Watercooler Talk
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) – The owner of a South Carolina hair replacement business says a Myrtle Beach roller coaster isn’t nearly as hair-raising as the commercials claim. A television ad shows the 150-foot-tall Time Machine at Freestyle Music Park moving so fast that a man loses his hairpiece. But Dennis Murphy, who owns a hair replacement business, says the ad puts toupees in a bad light.

So he rode the coaster Thursday to prove his toupee would stay on.

Murphy said he appreciates the park giving him a chance to prove his point. Officials there said the ad is meant to be fun.
