20th Century Fox To Recall All DVD Boxed Sets of '24'

Class action win in description battle
24 "should have been named 16:39" on DVD release admits Fox

20th Century Fox is to recall all of the DVD boxed sets of 24 after a court ruled the title is misleading.

The television program is named 24 as it follows events in the life of an agent in real-time over a 24 hour period.

However, as the adverts are not included with the DVD set, the show only lasts 16 hours 39 minutes, leaving a whole 7 hours 21 minutes unaccounted for.

Complainants in the lawsuit successfully argued that calling the DVD boxed set 24 was therefore misleading.

20th Century Fox have agreed to fill up the missing 7 hours 21 minutes with extra scenes which will see Jack Bauer, played by Keifer Sutherland:

  • Take a long leisurely time on the toilet
  • Take a shower
  • Shave, including nose hair
  • Go to the shop to buy some eggs
  • Fix himself some eggs: scrambled, poached and fried for various cast members not doing anything at the time
  • Read his e-mail on both his work and up to three hotmail accounts
  • Take a power nap
  • Pick his nose
  • Scratch himself
  • Pick his nose again
  • Give himself a slow upper-leg self-rub to both clean his fingers and massage his weary, be-muscled, thighs
  • Wash his underwear in the rest room using a bar of soap
  • Fetch and read a newspaper after asking around for change for the vending machine
  • Moan about the weather
  • Chat to work colleagues over the water cooler
  • Drink up to 25 cups of coffee
  • Refill the coffee machine, including reading the instructions, cleaning and replacing the filter
  • Go to the toilet again
  • Pop in to the local snack bar for food, spill tomato ketchup on his shirt, go to the rest room to clean it off
  • Play video games on his cell phone
  • Send text messages on his cell phone to his football buddies
  • Sit in the car, looking outside, while puffing his cheeks in and out, or whistling, or both at the same time
  • Shifting his weight from left to right leg and then back again for up to 18 minutes
  • Go to see a movie
