Thats the idea behind Stan Oleynicks website, holdmyrecord.com, where now through October 1, hes trying to pimp out his name by selling it to the highest bidder, who will then have the power to change Oleynicks name to whatever they want, just as long as its not obscene.
With his new name in place, Oleynick will then attempt to beat a Guinness World Record for either watching TV the longest, or writing from the number one to 1,000,000 in the shortest amount of time.
Once he gets some press coverage, Oleynick will use his makeshift moniker as an advertisement in whatever TV shows or articles he appears in for one year, so the buyer of his name will get some good publicity.
So far, the frontrunning bidder is willing to pay $10,500 to change Oleynicks name to PageRank 7 Directory, but Oleynick isnt too worried about it.
He says, Im not planning on getting married when I have my new name, so my future wife wont be Mrs. Directory or anything.
