Thunder: Vote Early, Vote Often

{/literal}{include file="blk:carlsonblog_header"}{literal}

Drew Hooper is at it again.

I had the good fortune to introduce you to the Moore resident back in the spring during the NBA Playoffs. He is an artist and a painter, and motivated by the Thunder’s high playoff hopes, he decided to use those talents on his Suzuki X-90. He painted his car with images of Thunder players and transformed it into the ultimate Thundermobile.

(To read that story, click here. The video paired with this story is worth the click; Hooper is a hoot.)

Now, with the start of the basketball season and the end of the election season, Hooper has once again found a muse in the Thunder.

He has done up some “Vote Thunder” signs that can be seen around midtown Oklahoma City. Hooper has put a Kevin Durant sign at Pachinko Parlor on NW 9th Street and a Kendrick Perk sign at GoGo Sushi on NW 10th Street.

Along with the Perk sign is a James Harden one. Hooper started on Harden before a trade sent him to Houston.

“I thought about doing something to the Harden sign,” Hooper wrote to me in an email, “but I ended up talking myself out of it.”
