George Lindell: "I Was Just Minding My Own Business - BAM! Internet Sensation!" Enjoy Your 15 Minutes, "Bro"

Earlier this week we posted a video of Lindell describing a car wreck he'd been in, during which another driver crashed into a utility pole.
"Arcing', sparkin', blowin' up," Lindell told reporters in one of the most animated accounts of a car wreck we've ever seen. "It was like 'Bam!' I got hit hard, and it was like getting hit by a...train."
Following our post, the video went viral -- now, if you ask Lindell, "BAM!" He's an "Internet sensation!"
"I am the guy that everyone wants to have a beer with, bro. It's been a crazy ride, bro, and I was like Wuuuughghghghghgh," Lindell writes on his recently created Facebook "fan" page. "I live in the desert of Phoenix and will paint your house or business and then have kick it with a beer when I am done."
It takes more than a Facebook "fan" page to be a bona fide Internet sensation -- it takes a catch phrase, which Lindell has: "reality hits you hard, bro," which is now available on T-shirts, mugs, magnets, hats, and all the other standard knickknacks associated with Internet (ahem) stardom.

In addition to the knickknacks, Lindell's interview with MyFoxPhoenix has been turned into a music video, a la-Antoine Dodson.

Enjoy your 15 minutes, George...
