The Max Headroom Incident (Distorting Reality)Posted: October 9, 2013
I’ve been slightly obsessed with this video for a few years now.
After a brief intrusion during the sports report on WGN’s 9:00 news, a later broadcast on channel 11 – WTTW – of the Doctor Who episode “Horror of Fang Rock” was interrupted by a man wearing a Max Headroom mask. The crazed person uttered mostly gibberish, crudely slammed the Chicago Tribune and its subsidiaries (WGN being one of them), and finally dropped his pants and was spanked by what appears to be a child with a flyswatter. 90-seconds later, the program returned to normal. To this day, he has never been caught.
