At lunch I'm going to get my photo taken. Whether I'm getting my photo taken for my drivers license, TTC student card or U of T student card, I always have the urge to throw the camera my Corey Haim face. Allow me to explain...
In License to Drive, Corey Haim was at the height of his teen dream fame. He was starring with the other Corey, Corey Feldman, and there's a scene when he has to get his photo taken for his newly acquired license. Just before the click of the shutter, Haim opens his mouth wide and makes this face. That's the face I want to have captured on an ID card.
For a while in the late 80s, the Coreys were the big thing. Since then, it's been all downhill for these guys. Just about every second person you meet in Toronto has a Corey Haim story about his fall from grace. The non-Toronto Corey hasn't fared much better. It's too bad. The inspirations for the Corey Hotline Lisa was addicted to deserved a better fate, didn't they?
I'm off to get my picture. In honour of the Coreys, I might just throw the camera my Corey Haim face.
