We may never look at our slow cookers the same way after the horrible (spoiler alert!) death of Jack Pearson on This Is Us. Jack tragically died after forgetting to unplug a slow cooker that then malfunctioned and caught fire. Perhaps it’s no surprise that fans would design a brilliant decal to ensure we think of Jack every time we look at our slow cooker. The new decals trending on Etsy ($6) and Amazon ($8) show Jack (played by Milo Ventimiglia) reminding users to “Unplug me.”
While Crock-Pot’s statement to fans makes it clear that the slow cooker on This Is Us was a vintage model with a history of malfunctioning controls and Ventimiglia even starred in a Crock-Pot Super Bowl ad to reinstate trust in the brand, these decals are a hilarious reminder to abide by basic safety protocols. We still love our slow cookers and don’t necessarily blame them for losing the beloved Pearson patriarch (honestly, it’s not Crock-Pot’s fault). But… we’re also not against getting to look at Jack’s face every time we enter our kitchen. That mustache is everything.
Will your slow cooker be wearing this decal? Let us know @BritandCo.
