WASHINGTON, May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/  — Faux rockstar Nigel Tufnel — portrayed by actor Christopher Guest from the landmark cult comedy, “This is Spinal Tap” — lends his offlandish, side-splitting opinions on who created Stonehenge, and why, in an exclusive online interview with National Geographic Channel.


Claiming he knows the name of the single man responsible for the construction of Stonehenge, Tufnel sits down with a journalist to answer some hard-hitting questions and takes viewers on an exclusive tour of his garage, where he conducts “decoder” experiments to provide evidence for the true purpose of Stonehenge.


Beginning on Wednesday, May 21, the spoof interviews can be found online at and on various websites around the internet.
