Ok, so maybe it wasn't a full 15 minutes of fame, but if you watch it 3 times, it's close. Here's the story . MTV sponsored a SAMS (Students against Multiple Sclerosis)Rock-A-Like (lip synch) competition in 1986. Over 300 schools participated. Local and regional competitions narrowed the field down to eight, all of whom got their own video aired on MTV. This video aired but once, as I lost to the eventual national champion by 1 percent of call-in votes. So, instead of getting an internship at MTV, I worked as a tour guide at Fenton Art Glass in my hometown of Williamstown, WV. It all worked out. It's been 21 years since that summer day when Martha Quinn uttered my name and I still twitch everytime I hear that song. And if you have a party or wedding and the band knows or the DJ has access to the song, look out .
