CaptainHindsight101: Ohhh helloooooo, yes I would please like your largest dildooooooo
Sirsafari: I bought these dildos strictly as a joke. But I do suppose it would be a shame to just throw them away, perhaps I should save them. Strictly as a joke.
Nugatorysurplusage: God, this should’ve been a scene in the movie
mvfsullivan: The dozens of visits to many different sex shops have taught me one thing:
The people that work there have seen / heard **everything**
No point in trying to surprise them.
ArcadianBlueRogue: He talked about it when he was on Inside the Actor’s Studio. A lot of his anecdotes were hilarious like this.
RossParka: The source of this story is [Williams himself in a Reddit AMA](/r/IAmA/comments/1n41x1/robin_williams_its_time_for_a_convoluted_stream/ccf7z7a/?context=1).
Spdrjay: If it had been some other city he might have been noticed.
Zerohazrd: Just imagine what went through the person’s head, who sold it to him, after the movie finally came out. When they realized the weird old lady who came in and bought a massive dildo was actually Robin Williams.
TaintTickler: Thanks for the daily reminder of how much I miss Robin Williams.
2cool4life: The ole “I’m gonna buy this large dildo as a joke” routine. 😉
MoreSteakLessFanta: I saw my mom the day he killed himself and when I mentioned that he died she asked how in a sad voice, and when I said suicide she just goes ‘no…no!…nooo…’
Like, she didn’t yell it, it wasn’t shrill, but it was, like, *horror*, and that really chilled me. As someone who tried himself a couple times, and my mom knowing that, I think all her fears and horrors hit her at once because Robin was such a positive force and it’s hard to see a smile like his go, especially when she probably saw the darkest timeline of mine there too.
I live with regrets, but as long as I live and I work on myself I feel Ok, and if anyone else who ever felt the same as Robin or I did reads this, please try to work on yourself too because life is worth it.
Speedswiper: This is exactly what I’d expect Robin Williams to do.
klsi832: Effie, brace yourself.
ssbeluga: Dustin Hoffman did something similar for Tootsie but didn’t have such an amusing experience: https://youtu.be/xPAat-T1uhE
roccosrant: This is one of the most bizarre backwards mainstream movies from the 90s. I used to watch this all the time. I recently sat down with my son and watched it and was appalled about how big of sociopathic asshole his character is. Those kids are gonna need years of therapy. When I was young I remember thinking, wow that Sally Field is a real bitch. Totally sympathetic with her character viewing it as an adult.
DoomDoomyDoom: Which one? Nothing like a solid celebrity endorsement.
Metallis: That man was a national treasure and he will be forever missed.
TempoParadoxx: Fucking loved the guy. This is so him.
pistonian: the comedic opportunities were just too tempting to NOT do this
relaxandenjoy: Proof that you can be freaky but still not sexually harass people.
MufasaAce: He wouldve had the most viral videos ever in this modern day and age.
lastdr: I’ve gotta try this
Went in once with a friend pretending to be my sister. We openly talked about the size, what was comfortable with, and how to hide it from our parents
Dude behind the counter didn’t even blink, and offered some great suggestions on hiding places. We ended up buying just cause we felt bad for wasting his time. She told me she was gonna toss it on her way home, but I’m not so sure
mattnotis: I feel like Robin’s presence on the planet kept the monsters at bay. Once he was gone, darkness reigned.
I_Will_Bang_Jyn_Erso: I mean, if there’s one place where people tolerant transvestites buying sex toys, it’s San Francisco.
SplitPost: I will be waiting for this to show up in an r/AskReddit thread about crazy personal experiences with celebrities.
LMBH1234182: We didn’t deserve Robbin Williams.
IanAnthonyKane: Well. Now I have some very weird images in my head.
