Happy Nigel Tufnel Day!

Happy Nigel Tufnel Day! Why is it Nigel Tufnel Day? If you look at today’s date, you will see that, as Mr. Tufnel famously stated in This is Spinal Tap, “The numbers all go to eleven.” In other words, today is 11/11/11.

The famous exchange occurs between Nigel Tufnell, played by Christopher Guest, and filmmaker character Marty DiBergi, played by the movie’s director Rob Reiner.

You may read more about attempts to make today Nigel Tufnel Day on the the Nigel Tufnel Day Appreciation Society etc. website, on LA Weekly, and on Facebook. And for our U.S. readers, we wish you a good Veterans Day too.
