Those Are Fake Jans
I have been sucked into a vortex of 70s entertainment - a heady world of sparkle and spandex, glitter and glam, chintz and cheese. I have just returned from the Brady Bunch Variety Hour.
The reason for this is 'Fake Jan'.
Today I came across a funny web ad for the Fake Jan Festival on the Brady World site. Curious, I clicked and found out that there is actually a 'Fake Jan Day'. It was declared on Jan the 2nd (get it?) a couple of years ago and seems to be increasing in popularity.
For those not in the know, after The Brady Bunch finished in 1974, it was revived a couple years later as a musical 'variety hour'. Eve Plumb did not wish to appear and Geri Reischl replaced her when the show launched in October of 1976 - she was to become known as 'Fake Jan'.

You can find out more about the Fake Jan Festival on the website. Regular readers will know that I'm still in the process of truly and fully experiencing the Brady Bunch for the first time. I'm holding off on the variety hour until I complete the series but I couldn't resist some sneak peeks on youtube. Prepare your eyes for the visual assault:
