OK, not HIM personally, but the WSR man CHARACTER he plays clearly displays classic jackass behavior (CJB syndrome, DSM IV). Pretty sure we can all agree on that.
I think it’s hilarious how you call this guy a jackass. Have you ever met him? He’s a very nice man.
He’s really odd, definitely on SOMETHING, but..what? I worked at Hear Music on the Promenade for about 3 years, he’d come in several times a week (at least once a month with a date) to make mix cds. Our closing time never changed, but somehow he was shocked when 12:30’d roll around each time. C’mon, it’s midnight, we’re TIRED..but no, not him! Still going, like the cranky energizer bunny. Oddling, yup. I always wondered how he got his dates..
I don’t really blame the guy. It’s Westside Rentals that has centered their entire marketing scheme around him — going so far as to provide him with a Hummer topped with a makeshift boxing ring in which for him to dance.
That said, I got my apartment through Westside Rentals.
That guy… tough way to make a living. I guess I’ve just always assumed that he’s the owner’s brain-damaged brother/cousin (a la Dominick & Eugene).
Either way that campaign has gone on WAY too long and he is super annoying.
Nice to see Mardi Gras headwear representation. Was it this guy? Attended a concert with him once, if so (we didn’t arrive together)
