  • This is a unit of fame or hype, derived from Andy Warhol's dictum "everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes" — it represents, naturally, fifteen minutes of fame. Some multiples are:

    * 1 kilowarhol — famous for 15,000 minutes, or 10.42 days. A sort of metric "nine day wonder".

    * 1 megawarhol — famous for 15 million minutes, or 28.5 years.

  • Coined by Slate.com writer Collen Murphy, a Warhol is a measurement of length of fame, and is, naturally, fifteen minutes. Murphy explains: “A thousand warhols could be a kilowarhol or, perhaps, a jewell, after Richard Jewell, the man who generated news reports for months despite having failed to participate in the bombing at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. A milliwarhol, or about nine-tenths of a second of fame, might appropriately be named after the tyke whose rescue became a brief focus of attention last summer after he fell through the hole of an outhouse.�?
