Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Wednesday, May 15 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
The Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For
We’re not freaking out, you’re freaking out!
The day has finally come, folks. Russell Wilson will finally meet face-to-face with the Twitter-famous content creator, Cable Thanos. The engagement may not be what the social media world was expecting, however, as the two plan to battle it out over a match of Super Smash Bros. on Thursday.
The Seahawks quarterback posted a video message on Tuesday afternoon directed at the Cable Thanos nominating him for the skirmish. The video included a handful of clips from Thanos’ past work plus a few produced graphics related to Smash. Based on the graphical inclusion of the Nintendo Switch, one could infer that the two will be playing the newest version of the game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
In the off chance that you’re still using a flip phone and haven’t seen any of Cable Thanos’ videos on Twitter, I suggest you educate yourself. Thanos’ real name is Josh Cashman and he’s a Seahawks super fan and content creator that gained some traction during the 2018 season. He is known for his ‘meme-style’ videos and idolizing specific players and coaches on the Seahawks roster and coaching staff.
