Video Blazin’ Squad

This weekend I met a kid from the UK named Matt. Matt is a rasta-type hippy. He’s got dreads and wears a green, red, and yellow knit cap. He is traveling the US, and is in Seattle to make a pilgrimage to Jimi Hendrix’ grave. He’s staying with a friend of mine and we all chilled last night. He was psyched to meet nice people and gave us his email address, which is blazinsquad@[URL REDACTED].com. Ha-ha, 420 jokes, funny pot-smoking hippy, right?
Wrong. Matt says that in the UK, people always think that his email address isn’t about his drug of choice, but rather about this boy band:
Here’s their Wikipedia entry. They are British, and many criticized them for being chavs. And they chose for their first single, in 2003, to cover Bone Thugs N’ Harmony’s “Crossroads.” I think Matt should get a new email.
