Does anyone recognize this film? A man is trying to get the attention of his girlfriend by lighting some kind of bonfire on her lawn, but the sticks keep collapsing into the shapes of swastikas and other offensive symbols. Possibly, possibly this could be from a tv-on-dvd series but I don't think that would get by standards and practices. Humor level is "Something About Mary"-esque.

That's it! I rarely watch broadcast tv so I didn't think of that. Thanks!

That sounds like something that happened on an episode of My Name Is Earl as well, but I might be mistaken.

That never happened on Ed. It's my favorite TV show ever and I have every episode on tape.

It is from "My Name Is Earl" (StephenA, you triggered my memory).

Season 1, Episode 7 - "Stole Beer From a Golfer"

Well then, I mean "That's it!" this time. Really. (Actually when Mike said "Ed" I thought to myself he was being brief and had meant to say "My Name is Ed", which until the next post I was thinking was the title. "My Name is Earl" is of course the correct title). Good show. Can't wait for season one to come out; I've seen a couple episodes and loved what I saw.
