  • The word Fugazi originated in the Morris Park section of the Bronx circa 1972. It originated from the Fugazy Limousine tv commercials featuring Bob "Fugazy" Hope. My brother lied to my mother saying he was working for the limo company because she was on his back to get a job. I started to call him a "Fugazi guy". I spread throughout the neighborhood and was expanded to label anyone or anything that was a phony. Ex; He is fugazi, or that item or watch is fugazi.

adjective

noun

  • The word "Fugazi" popped up in the film Donnie Brasco with Al Pacino. "Don da Jeweler" gets approached privately by a real mafioso, Lefty Ruggiero (Al Pacino) who wanted to sell a hot diamond ring. After a quick inspection, Brasco pronounced it "a fugazi" - a counterfeit. After a bit of verbal sparring, the two men go to find the man who gave the ring to Lefty, relieving him of his Porsche in lieu of the fake diamond ring. From that point on, Donnie is in with Lefty, a troubled, lonely man who wants someone to follow in his footsteps. A similar theme was explored in the excellent crime drama The Mechanic.
