Josh Cribbs Signs the LeBron James ‘Witness’ Mobile (Video)
Cleveland’s second biggest athlete, Josh Cribbs of the Cleveland Browns, officially made his pitch for LeBron James to stay and re-sign with the Cavaliers. Cribbs is seen first in this video saying, “You da king, you da king, baby boy. Stay here,” before signing a specially-made LeBron Mobile that is serving as the petition to keep LeBron in Cleveland. The car has “Witness” and “Pleasedontleave23.com” plastered all lover it, amongst a number of signatures from regular citizens and celebrities of the city.
I actually like the idea of the car, because it’s somewhat original. I think the idea of getting a happy-looking Josh Cribbs to make a public pitch is an even better idea, because it shows other athletes/his friends are happy in Cleveland — as much as they are probably lying.
Even if you think the car idea is dumb, it’s still way better than having a bunch of no-name Clevelanders singing an atrocious song for LeBron or tickets for life to random concerts LeBron definitely doesn’t want to go to. If I had to guess, I’d say the song is more likely to make LBJ run like hell in the other direction. “But wait! We have a car signed by Josh Cribbs,” might just get him to turn around and listen to all the monies he’s going to be offered.
