The Legend Of Roly.

Postby Kazmeistyr on Mon 29/Sep/03 6:31pm

The other night over dinner some friends and I were discussing very silly "legends" or "myths" that went around when I was at primary school.
What came up unanimously as the biggest "myth" of all was Roly HayeHaye.

What is interesting is that at the time of the ad playing, we were at opposite ends of the country, yet the same legends were told.

Such as:

He drowned trying to save his glasses

and

He choked on a sandwich.

I realise this is not exactly p.c., but I was wondering what other legends were told of this unfortunate soul.

Does anyone know the truth?

Does anyone have an old vhs recording of Macgyver that remotely has a chance of having the ad during the breaks? If so, I need a copy.

The legend shall continue.

I've just done a comprehensive search of the [url="http://www.ihc.org.nz"]IHC website[/url], and there is no mention of Roly Heihei :(

My guess is that every time an IHC ad backfires totally and makes people giggle at the ad and it's disabled actors rather than making them donate money to IHC (Remember the "I can put toast into the toaster!" boy, too) they try to cover it up - Which explains why there seems to have been no mention of Mr. Heihei in many years, which is a shame because that guy had a great attitude and it was fun to watch those ads... :(

He still brings me to tears...

I can remember Honi selecting a song on the jukebox vividly....

Oh, and I can still quote a line or two:

Interviewer: " So Roly, what do you like about the IHC?"

Roly" The Staffff"

What was the correct spelling of his name? Ideas?

Roly Heihei? Rolly Hayhei? Rolie? Rowlie? - I wanna know if Google knows anything about his disappearance :huh:

Maybe he was 'silenced' by fretful IHC officials worried that me might reveal too much in an interview? :eh:

Are you suggesting a conspiracy?

I don't want to incur the wrath of angry IHC special agents, so I'll shaddup now :paranoid:

http://www.ihc.org.nz/news/forum.asp

Thats the address for the IHC message forum... About a year ago someone asked a question there about Roly without getting a response, which is unfortunate. May I suggest we continue our discussion there? :blush: :D

I just laughed so hard I nearly shit myself.

Seriously, we should barrage them with questions until they crack.....
