I just sent George Stroumboulopoulos this message and am awaiting a response. If you want, you can also contact The Hour to pitch a story or raise an issue.
I saw you a couple hours ago at the Computer Systems Centre at Spadina and College. You were checking out the new MacBook Air, I think. Pretty sweet piece of gear. I didn’t approach you because I respect your work and figure you probably get approached all the time in public. But I’m a big fan. Me and my roomates watch your show all the time. You raise some critical questions and have a ridiculous lineup of guests. Which brings me to why I’m emailing you.
Everytime I watch your show you’re wearing your signature black Adidas sneakers with the white stripes. And everytime it annoys me. Adidas shoes are made in sweatshops, and you look like a walking billboard. Now, I’m not one to tell anyone what to wear or who to be, but I’m surprised at your choice. You have that great segment on your show, 50 facts that should change the world, and I find it really informative. Why not do one on sweatshops? Just an idea. I’d appreciate it.
You open each show by saying something like “hi everybody, its your boyfriend George Stroumboulopoulos…” But, George, you aren’t my boyfriend. [I know, you’re heart broken]. My boyfriends don’t support sweatshops. That guy who does the segment on 50 facts that should change the world can be my boyfriend anytime. Haha. Yeah that sounds kinda creepy.
I don’t have much money, but if you’re willing to try out a pair of no sweat shoes then I’d be happy to buy you your first pair. All I’m asking is you try them out.
Thanks for hearing me out,
