I just ran across this picture of Zach Galifianakis (of The Hangover fame) sporting some NC State swag at the premiere of his HBO show Bored to Death. Can’t believe I’m just now seeing this. As Galifianakis’ stardom continues to soar I hope he will continues to promote NC State whenever he can. Maybe he can find a way to wear a NC State shirt in The Hangover 2. I’ll provide the shirt(s) if he’ll make it happen. Zach just drop me a line (dfcf99 at gmail dot com). That would be much better marketing than anything our futile marketing department has done over the past decade.
Speaking of our marketing department, how tough is it to reach out to Galifianakis and bring him back for a football game? Imagine how crazy that would be for the fans and how much good publicity that would generate for the University. At least incorporate his “one man wolfpack” scene into the jumbotron mix as I pleaded for in this article back in September. I know he’s a busy guy, but we should be able to find a way for him to be involved. Remember Galifianakis did attend State and left to pursue his acting career just one credit shy from graduating so this would be totally different from some random actor/actress wearing a UNC shirt because it’s “cool.”
