It’s hard to believe that a decade has passed since Vote for Pedro forever entered into the pop culture lexicon and a weird high schooler known as “Napoleon Dynamite” became a household name. PR professional Stephanie Kahan (the one in the middle) posted this picture of the cast 10 years later, as they’ve gathered to celebrate the epic anniversary. The Fox Searchlight studio even unveiled a life-sized bronze statue of the unlikely hero, forever immortalizing America’s favorite tetherball aficionado ... Discuss
