For some San Francisco residents, nothing at all has happened to predictability, and while they may not see a milk man all that often, there are certain things that won’t be going away for a while. The residents I’m referring to are the neighbors of the super recognizable house used for as the exterior of the Tanner family’s home in Full House, and then as the Tanner-Fuller home in Fuller House. Apparently it’s a nightmarish situation for those living in other homes on the street, and this is just one neighbor’s reason.
It’s an endless stream of people. They drive through the neighborhood blasting the theme song.
Now, I don’t know if the person who said that, tech exec Andrew Clemens, is a horrible human being or anything, but I can’t imagine that he’s committed any acts heinous enough to specifically deserve hearing the sitcom’s theme song repeatedly coming from outside of his house from something other than a television. That’s such a surreal thing to have to experience, and while there are definitely worse theme songs from TV’s long history, Bennett Salvay and Jesse Frederick’s “Everywhere You Look” would take little time to grate the nerves and cause public rioting.
This is a problem that the neighborhood has seen ever since the show first aired, and to be expected, the house’s popularity has really skyrocketed ever since Fuller House came into existence. I’m sure stars using the house for social media posts didn’t help in those early pre-production days, either. And all of that, despite the fact that the show doesn’t even actually film there.
According to the Wall Street Journal, one particular morning barely saw five-minute spans go by without cars stopping on the street or slipping into neighbors’ driveways so that fans could get pictures of themselves in front of the house. And no, not all of them are particularly worried about being hasty in their endeavors. Here’s what another neighbor, 74-year-old Mary Risley, had to say.
I am shocked by the number of people who open the gate and knock on the door. A 5-year-old asked me if I know John Stamos.
Sadly for that kid, there wasn’t a positive answer to that question.
Others living there regularly hear people yelling out to them questions about the cast members, and those people have no fear or shame in showing their appreciation for the fictional comedy through real-life interactions in real people’s lives. That’s the kind of thing that has plagued the folks who live in the house used on Breaking Bad as well as the people who live where The Walking Dead films. Living next to famous locations is far less rewarding than people might imagine.
I’m checking my crystal ball, which is shaped like Kimmy Gibbler’s head, and it’s showing me that things aren’t going to get any better for these San Franciscans since Season 2 of Fuller House is coming in the future. And probably more.
