It's a bleak time to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan.
The squad has lost six of its last seven games. The Blazers have suffered collective amnesia regarding defense and how its is played. In sunny southern California, LeBron James is sending Damian Lillard social-media love letters, reminding him that he could be playing with champions.
The Blazers need a pick-me-up. Enter Tim Wenzel.
Wenzel is back. This time, he's recruited a player from the starting lineup. The sequel to to "Shabazz is the man" is entitled, "Jusuf Nurkic in a van."
Describing the new Stumptown ad seems pointless. It's Jusuf Nurkic. In a van. But it is worth reminding you that "Dry Ice," the unfortunate gold-clad crypto-Californian who gets a face full of puddle, is played by Wenzel himself.
A year ago, Wenzel talked to WW about his creative process. "Stumptown lets me do what I want to do," he explained. "I usually just shack up in my bedroom and sit on the floor with my keyboard. I usually just come up with a song and then come up with a video around it."
