| Is "Supergreg" the Guy from "Queen"? This 1988 footage seems to answer in the affirmative.|
For those who missed the boat in 2001, see the #1 Tribute Site.
For those who caught the boat, here's an update: It turns out Supergreg was just part of an ad campaign for lee jeans. (video) The site was created by some of the staff as a joke, and then turned into one of the most underutilized viral marketing campaigns of all time!
|For the record, the "guy from queen" was Freddy Mercury. As for the buddy lee commercials, I thought that everyone knew that. They had a bunch of websites (one with a redneck racer guy) and each of them were in commercials.|
|Freddy Mercury died of AIDS.|
|I guess I don't watch enough TV!|
|Or enough fark.com...|
|I didn't see those Supergreg commercials. Guess they weren't aired in Europe. Supergreg is da number one though!!!|
|I never saw them either; they must have been pretty short run.|
|No, it's just that it would have been easy to miss the fact that it was supergreg that Buddy Lee was in a DJ battle with (or the redneck racer guy that he was in a race with, etc.).|
|Maybe that's true, but I don't even remember Buddy Lee.|
|I was lucky enough to see the commercials.....ROCK ON SUPA GREG|
|Super Greg is Ali-G, Borat... AKA (real name) Sasha Beren Khoen (not sure if the spelling is right though)|
