George Lindell, "Internet Sensation" of "Reality Hits You Hard, Bro" (Ahem) Fame in You Write the Caption
George Lindell, the Valley's latest "Internet sensation," is officially Internet (ahem) famous.
He recently gave an enthusiastic (to say the least) account of a car wreck for a local TV station that has made the rounds on the Internet, and introduced the world to a new catch phrase: "reality hits you hard, bro."
See some of the video below.
He now has a Facebook "fan" page and is selling T-shirts quoting his catch phrase.
In honor of his new-found Internet fame, Lindell will be the star of our You Write the Caption contest this week.
You Write the Caption's pretty self-explanatory. Here's how you play: we show you a picture, like the above photo of George Lindell going berserk while describing a car accident.
You -- in the comment section of this post -- then write what you think would be an appropriate caption for the photo.
On Monday, we'll announce the top-five reader captions and put them to a vote. The winner will receive a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building, a firm handshake, and a lukewarm glass of municipal Phoenix tap water.
Do your worst, New Times readers -- and let's try to keep things somewhat polite.
