Hype Up: Brian Botts

The first time I met Brian Botts I said to myself, What a complete jackass, who the hell does this guy think he is. Wait a minute, that was Dave Sypnewski. No, no. Brian is, believe it or not, one of the funniest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of kissing, I mean, meeting. He still thinks he’s fourteen years old. He has fun doing anything and tries his hardest at everything. The kid wants to be a surfer, snowboarder, mountain biker, husband, team manager, motocrosser, body builder, partyer, class clown, and snake charmer. I’m glad he’s still in the industry so we can hang out and bill his boss Ken “I Still Got A Gold Tooth” Block.¿Whitey

When Brian got the cover of Blunt magazine three years ago, I guessed he was just another one of Whitey’s little Utah buddies, too skilled at snowboarding for his own good and probably a socially stunted weirdo. Then I flipped through the mag and saw a photo of him cuddling in bed with two voluptuous blondes. Damn, I thought to myself, this dude’s the shiz. Capable of busting out mellow methods and hot ladies in a single bound. ¿Nathan Yant
