Small, but meaningful

I'm pretty stoked about this. Check out Weber's new home page and let me know if you happen to recognize the bald fool sprawled out across a large brown box.

Weber Summit S-650


The very nice folks at Weber's PR firm contacted me late last year and inquired about the photo. I believe it is being used elsewhere too, but this is the first I've seen of it.

I find it quite ironic, that out of all of the photos I've taken, they happen to use one Zoe took and I was in. Regardless, I'm humbled by the experience and even more happy it made my blog legitimate by making some money off of the capture. A very cool gesture by a company I happen to respect a lot.

In the end, the shot sums up the un-boxing day of the 650 and several years later, I still feel the same way.

That is so cool!

I feel the same way about my 650 - I just wish I had thought to take a picture of it.

Congratulations!

@Mike - Thanks! I know exactly how you feel about your grills, it must be an Ohio thing!

@Andrew - Thanks! Wasn't Dave in one of their books once too?

@Ellen - Yes, she took the picture, but I risked my life by jumping on the box@

Yeah, I think Dave was in one of their commercials or something; I'll have to ask him.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. I thought that was the best pic ever. Few could understand this kind of affection. Very cool.
