There was an insurance commercial just on TV that opens "Someone once said" that everybody will have 15 minutes of fame. The obvious question is: Did the parties reponsible not know this was Warhol? Were they too lazy to check? Or is Warhol's name perhaps too scary or highbrow for their intended audience? I actually suspect the first two since this is one of those slap-dash bits where the hook really has nothing to do with what they're selling, in this case that you get your 15 minutes by buying insurance or some such nonsense.
