EGGtoberfest XVI - 0.15 Seconds of Fame
12/12/13 -08:32 Filed in: BBQ Festival
In the 1960’s pop artist Andy Warhol opined that in the future everyone would be world famous for 15 minutes. This statement is often paraphrased as: “That is his/her 15 minutes of fame”. It is used to describe a situation where someone who otherwise is not really deserving of fame, suddenly is splashed all over the various media outlets. In my case it is more like 0.15 seconds of fame and was a total surprise to me.
On the weekend after EGGtoberfest XVI, the Big Green Egg Company posted their 10 minute video of this year’s EGGtoberfest on their website and YouTube. The last few years the company has posted an officially sanctioned of video or videos of each years festival. This year was no exception as I saw a gentleman with a professional HD video camera wandering around the festival. I started watching the video and there was a quick cut montage of scenes from the start of the festival. It showed the lines to get in and the lines t the Swag Bag Tent etc. Imagine my surprise when I saw someone flash by on screen who was wearing a shirt very similar to mine. I thought that was odd and quite a weird coincidence. I backed up the video only to find it wasn’t just someone dressed like me, it WAS me! The image lasts less than one second at the 0:39 to 0:40 second mark right after Dr. BBQ issues a welcome to EGGtoberfest XVI. I took a screen capture of my 0.15 seconds of fame and it is seen below.
