The Main Character and protagonist in Silent Hill 4: The Room. Henry is a calm, young man who never lets his feelings show. Henry moved into into Room 302 in an apartment complex called South Ashfield Heights, located in the medium sized city of Ashfield, which is about half a day's drive away from Silent Hill. Henry soon had nightmares and developed headaches, soon noticing that he has been locked inside of his apartment room for five days. Suddenly a large hole appears in his bathroom, and as the game progresses, get's larger. With no reason or warning, he is dragged into the depths of terror.
Person one: Dude, have you seen Jack?

Person two: No man, not at all. He's been shut in his room for days. Playing video games I expect.

Person one: Damn, what a Henry Townshend.

When one is provied with one of those irresistible opportunities to render a spank to someone's behind, and, instead of going for the standard slap, one instead assumes a rock 'n roll stance (feet at least shoulder width apart, shoulders loose), makes an air guitar (with the neck and headstock pointing toward the waiting booty) and in classic Pete Townshend style, performes a windmill manuver culminating in a handful of ass. Shouting YEEEEAAAHHH afterwards is appropriate at one's own discretion.
Cute Girl is bending over, selecting a DVD from the shelf.

Her Boyfriend approaches and assumes a rock 'n roll stance, air guitar at ther ready and says to his Bro, "Dude say Townshend Spank."

Bro replies, "Townshend Spank?"

Boyfriend executes wicked windmill and connects!

Cute Girl is equal parts appaled and impressed.
