Morgan Merryweather was first depicted as host of Double Clef FM in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], a stereotype of a pompous classical music afficionado, interspersing the tracks with references to his refined lifestyle. His cultural references, however, are often incorrect. For instance, he at one point likens a piece of music to "Fellini's Lolita." Lolita was written by Vladimir Nabokov, and adapted for film once by Stanley Kubrick and again by Adrian Lyne. Federico Fellini never turned the book into a film. Moreover, Merryweather notes that he spent a summer "reading Proust in the original Italian." Marcel Proust wrote in French, not Italian.
