A few months back ESPN sent a camera crew to Ole Miss to film a short web documentary and commercial for the Admiral Ackbar mascot movement last fall. Everybody around the Student Media Center dressed their best and hoped for a chance to get on the spot. But I had no idea this was happening – I just showed up for work that morning hungover in my airbrushed “Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Good Night” T-shirt.
Yet somehow, there I am – on a national TV spot, ESPN’s homepage, and across the internet. Prominently featured enough that drunk people now shout “BANDANA BRO!” when I’m on the square.
Ahh, this is the rest of my life.
