The cast of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS came together to shoot a special holiday promo for social media and the whole thing is an absolute hoot, starting when Jason Thompson (Billy) blows the introduction and needs a second take!
A table was set up on the Crimson Lights and Society sets where the actors and actresses rolled a ping pong ball down the table to land in one of seven different cups at the other end which would determine their prize. These treats included candy canes, chocolate, and… coal!
“Coal?” Peter Bergman (Jack) jokingly complained. “I wouldn’t have played this if I thought I’d get coal!” Although those who won cash, gold, and snowmen were delighted that they were made of chocolate, and Kate Linder (Esther) declared her candy canes “perfect.”
Of course, the trick was actually getting the ping pong ball to the other end of the table and into one of the cups. It took some of the actors a couple of tries as they were just a little too enthusiastic with their tosses!
A special highlight is also Mark Grossman’s festive Christmas tree fleece hoodie, and it’s a shame that his ball very nearly went into the “cash” cup. But instead… “Not surprising,” the actor sighed. “it’s coal for Adam. Maybe next year he can be on the nice list. But probably not this year. Merry Christmas.”
We’ll cross our fingers that Adam can get himself on the nice list next year. And we can’t wait to see what Y&R has planned for a New Year’s promo!
