Nardwuar gets his star on Vancouver's Granville St

You can visit Nardwuar the Human Serviettec's star on the 800 block of Granville St between the Orpheum Theatre and Commodore Ballroom.
"I am honoured! Amazing! Thanks so much to the B.C. Entertainment Hall of Fame for inducting me! My star was placed in the pavement on ‘The Walk of Fame’ on Granville St. in Vancouver, BC Canada! 30 different people nominated me for this and I am so grateful for them ( and you ! ) for believing in me! I would like to dedicate this Star to my Mom who instilled in me a deep love of history. Also, if I, Nardwuar the Human Serviette, can do it ... so can you! Doot doo!"
