Nick Slaughter




The leading character (portrayed by actor Rob Stewart) from the TV show "Tropical Heat / Sweating Bullets" became somewhat of a cultural icon in Serbia during the troublesome 90's. I was in elementary school back then and Nick Slaughter was equal to God in the eyes of my classmates. The Serbian student movement embraced the character as their trademark during the protests against Slobodan Milošević's regime in 1996/97.
