Still, I've heard about this documentary that some of his friends did and I'm curious if anything ever became of it. I'm a sucker for documentaries, and I'd probably get a kick out of this one, even though I understand he isn't interviewed directly about it.

indigo_jones wrote:Sherry, out of curiosity, since I know little about the whole Figwit phenomenon, how on earth did you even find out it was Bret in the film?
And also IIRC Bret told us that he first heard about it when at a party and some mates of his told him he had to come see this website about him. That was the first he knew about it, poor bloke

Thank you for the background. I was wondering if you had some super sleuthing abilities or what. It's amazing what can happen with the Internet now. I used to do a fan site for an Italian soccer player and it turns out my site was shown/mentioned on an Italian tv show about the player. I had no idea until an Italian friend happened to see it.

I just about died laughing. My friends and I used to say that line to each other all the time (well, without the Figwit bit, obviously, since this was back in 1988 or so). My crush is complete!
