Like Adam I said Goldfinger for FJ. I'm sure I was influenced by thinking of a James Bond movie as a possibility during the commercial break. Psycho didn't cross my mind, but it should have considering it's such a J! favorite. Sounds like using chocolate syrup for blood in Psycho is pretty well-known based on the posts so far. Now I know...

Learn to pay attention to the date twelvefootboy! :!:

I knew it was not 60's, and I knew it was wrong, but all I had was Carrie. I knew the Exorcist was pea soup, and also likely the 70's (never seen either- not my genre). I figured it was probably some artsy fartsy movie I never heard of. (We tried to watch "Blow Up" a couple of years ago - ugh - how do I get that hour back?)

I could'a got this if I'd thunk about the date, but not from the TOMs. If they'd left the melon out and said the sauce was a proxy for blood, maybe I'd have got there.

As a PSA, the melon was for the stabbing sound effect and the model was a booty double (disputed claims now).

Being a $2000 clue, I imagine many fall in the trap of "It can't be that easy..." (even at home when you can eat the neg without consequence)

Adam and Swapna appeared to be impersonating a pair of wax dummies from Madame Toussaud's in the first half of DJ. Thank goodness Swapna came to life in the second half to avoid a lock game.

A lot of younger viewers were probably scratching their heads after the FJ reveal. "How can chocolate syrup stand in as blood?" not knowing Psycho was filmed in B&W. Kids these days.

Kudos to Gene Simmons for really selling the KISS clues.
that is what he does...he sells...how else can you explain branding air guitar strings?
