Can I confess something? I tell you this as an artist, I think you'll understand. Sometimes when I'm driving... on the road at night... I see two headlights coming toward me. Fast. I have this sudden impulse to turn the wheel quickly, head-on into the oncoming car. I can anticipate the explosion. The sound of shattering glass. The... flames rising out of the flowing gasoline.

Obvious tag on vacation? Hotels get all kinds of unusual requests for guests, and they usually don't mind fulfilling them. The concierge at the hotel probably did it without a second thought and went about their day. This is the kind of thing they get paid to do.

A pal of mine used to ask London restaurants what kind of bottled water was available, then ask for a glass of 50/50 blend of two of them. Just a gag to see if they would do it. Most did, without comment.

Actually, Newscorp doesn't own either.

The Columbia Journalism Review maintains an easy to use " who owns what" of media companies.

The prankster had told the Pembroke Hotel his father was an assistant to Walken during the shoot for Pulp Fiction, and so, seeing a photo to remind him of his father's achievements would make his stay even better.

You flucking lying ass shiat suck.  "Prankster" is a polite way of saying that.  Why would you even fabricate that crap?  You are not only a waste of oxygen but you are wasting other people's time because someone has not shoved a big enough mirror in your face so that you can learn that there are a billion ways to fluck with other people that are taking you at your word.  Only a juvenile jerk-off would get their rocks off from this.  I can't believe someone scooped the Daily Mail.  They should give the morning wakeup call via inserted alarm clock that didn't even work out to be a good sentence.

True that.

They never blink at my requests. Of course, I don't go running to tell the media that I asked for a photo of Scarlett Johansson next to my bed.

Wish I could afford nice hotels. Only once in my life, I spent time in a truly fancy hotel. We took our suns to Darrian Lake amusement park. We have a friend who was working for Marriott at the time. He got really good discounts for his friends and family. I think the name was the Hotel Coranado. This place had to be three stars at least. I'm talking mints on the pillows, fancy, soft robes and a maid that brought the ice to you. I'm used to, "Ice machine on your floor is broken, you'll have to walk up stairs."They used feather pillows and comforters and I am allergic. I hated to make a fuss, but my husband insisted on calling the desk. Two men came up and stripped everything with feathers and replaced it all in record tomes. They were so nice about it too.  I was so sad to then have to stay at Motel 6 on our next trip.

TFA repeatedly uses the word "prank." A prank is something that makes the recipient feel embarrassed or stupid. In the world of crazy guest requests, I'm sure talk about the latest pillow fort and framed photo requests is now passé at whatever annual conventions they have. It's just good publicity when they fulfill them.

Honestly if I got this request I'd assume it was going on social media and take advantage of the free advertising. Just good business practice.

2017-04-20 12:30:44 AM  
To be fair, telling somebody it is about your dad and his accomplishments sounds rather sweet. It is possible the hotel was all like, "Daawwwwwww yeah boy anything for you and your pops!"

Or maybe if someone there once worked a suicide hotline they would be all like, "This could be a bad thing. I will find the picture of Walken that communicates the most about a father's love and the value of a child."

How much is it gonna cost to stay at a hotel that can get Scarlett Johansson *in* my bed? Dressed up like Black Widow, with her hair from Lucy.

Walken around in wimmens underwear...

/Sorry Mr. Rivers
 
2017-04-20 02:59:14 AM  
How is that a prank?  It might be a prank if, say, his friend had rented the room and he got the hotel to put a Walken photo in, but even then it'd be a prank on the friend, not the hotel.

I see that we've covered that nice hotels probably don't even consider this even remotely unusual.

/If it doesn't cause damage to the hotel, isn't illegal, and doesn't violate some hotel policy, and is actually possible, you'll probably get it.
