eBay seller Didjamatic has written the most creative description of “Who is Doctor Popular?” that I have seen in years. From his item listing 190355270982:
This yo-yo was personally setup and modded By Doctor Popular himself. If you don’t know who he is, just imagine what would happen if Albert Einstein, Cher, Marylin Monroe, Kermit and Fonzy had a child and locked it in a room with only a yo-yo for 30 years. Yes, he’s that cool. Doc used to sell these modded up the way he likes to perform with them and I was fortunate enough to score one. Everything you see on it is Doc’s work, not mine.
This is one of my favorite descriptions since the Village Voice called me a “skinny bespectacled doofus” in 2001.
