Show & Episode:
Two and a Half Men - Twanging Your Magic Clanger (S08E06)
How is MalibuPuddingGirls.com Used On-Screen?
Needing a little privacy at home in case the night’s big date with his dermatologist goes well, Charlie goes to Alan’s room to ask if he can disappear for the night. Walking in he discovers Alan alone, naked, with his laptop before scurrying to the side of the bed.
A few extremely awkward minutes later, Charlie gets his agreement for absence from Alan. As he’s leaving, he recommends that Alan checks out MalibuPuddingGirls.com. Alan types it in, and the scene ends with “Oh. Yikes.”
Where most shows register domains used in a episode at the beginning of its production cycle 3-4 months before the air date, the WHOIS results for MalibuPuddingGirls.com shows it was registered a scant month before the episode aired, similar to what was done for CharlieHarperSucks.com years prior.
The website that the domain was registered to doesn’t appear in the episode, the audience is shown the back of the laptop as Alan enters in the address. At the initial air date and for several years afterward, the producers set up a nice Easter egg for visitors. If you went to MalibuPuddingGirls.com, you were redirected to a simple page that says exactly what the writers think of you (shown in this Archive.org screenshot).
Also similar to what was done with CharlieHarperSucks.com, the domain was later redirected to a promotional site, in this case the official Facebook page for the show.
