The internet lost its collective mind when police department posted the mugshot of Charles Dion McDowell on their social media after he was arrested in Florida for possession of meth, cocaine, and marijuana, with intent to sell. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office posted his mug shot on Facebook, along with the hashtag #gotcha.
McDowell is now out of jail and he’s using his free time to the best of his ability as he decided to track down another famous neck meme guy in Long Neck Guy so that they could have an old fashioned neck off to determine who has the biggest neck out there.
David Samuelson Jr. grew up in Flint, Michigan. He was born with a condition that made it extremely difficult for him to gain weight, even after doctors put a feeding tube in his stomach. He is now 5’3″ and weights approximately 60 pounds. He’s become known as either “Damn Long Neck” or “Daddy Long Neck” and currently has over a million followers on Instagram, although at some point his account was set to private. He’s even made videos with fellow viral sensation Gucciberry.
Neither man has had an easy life, and ten or twenty years ago that’s how things might have stayed, but this is the age of viral stardom, and both men have found a way to spin their hard-knock lives into viral fame.
