  • ... that Ken Nightingall became famous for wearing pink shorts, forty years after he actually did? Source: "You are strongly encouraged to quote the source text supporting each hook" (and [link] the source, or cite it briefly without using citation templates)
    • ALT1:... that Ken Nightingall, an uncredited boom operator, was not mentioned in the citation for his sound team's 1978 Academy Award, but was still invited to Buckingham Palace with the winners?

  • ALT2 ... that about four decades after Ken Nightingall wore pink shorts on the set of Star Wars, he became famous for them?
  •   Sources and hooks check out. New enough (22 May) and long enough. I proposed ALT2 as a slightly cleaner version of the main hook proposal. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 00:16, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Thanks, Ed - someone else would need to review alt2 (which I've moved for you), but I think that it ends rather awkwardly and the original phrasing works fine. Kingsif (talk) 00:43, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
  •   Hi, I came by to promote ALT1 because it has a little more meat to it. But why doesn't it mention Star Wars? This should also be added to the article's lead. Yoninah (talk) 21:49, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
  • @Yoninah: I've added it to the lead, feel free to add it to the hook wherever it fits best :) Kingsif (talk) 21:52, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Thanks. Restoring tick. Yoninah (talk) 22:12, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
