Warhol's Prophecy

The remarkably perspicacious Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987), predicting society's demise into shallow obsessions with consumerism, fame and the materialistic, inadvertently coined a new phrase which would live on in our vernacular 40 years later ...
"In the future, everybody will be world-famous for 15 minutes".
... a spookily accurate prediction!
