Losing Horn Versions
« on: July 25, 2020, 03:20:48 PM »
The TPIR losing horns have become an internet meme, and the most popular version of it in the online community is this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jz1TjCphXE

But was this particular version ever actually used on the show? When I first heard it many years ago, I thought maybe it was a version used in the 70's, before the more familiar version of the Barker era was used. Heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjOQZECdiO0

But watching a lot of 70s episodes, the "slide" at the end does not sound the same as it does in the "meme" version of the horns. If the "meme" version is not actually from Price itself, what are the origins of that version?

If you look in the "Moog Reel - 1972" and "Reel One - 1972" sections of the TPIR listings over on the TVPMM Vault, you'll see that there were multiple takes of the losing horns.

I honestly felt the "meme" version was a low quality format of this variant of the horns...

In particular, those horns I linked were also a common sight on the 70s-80s Card Sharks whenever contestants busted in the Money Cards.
