Nic Lamb makes the vaunted Kook of the Day instagram feed. Hilarity ensues!
Of course you know Instagram and of course you follow @kook_of_the_day. Its brand of self-reflective humor keeps us all in stitches! Two days ago the people insisted that Santa Cruz big wave surfer Nic Lamb be the “Kook of the Day” and then proceeded to smash away on the poor boy in the comments section.
I had watched the offending video earlier in the day and thought it very well done. The story-telling, camerawork etc. all first rate. Nic, himself, seemed a little…how do we say…try-hard? He is getting ready for the Titans of Mavericks party, for example, and speaking about how “most of the guys who dress like surfers aren’t really surfers” and how “appearance is key” and about how “dude, I like wearing tailored suits. I like wearing tailored Armani tailored suits and Ferragamos…” before getting in a red Ferrari. Nathan Fletcher tells him he looks like PeeWee Herman. Very funny. Watch here!
And I thought that was that until Jimmy the Saint pointed me toward @kook_of_the_day and there was Nic with the comment “We couldn’t catch the rental company number on the side of that Ferrari, hook us up! The people spoke and nominated you for #KOTD bud…sorry, but not really sorry.”
Sheesh, did the people ever speak! Almost 500 comments of vitriol poured upon Nic Lamb’s tailored Armani suit and Ferragamos!
@nedhago said, “And the worlds biggest douche bag award goes to.”
@supremeboy7 said, “What a douchelord Who gives a shit about what you wear. ‘Ugh I only wear tuxedos when I go to the grocery store because people who wear normal clothes…aren’t normal people.’ go fuck yaself buddy.”
@kanyemc said, “HOLE. LEE. SHIT”
@agentnein said, “kook of the decade.”
etc. etc. etc.
Totally worth to go on and have a gander yourself. I find myself feeling, a little, for Nic and if I could tender one piece of advice it would be to trade his Ferragamo in for a conservative Edward Green lace-up.
