Local brushes with relative greatness: Carly Rae Jepsen and Waka Flocka Flame Edition

Posted By on Thu, Feb 18, 2016 at 3:43 PM

Social media has alerted us to two recent incidents that are either *very important* or totally meaningless for Orlando. Here's two cool stories:

Episode 1: Local man gets piggyback selfie with Carly Rae Jepsen
After Jepsen's recent show at the Plaza, Instagram user @josherickson somehow pulls off the shot every boy (and many girls) wish they'd gotten #squadgoals and the man didn't even throw a filter on that shit. #respekt

Episode 2: Waka Flocka Flame discovers Veganlando
Waka, the self-described "first hood vegan rapper," tweeted out an appreciative video of a half-dozen of the vegan donuts made by Valhalla Bakery and sold at Market on South. This was a few hours before his show at the Social; we can only hope the Vegan Hot Dog Cart heeded our warning and stocked the fuck up for afters.
