Remember Chris Farley? Of course one of the props Chris used during his tenure with Saturday Night Live was his weight. The skits with him as a Chippendale’s dancer are historic and vividly etched in my mind. Another character Chris did was Matt Foley. Tragically, Chris died when he was 33. It was a combination of things but mostly drug abuse. Sad. Keep reading… there’s a happy ending.
Brian LaMee is another presenter on the Microsoft Across America team. He is currently working in the MBS group of presenters. Brian is one of the funniest people I’ve met and his Matt Foley impression is spot on. He did a skit on a cruise we were on and played a motavational speaker (Matt Foley). The trouble is, that the resemblance to Chris Farley was uncanny. Pound for pound. I can still remember to this day thinking what a shame it would be to lose a talent like Brian to the weight demons. That was a couple of years ago.
No more. Check out Brian’s blog about his quest to lose weight. You’ll be amazed at the transformation. If you do nothing else, just check out a few of the pictures.
