Ira Question | Written by Nathan Mattise
In spirit of this weekend’s holiday, there’s something I’ve been wanting to ask virtually any celebrity. It might be even more pertinent to Ira Glass however.
As someone who has acknowledged a lack of interest in the spotlight, it has to be weird for Ira Glass to see his likeness everywhere. His notoriety isn’t even built on his image, but it’s not as if people are recording his voice for answering machines or home video voice overs. He appears on things as random as Whiskey Bar signs and has folks aspire to be him on Halloween.
What is your reaction when you see people wanting to recreate your image? Are you flattered? Is it surreal? Does it make you self-conscious? (All this especially given… your medium of choice is imageless).
