Fox Reality Original
Fox Reality Channel was a channel owned by the now-extinct Fox Entertainment Group that aired reality TV shows. It was launched on May 24, 2005 and was replaced by Nat Geo Wild on March 29, 2010 (on most providers), April 19, 2010 (on Dish Network), and June 30, 2010 (on DirecTV).
(May 24, 2005-June 30, 2010)
Nicknames: "The Lips of Satan", "Other SSL (Super Scary Lips)", "The Evil Laugh", "Stretch Films' Louder Cousin", "What's So Funny?", "The Mad Mouth"
Logo: On a vignetted white background, we see a pair of red lips, letting out a loud, evil-sounding laugh. The camera zooms out as we see a large, crudely-done turquoise circle, with the Fox logo at the top of the giant text "REALITY", with "ORIGINAL" under "ITY". The mouth morphs into the "O" of "ORIGINAL", and the word zooms in as the logo is finished.
- At the end of Fox Reality shows, the logo begins as it has fully zoomed out.
- On Solitary, the logo ends with a shut-off effect. The closing variant on the show also begins with said distortion effect.
FX/SFX: The live-action lips green-screened against the background, and the logo zooming out.
Music/Sounds: An unsettling loud laugh that vaguely resembles Goofy's holler, followed by a whoosh and a set of 2 clangs that repeats 3 times, in which became Fox Reality's signature sound.
Music/Sounds Variant: The short version cuts out the laugh.
Availability: Near extinction. It appeared on shows produced by the now-extinct network, such as Paradise Hotel 2 and Solitary. It may be seen on episodes of Solitary on Amazon Prime.
Editor's Note: None.
