When California’s KUSI interviewed a “surfer” in Sunset Cliffs about a boat containing marijuana that had washed up on the store, they clearly didn’t realize that Tom Seltzer was better known as Happy-Tom, bassist for the legendary Norwegian band Turbonegro. If you don’t know Turbonegro, I recommend checking out the following songs: “Rock Against Ass,” “Are You Ready (For Some Darkness),” “The Midnight NAMBLA,” “Everybody Loves A Chubby Dude,” and “Do You Dig Destruction?” For fans who don’t want to watch the entire broadcast, we’ve got Happy-Tom’s quotes after the jump.
“What a waste!”
“And they were stripping out the seats and putting bricks of marijuana in a plastic bag.”
“The harvest of Neptune!”
“Might have been a decoy for a bigger operation further North!”"
The last line is said in a tone that imitates, intentionally or not, the voice of Doug McKenzie. Do you think KUSI’s reporter figured that any surfer would refer to “the harvest of Neptune?” Maybe they just didn’t want to say the word “Turbonegro” on air.
