"I Like Turtles" Zombie Kid 15 Minutes Of Fame Only Continues

In Portland, Oregon a new commercial for a local sports program only continues the "15 minutes" of fame for a 10 year old boy who had his face painted like a zombie for a neighborhood fair, and when a local reporter interviewed him he nervously said, "I like turtles". Some enterprising companies are even marketing "I LIKE TURTLES" T-shirts and other products. Such is the strange world of YouTube and other video posting sites that are making unlikely stars from strange little video bits.

Sometimes it seems that the threshold for fame gets very low when someone like a Paris Hilton, famous for really doing nothing, can become a star. But the "Turtle Boy" phenomenon only proves that the threshold keeps getting lower and lower for fame.
