Pot CEO offers $ 10k reward to bring Lebron to its Comic-Con booth
BudTrader Exec is determined to show Lebron the BudTrader experience and ask the new Laker some pointed questions.
SAN DIEGO, CA – July 16 – BudTrader CEO Brad McLaughlin aims to deliver the most exaggerated party experience imaginable at San Diego Comic-Con International. The cannabis tech entrepreneur will offer $ 10,000 to anyone who can get NBA superstar Lebron James to attend the BudTrader Nerd headquarters at this weekend’s convention.
In a statement, McLaughlin set very clear rules for his reward for LeBron.
“You can’t kidnap him,” McLaughlin stipulates. “No, I mean you literally can’t. He’s 6’8”, 300 pounds, has a 40-inch vertical and is the best athlete of our generation. So we will have to appeal to Lebron in ways other than brute force. “
The second rule proposed by McLaughlin is that LeBron has to hang out at the BudTrader Nerd headquarters for at least 23 minutes. “Do not walk!” Says McLaughlin, “We want to meet you and see what it’s all about. Are you that interested in us? Are you here to win titles? Or are you here to go to Magic Johnson on how to become a billionaire and have an NBA What we really want to know is: “Are you waiting for time to run out, ticking a clock, stuck in this messy LA traffic like the rest of us, until you can pull back and browse? 22-year-old models at the sky bar like everyone else? other retirees from Los Angeles? “
Third, McLaughlin says he will allow Lebron to ‘give himself up’ by showing up to the BudTrader Comic-Con experience on his own. In this case, BudTrader will donate the $ 10,000 reward to a worthy cause. McLaughlin suggests that LeBron consider investing the money in what he considers to be ‘the noblest cause’, hiring an In-N-Out burger truck to attend the BudTrader experience at San Diego Comic-Con and feed SoCal attendees – Lebron’s new fans. The NBA megastar just signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in an incredibly publicized decision. “If Lebron is an LA Laker now, and a LA guy, he needs to know about the In-N-Out Burger, damn it! We’re trying to win an NBA Championship here folks!”
McLaughlin then lays out the fourth rule for his LeBron James reward: No Smoking LeBron! “It’s not the first time we’ve met him, at least!” He adds, continuing with sound reasoning, “Magic Johnson, the Lakers and their management team will not let him come near us if they think we are going to smoke him. All we need is for Lebron to test positive for THC.” and being suspended by the NBA due to BudTrader. I have enough problems right now, so … No smoking King James people! Wait until we win a championship and then we’ll smoke with Lebron, Magic, Shaq, Kobe, Phil Jackson, Jack Nicholson, and Rick Fox (I feel like since Rick Fox is a handsome guy, he would be a good guy to have in the championship after the party. Hot girls will probably follow him and we don’t want the championship after the party. to be a sausage party.) “
The BudTrader Nerd venue is slated to be one of the most talked about events at Comic-Con, and is touted as a live streaming experience to rival even big-budget studios and shows. “Our audience is going to be larger than broadcasters like the entire audience for TBS,” McLaughlin said. The brand will host daily events such as exclusive movie and TV show trailers, video game tournaments (including a showdown between professional female players), celebrity interviews and live performances by a mystery hip-hop star. The entire experience will be streamed live on TV, radio, Twitch, and livestream in collaboration with local and national channels to broadcast the BudTrader Experience to millions of people. McLaughlin says the events that have been publicly announced so far only represent a fraction of the tricks BudTrader has up its sleeve to wow attendees at Comic-Con International 2018.
This won’t be the first year BudTrader has made a scene at Comic-Con. The infamous BudTraders superyacht party of 2017 resulted in his controversial expulsion after just two days. The Budtrader yacht was unceremoniously pulled out of the harbor in the middle of the night. This caused BudTrader to lose its planned extravaganza for Saturday, along with tens of thousands of dollars in losses due to the cancellation. Last year, BudTrader’s presence at Comic-Con was covered by publications such as High Times, Times of San Diego, The San Diego Union Tribune, and more than 400 other media outlets.
BudTrader is the largest online cannabis marketplace, with platforms available in all 28 states where cannabis use is legal, as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. With over a million people registered to its platform, BudTrader’s user base rivals that of industry giants Weedmaps and Leafly.
