We asked the question “How do you plan on converting new Supernatural viewers this summer and what tactics are you planning to use?”
Your responses varied from hilarious to extremely cool and creative:
@ZukoMobBoss: Heard that 1 of the new Twilight actresses was in Provenance (S2) & totally plugged it today @ a Twi-Con! More converts perhaps?
@gloriousTKS: We’ve got a private group on Facebook called Winchesters and Wine. We will try a new wine and watch 2 episodes each Thurs.
@ZukoMobBoss:True Story: I told my bro that he couldn’t stay w/me for a wk in June unless he watched #SPNS1 on BluRay w/me- *cue evil laugh*
@Postalpixxie: Already on it, the hubby has been watching #Supernatural season 1 ALL DAY he is up to episode 9 now. Good God he is worse than me
@Postalpixxie: and what tactic works on all husbands? 😉
@ldyghst: Awesome music, a cool car, and adorably hot brothers…. what more do you want?
@cenarkogal02: I got my friend hooked by showing her the picture of Sam in a towel from “Hell House” lol so i guess I’ll show people that LOL
@safaiagem: For the girls I will take a picture of J&J and Misha and say “these are the main characters.”
@wshfulthinking: I’ve been trying to get my sister into it forever. i think i’ll just bring the dvds over to her house and make her watch lol.
@zmwester: Show them a pic of the boys and say, “Now, do you need another reason? No, I didn’t think so.” 😀
@samjacklover: If they dont convert they have to wk a 9hr shift on a sat on the 1st of the month at walmart!
@meissara: You watch Supernatural, you get a cookie. Everyone loves cookies!
@FudginRenegade: Whisper SPN-related stuff in their ear while they’re asleep! Mind control in action!
@stephsmith: I would say if you like Buffy and The X Files, you will love this show.

@FudginRenegade: Show them our guys shirtless. That has actually worked a couple of times!! I kid you not!
@MeredithAncret: Well…my plan revolves around that set up from A Clockwork Orange and both my parents…
@FudginRenegade: Take them to a con, and put them in same room as Misha, Jensen and Jared! They’ll be phazed outta their minds forever.
@FudginRenegade: Use ducktape, a half-comfy chair, El Sol beer, Pie and sit them in front of tv and DVD player showing SPN 24 hours a day.
@LovingLife45: Using the same tactics I have been using all along.Talking about Supernatural endlessly at work,with friends,family,strangers.
@fayLeh: My two friends started watch SPN after one party so I’d say – alcohol and music videos, lol
@FudginRenegade: Casually walking around that person in clothes with catchy Dean-isms on them.
@DeanandDamonfan: Oh so easy i will tell people i will de-friend them on twitter & facebook 🙂
@FudginRenegade: By proxy. And sneaking it in there, using stealth-ninja techniques on their tv-system, so it will only show SPN!
@Weasleygirl101: My closest friends. And my main tactic will be pictures of Jared and Jensen!!! No girl can resist that!!!!
