2008 Kids' Choice Awards: Jack Black and Lots of Green Slime

You know that Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards (KCA) is getting big when the New York Times does a story on it. The article says that six million kids and parents will watch the show, but the focus of the story is the large amount of green goo that will be go splat on various performers during the show.

Actor Jack Black will host the KCA, as he did last year, and a host of stars will be there. Miley Cyrus and the Naked Brothers Band will perform, and other Hollywood bigwigs from Cameron Diaz to Janet Jackson will be there.

But one of the highlights will be the green goo, or "slime" as the KCA folks call it. The Times article says the neon-green goo is as thick as pancake batter, and the company making it is mixing up two tanker cars worth of the stuff. In the past stars such as Steve Carrell, Nicole Kidman, Justin Timberlake, James Earl Jones, and Johnny Depp have been "slimed."
