Peter Thomas Paid Only $19 for Vietnam War Documentary – Was it Fate?

Uncovering the Strange Coincidences Surrounding Peter Thomas and the Vietnam War

Peter Thomas, an American announcer and narrator of television programs, made a shocking revelation recently: he was paid only $19 for his work on the 1984 ABC documentary on the Vietnam War. Yes, you read that right – nineteen dollars.

But that’s not the only strange coincidence involving Peter Thomas and the Vietnam War. His narration work on the documentary was also sampled on the hit song “19” by British musician Paul Hardcastle. And what’s the significance of the number 19, you ask? It just happens to be the average age of a combat soldier in the Vietnam War.

Coincidence? We think not. Clearly, there’s something more going on here. Was Peter Thomas somehow destined to be involved with the Vietnam War, even if he didn’t realize it at the time? Did fate lead him to that $19 paycheck, and ultimately to the “19” song that would make his voice a pop culture phenomenon?

We may never know for sure. But one thing’s for certain – Peter Thomas is taking it all in stride. When asked about the $19 payment, he simply shrugged and said, “Hey, it was a different time back then. Plus, it’s not like I needed the money – my voice is my fortune, after all.”

And as for the “19” song, Thomas is just happy to have been a part of it. “It’s always nice to know that your work has an impact,” he said. “Even if that impact is making people dance to a song about the horrors of war.”

So there you have it, folks. A bizarre coincidence involving a Vietnam War documentary, a hit song, and a measly $19 paycheck. Who knows what other strange connections are out there in the world, just waiting to be uncovered?
