At Long Last: A New Pop Culture Icon Hall Of Fame Nominee
The Pop Culture Icon Hall of Fame was a very grandiose idea for me. One, it required me to come up with something once a month…which requires way more thought than I am capable of doing. Second, it requires people to actually vote for it here. Quite frankly, I was a bit saddened by the lack of voting the first time around so I became unbelievably depressed, sat at home, ate ice cream, listened to Gloria Gaynor…it was incredibly depressing. Like George McFly, I don’t think I can handle that kind of rejection. I’ve gotten over it and chosen another nominee and it is…
…Murray Hewitt. Yes, Murray is the second nominee for the Cinematically Correct Pop Culture Icon Hall of Fame. What’s that? He’s not a real person? Big deal. I make the rules so, as Murray would say, go stuff yourself.
Murray Hewitt is the manager of the band the Flight of the Conchords on HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords”. He is also an employee at the New Zealand Consulate in Manhattan. If you are a fan of the show, you understand the greatness of Murray. If you aren’t a fan of the show, I call your sanity into question.
For a few clips that will show the absolute hilarity that Murray brings, visit this YouTube page. Now, please vote (LOOK TO YOUR LEFT TO VOTE!) on Murray Hewitt and whether he belongs next to Jon Gries in the Pop Culture Icon Hall of Fame.
