MANHATTAN — An NYU Law student is riding the Charlie Sheen media wave on a mercury surfboard, to borrow a phrase from the self-proclaimed tiger blooded Adonis.
"The hits keep going up so we're just riding it as far as it will take us," Northrop, who won a prestigious Hays Fellowship, told the law school's news blotter. "The goal is to get people interested in our band and our music going forward. I know the word is spreading because friends of my parents have seen the video."
Thousands of other YouTube responses to Sheen's controversial media appearances, including an auto-tune mash-up of his interview with "Good Morning America" and a Sheen-inspired mandolin song, have been posted to the video site.
