I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and he said he'd heard that an old friend of his has had one of her songs included in GTA4. This kind of makes her famous (since her track is going to be heard by millions of people) and since this person is "famous", my friend is also, by association, "famous".
(here's her (shudder) myspace http://www.myspace.com/deluka
, the song is called "Sleep Is Impossible" BTW)
Anyhow another example...
A photo of my sister's car once appeared in a national newspaper, which makes her "famous".
(she had it parked in Liam Gallagher's drive and some hack found that funny... well I suppose a very clapped out 1984 skoda did look a little out of place in front of a multi million pound pile in London)
So has anyone else got any good tenuous claims to fame. Actually being famous doesn't count, this is anti celebrity people!
