That's my _______ in the movie!

Have you ever seen a movie and noticed something you own in it? I was watching some movie recently and I noticed my Ikea lamp was in the background (one of the cheap ones that's like $7). The set was supposed to be some sort of fancy-schmancy place so that really made me .

Also, in Charlie's Angels 2, Bernie Mac has the same remote control I do.

Have you noticed something like this?

The quilt on Wendy's bed on the Peter Pan ride at Disney World. I'm such a rube I must have ridden that thing 4 or 5 times to point it out to people.

for some reason, in all the movies i have seen... all the guys are wearing my socks
There is a master key and a spare key for the office. Dwight has them both. When I asked, "what if you die, Dwight? How will we get into the office?" He said, "if I'm dead, you guys have been dead for weeks."

I remember seeing Tony Soprano use my universal remote (back-asswards, BTW).

In the same episode, the Feds swept his basement using my Radio Shack SPL meter.

That's my shoulder in Remember the Titans. Oh, and my answering machine is used in countless films (and doesn't sound at all like the audio used).

I used to have the Panasonic phone from the scene in Zoolander where Mugatu and Derek first meet in Mugatu's building.

One of the guys in Jeepers Creepers 2 was wearing the exact same style t-shirt that I had (and I had mine way before the movie came out). If I had the movie, I do a screen cap. It's a gray t-shirt with a thin black/white raised line going across the chest.

In High Fidelity John Cusak has the same Panasonic 8-track deck I have. In the movie they have the Record button taped down so the machine stays lit up.

My parents had the same kind of toaster that was in the contraption in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, when the movie came out.

I got a Halloween mask at Toys-R-Us at the last minute that looks very similar to the one the killer wears in the "Scream" movies, but I bought it about 3 years before the first movie came out.

I own the exact same bed that Ray and Debra sleep in on "Everybody Loves Raymond".

In a more humorous vein, everytime I see Naomi Watts, I always say, "Hey! That's my sex slave in the movie!"

Seen my old cordless phone a couple times. But one funny thing was in a video game where you could customize your tennis player they had my exact same shirt that I wore somewhat frequently. Thought it was funny.

In Road Trip, the main character has the same exact phone I used to have in high school, with a completely different ringer though.

Not a movie but one of the terrorists on 24 had my cell phone last year. Now I got a new one and Tony Soprano has my cell phone. What does that say about me?
