On unexpected fame

A very close friend, Matti, ended up with his face plastered across magazines in Berlin last week advertising the new Toyota car. It was a photo that was taken 7 years ago by an arts student when he was sitting in the underground, and it seems it made its way into a data bank somewhere and now he's advertising cars! I've been trying to find the ad on the web, but it seems to have only hit print media. Primarily music magazines, which has made him happy as he is a music photographer.
In the ad he is also labelled as "Stefan, 24". I think it makes a great new artists name for him - Stefan24 and I'm thinking of registering the domain www.whoisstefan24.de.
