During a broadcast of the Dr. Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" on WTTW Chicago Channel 11, on Sunday November 22nd, 1987, at around 11:15pm, a Video "Pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask broke into the signal and transmitted one of the weirdest, unauthorized things ever to hit the Chicago airwaves.

Dude was never caught. [via]

Oh yeah, I've seen that video. Totally and utterly awesome. My favorite part is that this happened during an airing of a Dr. Who episode. Max Headroom sounds like a Dalek!

Must! Exterminate!
