Congratulations, Doug, for the honors and recognition you are about to receive by Ripley's Believe It Or Not. You have worked hard over the years with your talent to create oddities for us "Showmen" and this salute that is to appear in papers on Friday is more than just a feather in your cap. Rest assured, the general public has been awed, wowed and creeped out by Higley 'zibits over the years and that accomplishment itself is just as great.

Thank you for introducing me to the world of show. Friday, I hope you savor and bask in the flashbulbs and glory for what you have created.

Best Regards My Friend.

Thanks all. Quite an honor and priviledge. All the more valued because of the high esteem Ripley's is held in by us all.
Our 'oddball' community has been treated with great respect and an always positive approach. This inclusion is my Nobel Prize and Academy Award as it has been my personal Holy Grail all my life. So thank you for the kind words. Smile

Doug, you deserve all the accolades you get, and more.

Could you fill us in on the backstory, the hoax itself, the trunks and cars and such? Sounds fun and fascinating.

Thanks all. A great honor to be sure.

Tom: The basic story is a long time ago I had showed a Zibit in the trunk of my car. So did Harry Murphy and did very well at a big motorcycle event.

Jimmy Vee (a performer) bought a zibit and I told him of this. His brain kicked in gear as he was also a marketing company for a group of Car dealers in the US and Canada and came up with the Monster In The Trunk promotion. 42 car dealers participated across the US and a couple in Canada...it was all put together very quickly and I had 2 weeks to get the 42 critters done and to the dealers.
Over a million dollars was spent on the advertising and the individual dealers each did their own thing. Some staging police crime scenes or outrageous funny ads on tv etc. The story was that they had taken in a trade in and when the trunk was opened,they found this Strange Thing under some rags! Come See It!!! (and take a test drive haha).
Many of the dealrs broke sales records and LOTS of cars got sold proud to say... basically it was my How-To grindshow plan taken to outrageous lengths. Worked like a dream.

Thanks again all.
