CBS’s How I Met Your Mother is one of my personal favorite TV shows and while watching through Season 3 I spotted something in the background that looked incredibly familiar. It was promo posters for Avenged Sevenfold’s “Waking The Fallen” plastered on the wall in the background only 28 seconds into the episode. Needless to say, I was incredibly excited to see it. Check out a screen-cap below (click to view larger image):

Another TV Fun Fact:

Comment by Ashley

@hunter – I think they have to credit them in the credits, don’t they? At least they do for movies. But how awesome!

Comment by a7xaddict

A poster of my favourite album from my favourite band in one of my favourite shows in the background of my favourite character. So much win, I might cry!

How have I never spotted this before?!

Comment by Vanessa

I know! I never spotted it while watching it when it aired on television but caught it while re-watching the season and thought it would be a fun little post to make since news has been slow. Im a fan of Barney, but Marshall is right up there, Hah.

that is so cool. but whenevr i see avenged sevenfold anything anyware, i get excited. lik i saw viva la bam(spring break) this skateborder brandon novack had a a7x shirt on and i texted alot of my friends about it. :)

Comment by Jelissa

Correct me if I’m horribly wrong, but it looks like there’s a kid at the end of A Day to Remember’s music vid for “The Downfall of Us All” wearing an Avenged shirt, except it’s backwards because they flipped the film. I could be wrong, but it looks like one of their classic shirts.

Comment by Jenn

sorry to burst your bubble, but it’s not an a7x shirt. I thought so at first.. but if you look carefully you’ll see it’s not.

Comment by a7xaddict

thats sweeeet

Comment by luy

i saw that too and i got really exited and i was like holy shit they know about them!

Comment by Rachel

Haha that’s so cool! That’s like in the Carrie Underwood Video the one chick is wearing an Avenged tank top! ((It’s In before he cheats))

Comment by Venom

haha omg! its my favorite tv show and my favorite band all in one. ha, it made me happy=]

Comment by Jesse

Seeing as we’re mentioning other things we’ve spotted them in, Bat Country is very, very briefly played in Big Momma’s House 2 – which has Zachary Levi in, who’s in my other favourite show, Chuck.

Comment by Vanessa

chuck is awesome

Comment by Jonny

I love seeing stuff like this. On the episode of Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-list when she goes to Walter Reed, one of the soldiers in the front row is wearing an A7X shirt. I thought that was pretty awesome!

Comment by Kristen

Well seeing as how we’re on a A7X spotting mission I’ll put my 2 cents in. On that Miss Rap Supreme show that was on a few months ago on MTV…that black chick that always wore sunglasses since her eyes were fucked up wore an A7X shirt a few times on the show haha.

Comment by AAA

I could be wrong but wasn’t there a city of evil poster in borat when he went to meet pamela Anderson? I think I read that somewhere

Comment by Brandon

Yes there is an A7X City of Evil billboard outside the Virgin Megastore :)

Comment by Jess Hahn

wow, thats awesome! Avenged Sevenfold is everywhere! i like seeing stuff like this

Comment by DA

oh i got one to add. on the premiere episode of A&E’s show Tattoo Highway, a woman getting tattooed was wearing an Avenged tank top. i was pretty stoked to see it.

Comment by DeathWinged

Omg I saw that! I was so happy XD.

Comment by JojoGates

Hah now that we are talking about a7x media sightings, not too long ago on an episode of oprah they had from the black eye peas giving out a scholarship to some students and on one of the clips showing this boy at his school he was sporting an avenged sevenfold shirt!! I was like no freakin way!! On Oprah!!!! Crazy!!!

Comment by Lis

Comment by Sean

Comment by Lis

The episode is called The Superhero in the Ally

Comment by Kammie

I think i heard “Almost Easy” being played at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards during the Best Fight nominees = b

Comment by Sham

Nah, it was Bat Country.

Comment by Violet

No no, it was Almost Easy (in 2008) I recorded it xD

Comment by Destiny

Either way… it’s a good thing we’re fans and know Shadows’ voice, because this year, all you heard was his initial roar from Bat Country and that was it.

Comment by Jenn

During an episode of “Ghost Whisperer”, I saw a Avenged Sevenfold poster, it was only shown a few seconds – but I felt like screaming when I saw it xD

Comment by Sofia

oh oh oh i got another one ….if it wasnt already mentioned.
Matt Tuck is wearing Avenged shirt in the Bullet for My Valentine video Hearts Burst into fire
when he comes out of the telephone booth and throws his hoodie on his head …

Comment by mon

I’ve also seen a poster on a Ghost Whisperer episode. :) I think it was from Waking The Fallen too, but it was a band photo.

Comment by Gee

Not only was one poster on Californication but in two different episodes, two different posters are seen. One in season one in Rebecca’s bedroom and in season two at the party manor of the record producer. And in an episode Rebecca’s boyfriend wore the White Blood Coffin tee. =]

Comment by Destiny

Also! During the 2009 ‘Punk Rocker’ Episode of MADE on MTV the mae coach was wearing the ‘Love It or Die’ tee

Comment by Destiny
