Livin’ Large on NBC

NBC's Guinness World Records Show airing January 26, 2008.

About a month ago, totally out of the blue, I received an email from a producer at NBC television. Long story short, he wanted permission to use a couple of photos I took of the McCrary Twins’ tombstone (situated outside of Hendersonville, NC) in an upcoming program about the Guinness Book of World Records. It appears that quality photos of the McCrary’s final resting place are hard to come by and through the magic of “the internets” said producer found this post on Bobke Strut.

Anyway, the program is airing tonight from 9pm-11pm EST on NBC. The McCrary Twins check in at #17 in the top 100 countdown. I can’t vouch for the overall quality of the program, I have no idea how my photos will be used, but I’ll definitely be DVRing the show to peruse my handiwork.

  1. …i hope -”he wanted permission to use a couple of photos”- is a euphemism for -”we would love to handsomely compensate you for your work”- but i ain’t holding my breath…
    …dvr’ing is a good thing so you can slow motion revue the .4 millisecond photo credit roll-up at the end of the show…

    …in all honesty, i’m glad to see you get nbc props, pietro & also glad to see your man johnny gadret not only get 9th place at cx worlds, but be an animator during the race…man’s a revelation in that, while cycling has become very discipline specific, jg is a throwback…

    …our local girl, rachel lloyd also picked up a 9th place but by her own admission, rach was not feeling the leg strength today…glad to call her a friend & still think the world of her efforts…

  2. BGW-
    Have no fear…money has changed hands. Although if they just out and out swiped it I doubt I ever would have known, but the money they paid me is a drop in the bucket compared to a being on the wrong end of a copyright suit if they took the risk. And JG is the man. I’ll have some words about his ride in a few minutes.
