On November 22, 1987, two Chicago television stations had their broadcast signals hijacked by an unknown person wearing a Max Headroom mask and sunglasses. The first incident took place for 25 seconds during the sportscast on the 9 O’Clock news on WGN-TV Channel 9 and two hours later around 11 o’clock on PBS affiliate WTTW Channel 11 for about 90 seconds during a broadcast of the Doctor Who episode “Horror of Fang Rock”. The hacker rambled on making reference to Headroom’s endorsement of Coke, the series Clutch Cargo, and WGN anchor Chuck Swirsky. A homemade Max Headroom background rocked back and forth as he rambled, and the video ended with a pair of exposed buttocks being spanked with a flyswatter before normal programming resumed. The culprits were never caught nor identified.
