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.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
