It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 16 Episode 8 Is Based On A Real Life Breakdown By Glenn Howerton – /Film

In “Dennis Takes a Mental Health Day”, Dennis’ doctor tells him that his high blood pressure requires medication, which Dennis refuses to believe. Instead, he gets a smart watch that helps monitor his blood pressure and heart rate, avoiding stressful situations whenever his blood pressure starts to rise. It’s a great build that allows him to get into a lot of situations that would irritate anyone, let alone someone with Dennis’s short temper. His watch chimes as he shakes, so of course there are plenty of beeps when he’s hassled by the gang, his rental-car appointment is double-booked, and then he loses his phone and can’t get back to his fancy electric rental car.

In real life, Howerton drives a Tesla and the key fob stopped working, so he used the app on his phone that serves as a backup. The only problem? He and his friend went to a movie showing and parked in an underground parking lot, where they couldn’t get a phone signal or WiFi. That meant they couldn’t get in the car, which meant they were stuck in there. Both Howerton and Dennis ended up in customer service loops, trying to get help and getting nowhere, though Dennis’s situation becomes utterly absurd whereas, in real life, Howerton just took an Uber and found out later.
