You may find yourself, like many, wondering what the hell is happening in that video. I am one of those watching and laughing and thinking ‘what in the world is happening here’ until I realized THAT’S MY FRIEND.
Lauren Lam, local Philadelphia Flyers fan, has been trying to get Gritty to do this to her since December 2019, this was her Festivus dream.
2020 will be the year Gritty throws a sheet cake at me I can feel it— Gritty threw a sheetcake at me (@knittykitty) December 24, 2019
The campaign only grew stronger through 2020 and listen, my girl has goals.
Gritty I am bagging you to smash me in the face with a sheet cake what do I have to do https://t.co/uCOaqBPiYT— Gritty threw a sheetcake at me (@knittykitty) January 19, 2020
#FlyersDay all I want is for Gritty to throw a sheet cake at me please it’s all I have thought about for weeks I work at 1 South Broad suite 1000 the area outside of the elevator is not carpeted and there’s a shower in my gym in the basement my opportunity has arrived. https://t.co/QafSrumJiP— Gritty threw a sheetcake at me (@knittykitty) January 28, 2020
Gritty can go to wildwood but can’t come throw a sheetcake at me at my residence? Oh ok— Gritty threw a sheetcake at me (@knittykitty) July 8, 2020
I’ve been informed by sources close to the @NHLFlyers and @GrittyNHL that a sheet cake was thrown at the Wells Fargo Center this evening. I will not be providing comment at this time, as I am unable to speak through my tears.— Gritty threw a sheetcake at me (@knittykitty) January 19, 2021
And then, AND THEN, it happened. With no notice, with no warning, Gritty dropped this video on his social media and THERE WAS LAUREN. If it’s good enough for ESPN, it’s good enough for Broad Street Hockey. I had to know everything, so I set up a Zoom call and asked all of the tough questions like: what, why, why again, and also how.
Check out the interview, it’s even more ridiculous, unhinged, and fun than you think.
