Reality TV guys visit Addison and Bedford bars
Read on to hear about the "chunky boy sandwich." And no, it's not edible.
ADDISON Dude, these guys are chunky.
A heavyweight from MTV's “Rob and Big” and his big friend Bam Bam stomped into Duke's and Sherlock's in Addison, drinking Miller Lite and spreading the hubbub about their new spinoff to be filmed in Dallas. Christopher "Big Black" Boykin and Rashawn "Bam Bam" Davis -– their real names, but only if you're their mother -– also visited two bars in Bedford.
In and around talking about their aptly-named new TV show “The Big Life,” which will soon film its pilot in Dallas, they're also recording their new Chunky Boyz album, Weight Aint Nothing But a Number. We'd be remiss if we didn't share the titles for your reading pleasure: “22s and Man Boobs” and “Chunky Lovin” -- not to be shown up by the belly-buster, “Pull Your Belly Out.” We couldn't make this stuff up if we tried.
While Big Black and Bam Bam were hanging out with fans (and probably some random people there for happy hour), they also promoted Miller Lite with a far-fetched marketing scheme that seemed to work, we think: As former security guards for celebs, Big Black and Bam Bam are in the business of security. OK so security = protection, according to my thesaurus. So stay with me: Miller Lite just created its new “Taste Protector” cap and lid for their beer – and enlisted the help of our chunky men to spread the message.
One source says it better than we ever could: “They're touring the country right now making sure people's beer is properly protected.” In a stunt to make their point, they went around the tables at Duke's and Sherlock's, removing Bud Lights from innocent drinkers and replacing them with free Miller Lites. (“They weren't protected!”) And cuz they're not only celebrities and body guards -– they're also human – they went one-for-one drinking Miller Lite and then water. Those are some smart, hydrated dudes.
Apparently they're funny, too –- in that big guy sort of way. Our source tells us “they love taking pictures with the ladies,” so watch if Big Black and Bam Bam surround a woman on either side like a “bookend.” You've just been chunky boy sandwiched. And perhaps a little violated.
