From one of the brilliant minds behind The Ronnie Johns Half Hour comes this video - MTV's "Cribs" starring imprisoned Australian David Hicks.
We've always championed our Australian friends' creative efforts and legal struggles. However, we never realized the power they wielded. For in the aftermath of this video, prosecutors negotiated a plea agreement with Mr. Hicks. He'll be back to Australia within 60 days, in order to serve a nine-month sentence.
This result is almost as impressive as the time Yahoo Serious organized a nationwide boycott of South Africa in the 80's, or when Paul Hogan's Crocodile Dundee 2 led to an arms reduction agreement between the United States and Russia. Congratulations go out to Mr. Ilic and company. Now, if only they could decriminalize the Mexican Wave, they'd really be getting somewhere Down Under.
