I Get Letters, Small World Edition

The Four Of You will remember that the other day I wrote about a guy who totally got one over on KTVU’s Ten O’Clock News.

Well, check out what I found in my email this morning:

thanks i am really glad people get it / i was just having fun / went down exac as you put it / spelled my name and everything. thanks for getting it

(name withheld) / AKA Mike Litoris

Ain’t that somethin’? We’re famous, kids.

“Sure, anyone could have sent you that,” you say. Well, yeah, that’s what I thought, too. But I did a little digging, and I think he’s for real. Without revealing too much, “Mike’s” email came from sbcglobal.com, and they’re in bed with Yahoo.

So I did a search on Yahoo for “Mike Litoris”. At the time of this writing, I was the sixth hit. (Technically I was the third, too, as I was the one who posted the clip on YouTube, mainly so I could write about it here.) So it seems completely reasonable to me that it could have gotten back to him, especially when he realized that he was officially On The Clock for his fifteen minutes of Internet fame.

Apparently the bit was featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the other night, and he’d be anxious to see it. So in gratitude for totally making my day by stepping forward, I’ll put the request out to The Four Of You…anyone know where we could get hold of the Kimmel clip? If you do, let me know, and I’ll put you in touch with him.

Wow. “Mike Litoris” has read my site. I truly feel like I’ve made the big time now. Kibo ain’t got NOTHIN’ on him.

POSTSCRIPT, 11:12P, 7/20/05: Someone posted his Kimmel clip on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJicPvtBVyo. Thanks again, “Mike”. :)
