One Newspaper Fits All

Recently discovered by a Reddit member and now making its way around the internet, these are all screen shots from sitcoms using the EXACT SAME newspaper pages. Many people's first inclination is to call Photoshop, but that would be pretty dumb, considering its any easy to check to simply watch one of the shows to see if its real. And indeed, people have done that...and it is.

Apparently, its not that crazy, but in fact a simple Hollywood prop, used within the industry similar to the Wilhem Scream. It has appeared in shows like Modern Family, Desperate Housewives, and Scrubs among many many others.

The paper is just a file that can be purchase for about $15, instead of having to pay royalties to recognizable papers like the NY Times. The front can be customized for each show, but it appears that quite often, the single file is used to show the whole paper.

Seen on Brow Beat and here's the original article.
