John Carpenter wins ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ with style

Back in…oh let’s say 1999? There was a show sweeping the nation faster than all America’s janitors combined! That show was Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Starring Regis Philbin (one of tv’s greatest personalities), the show rewarded your smarts with some sweet moolah. You had to answer a series of questions, you had life lines (phone a friend, poll audience, 50/50) to better help your chances.

Before John Carpenter, no one had ever won a million dollars, let alone without using ANY life lines. And to this day no one responded to winning a game show (or anything for that matter) with a response as (to borrow a term from ’99) “pimp” as John does here. If you haven’t seen this, you will love it. If you have seen it, relive the cockiest and coolest response in Game Show history.
