See, now I know this is just a little piece for fun from JR and likely not at all connected to the show, but this is the kind of stuff that bugs me because even buying into the AUE ending it's so messed up. Why would Ted in 2014 have the blue French horn? Didn't he give it back and it got locked up at that restaurant? And why should he be obsessing over it anyway and hanging it up in his bedroom while he's with Tracy? All of these things make no sense and they drive me crazy because it's like no one even made any attempt to try to make them make sense just like with the AUE. And for this particular video, why did they have to bring the French horn into it at all? He's wearing his Wesleyan t-shirt so we all understand he's being Ted Mosby without the need for that. They could have just as soon put him in a Cleveland jersey or had him at a drafting desk or something. WHY bring that horrible prop and all it stands for back into this?

Because my brain works in odd ways, my first thought was "this is exactly how Ted would react to another shot at AU Robin." Eh, maybe this is his room at the special facility, and a visiting Robin and Barney slowwwwwly back out of the room and agree never to speak of this again.

But seen as 2014 Ted, this makes no sense at all. He'd be with Tracy, and she sure as heck wouldn't want the blue French horn hanging around (would she even know what that meant?) even if Ted for some reason had it. I know, Josh had it, and they wanted to be funny, and yes, Ted would geek out over something like this, :shrug:

They've made multiple blue french horn continuity errors over the series like when Robin left it in her room after moving out but Ted had returned it. Yeah I knew the BFH would upset people.

Eh, I can excuse the BFH. Josh is using it because he took it from the set and has it and it's just something he has that links to the show.

Haha, I thought it was funny. And I guess he just used the blue french horn because it's become iconic with the show, but he just as soon could have used a yellow umbrella or something and been goofy with that. And if anything, Josh is poking fun at how ridiculous and over-the-top Ted can be sometimes. His emotions thing reminded me of his best man toast breakdown video.

That had me laughing so much. I just want to reitterate that my hatred for the AU ending and Ted has nothing to do with Josh.

Hee! That was cute.

Aww, I love Josh and this was funny!

I can also excuse the horn, he probably just wanted to distinguish Josh and Ted by adding something from the show, and the BFH happens to be what he took from set! :)
