Glenn revealed the mystery to a question that has been plaguing viewers for years: Why does he dress like he lives in the Depression? It turns out it has nothing to do with Glenn's dwindling eye sight, and (of course) everything to do with Walt Disney.
"I said to Pat, 'I finally figured out why I dress the way I do.' He's like 'Really? Blindness?'" Glenn said.
"I said 'No. It's because I like the old cut of things, I like the old fabric, I just like the way things were.' And here's why, I think."
Glenn then began to explain that he believes his clothes are an outward sign of his desire to live in simpler times.
"It's the Disney theory. It's what Walt Disney was doing, and I think we are all doing this. I'm just manifesting it in my own way, but we are all doing this."
"Main Street was done to reflect the turn of the century right around World War I, just before Word War I," Glenn said. "You look at those days as simpler times, even though they weren't."
"What Walt Disney was doing, he was bringing you in to this new high-tech world, where Tomorrowland was just literally around the corner. And the Magic Castle and Fantasy Land was right ahead of you. He was taking you in and making the adults, the kids were coming in to see the magic at the end of the street, but the adults were so upset. It was a time where we were having black lists, where the communists where everywhere, where we had people that were going to try to blow us up, we were in the great war, the war to end all wars, then World War II, then we went immediately to Korea. Then we were talking about nuclear explosions and Godzilla and changing the world entirely. Everything was changing so rapidly, the people who were growing up on a farm who didn't everybody have a telephone, now we could destroy the world in 12 minutes. They don't know what the hell was going on."
"So they would go to Disneyland, and Walt put a warm blanket around them and said remember what it was like when the world made sense? Remember what it was like? And it gave them a chance to go oh, relax. It's a safe place. And then they could enjoy the magic. That's what he did."
"I think that's what I am doing by the car I'm driving. I'm driving an old car from the '70s. I like clothes that are old, even used clothes. I find used clothes. Listening to old music," Glenn said. "Everything in my life is becoming vintage, and I think that's because I'm trying to put a warm blanket around myself. The world is changing so much, I'm trying to put a warm blanket around myself. I don't know if that is a good thing or bad thing, but it's my normalcy bias manifesting. I think we are all feeling this need to have a warm blanket, but there isn't one. And I think I'm just creatively finding my own warm blanket."
"I just want to move someplace where you can just be normal, where it to be simple, simple times. And maybe I'm alone, but that's what I'm feeling. I just want something to make sense, because nothing in the media is making sense, nothing in Washington is making sense. Quite honestly, sometimes you even listen to the people in the pulpits and they don't make sense."
