The date: Friday, March 17, 2006.
The location: Mobile, Alabama.
The Incident: A bizarre and mysterious figure – an odd-looking fellow who frightens children – is seen lurking in the trees…
No, not that guy.
His name: The Crichton Leprechaun.
St. Patrick’s Day of 2006 was the day he became a global sensation as the result of a ground-breaking news report by WPMI-TV news anchor Scott Walker.
This is the original report, presented here for posterity and preservation as we await its inevitable induction into the Library of Congress.
The above video was posted to YouTube on St. Patrick’s Day 2006 and became one of the very first YouTube viral videos. As of 2018, the video has over 28 million views. Not even the “Farting Preacher” has managed to generate that level of mainstream popularity.
We at the Hammer and Nigel Show understand that we have a moral responsibility to provide our listeners with a professional level of insight and knowledge regarding this important story that surpasses the finest investigative journalism of our time. It is this duty to listener, God, and country that compelled us to move heaven and earth in order to bring you an exclusive interview with the one and only Scott Walker – the very reporter who famously broke the story of the Crichton Leprechaun. Screw you, Woodward and Bernstein!
