Friend of the show – friend in life – Ryan Merrell is an artist, designer and animator of great talent, skill and heart. We used to work – and drink – together when I was employed at the TV station. Even though he stole my job, it was tough to continue disliking him.
Ryan Merrell sent me this about two weeks ago. My very close inner circle of friends know that I am going a kind of rough time right now, and Ryan Merrell sent this video at a perfect time, more than he could have even guessed. It touched me and cheered me in a way that something this dumb probably shouldn’t. I watched this about 9 times in a row and laughed like a goddamned loon.
Thank you, Ryan Merrell. Whoo.
