While Max Headroom has achieved status as a cultural icon ( pun there ), I have always found the character to be one of the most, if not the most annoying ever created. I don't know exactly why. Didn't realize it was Canadian too though! But let's try not to make too big a deal about that :p .

While we're on the topic of Canadian talent

Joni Mitchell- Both Sides Now: Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970

I always got a kick out of Max Headroom.

In 1987 I was living in the Chicago area when a pirate hacked into two local Chicago TV stations with a Max Headroom imitation. Other than the stations' management and FCC, I think most people were amused by it.

The hacker has never been identified. This video takes a deep dive into who it might have been with no clear conclusion
