Let me tell you a little something about Mancow.
Back in 2000 when I was living in Chicago I made this little flash animation called “Elian – Wazzup!!!” that you might have heard about. It was on the news and stuff. Anyway, when the shit hit the fan about it I released it onto the web and asked other people to host it on their sites. One of those people who hosted it was Mancow. I never spoke to the guy and I suspect his web people were behind it, but one way or another it ended up on his site. Which was cool. What wasn’t cool was him implying that he or his team had created it. Which he did. On several occasions. I never listened to him so I don’t know what was said but there was a day in the middle of all that when I got about 500 e-mails from people saying Mancow has said the animation was his and asking if I’d made it for him or if I was lying about my involvement with it. I also got asked in several interviews what his connection to it was, and if he’d hired me to make it for him.
It was pretty lame that this guy was totally trying to steal the credit for something he had nothing to do with. But I guess that’s his claim to fame anyway, biting other people’s ideas and pretending they are his own. *cough* Howard Stern *cough*
