A. Gully, Witness car hit Parnell's for Game 2
I walked up to Parnell's last night to watch Game 2 at the same time A. Gully and his Witness car pulled up.
His video for "Witness," his hip-hop track celebrating the Cavs and Cleveland, has gone viral on YouTube, probably because of his wild, hooptified "Witness" car. The track itself was played in Mayor Frank Jackson's Cavs rally at City Hall.
Fox 8 News has featured him several times. Scene did a story on him this week.
I was not prepared to report, so I offer you a fuzzy cell phone cam shot and an improvised interview recalled from memory.
The ride is a '87 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. The checkerboard leather seats were customized by a guy in Collinwood, on Waterloo Road. The neon "Open" signs on the doors' interior are from Sam's Club.
A.'s disappointed with the Scene story, thinks it made him seem like an amateur with a gimmick, when he's been recording for three years. He's getting out the word about his music on his MySpace page.
Here's his new video from last night: the scene outside Parnell's after LeBron's miracle shot -- complete with a LeBron talcum powder tribute -- and the celebration downtown.
