BRUSH WITH FAME
MEETING SOMEONE FAMOUS OR LEGENDARY CAN BE EXCITING.
Many of these public figures may have inspired you or simply made you think “Damn I wish I was that cool, or that good looking”. Many of us as kiwis get to see close to home legends like the All Blacks at the local supermarket, some smile and giggle, others may stare in awe, and then the shameless usually come out with a “Hey cuz, you are da man! Can i get a photo with you?”, before framing up their hero on their phone with the frozen veggies as a backdrop. Sporting stars are not the only heroes. So if you have had a brush with fame and have evidence to prove it, then show us your wares and a quick explanation of the moment and why it meant so much to you. You could WIN this prize pack from the famous crew at ELECTRIC EYEWEAR. This issue young grommet KEHU BUTLER, a legend in the making, got to meet and be awestruck by his hero, the King Kelly Slater. He shares his stoke with us. “It was at D-bah for the Occy Grom Comp prize giving. Joel Parko and Kelly Slater had turned up at the prize giving. Then Joel Parko handed out the prizes as Kelly walked out like a ghost going towards the carpark until my dad said, “Hey Kelly can my son have a photo with you”. Then Kelly said “Sure”. As my dad took the photo it felt like a wave of excitement rushed over me. I couldn’t believe it was the 11x World Champion, neither did my dad, as he was taking the photo he couldn’t keep the camera still. As he left I was like, “OMG I had a photo with Kelly Slater, no way!” Then me and my dad went, “No way! We can go home and say yep we met Kelly Slater”.
