Drew Smith stars in 76ers x RushOrderTees ad campaign, drives haters crazy
Philadelphia’s favorite investigative journalist, blog cofounder, and general maniac Drew Smith has officially gone Hollywood. That’s right, folks, you’ll all be treated to his smiling face in the Sixers x RushOrderTees ad campaign.
After fielding an emergency call from the Sixers’ in-arena host Christian Crosby, Drew, and the team at RushOrderTees, design and print t-shirts in time for a Sixers game.
Here’s a look at the full spot:
Can Drew Smith balance fame and journalistic integrity?
Of course, this will leave many folks upset, considering the majority of traditional journalists refrain from appearing in social media ad campaigns. But, conflict of interest aside, the ad is a total banger. Plus, I know he’s my boss, but he’s looking like a three-course meal in that Printfly shirt.
While many are concerned that the newfound Drew might stray from his noble work uncovering the most important, very real stories concerning Philadelphia sports and society. They aren’t jokes. Nothing at The Liberty Line has ever been a joke. Not once.
Meanwhile, you can see the fame has gotten to Drew’s head a bit. So maybe the concerned commenters and starved Liberty Line haters will have something to latch onto. Just look at Drew “The Port of Los Angeles” Smith on Twitter:
Why do they call him The Port of LA? I don’t know. I’m neither rich nor famous enough to be let in on it. But, I bet the reason is really cool.
And when you watch the ad, you can see the guy is a natural talent. The two lines he delivered in the 45-second spot were dead on. Honestly, a name to watch in the industry moving forward.
Hell, I could easily see Drew as the next Allstate “Mayhem” guy. Hell, give my man a few West Coast IPAs, a skeleton camera crew, and let him run around on Street Road out in front of Parx Casino and Sportsbook. That’s instant gold.
Plus, it would bring me so much joy to have all the people that talked shit on or doubted this website see his face as much as possible. Wait until our Netflix deal, clowns.
