Luke Johnson. What a crazy guy. It’s been close to five years since I last saw him. Now that he’s on the cusp of international fame, it’s my chance to say, “Yeah, I know that guy.”
I don’t know. Maybe I’ll write a book about the scandolous LAN parties we used to have together.
That’s him in the image above, wearing the hoodie facing the back wall. That’s me to the left of him bringing my hand to my face as I curse from being killed in the game we were playing (Ghost Recon as I recall).
That was the last time I would see Luke for about 5 years… until I got on to YouTube to look up a Super Bowl commercial. The one with the guy that has cash coming out the wazoo. And there I saw his image right on the home page as the top featured video!
He’s one of the craziest people I’ve ever known. I knew someday that he would do something so crazy that the whole world would want to watch. It was a sad day for LAN partiers in Utah when he decided to move to Arizona to finish his schooling.
Here’s to you Luke! And may you continue in your fame so I can continue saying, “Yeah, I know that guy.” That’s closest I’ll ever get to fame. But it’ll do.
