Archie Boycotts the Wave

Hot take on the Wave coming out of Reno Aces’ mascot Archie.  I like when mascots aren’t afraid to make a stand regardless of how popular or unpopular it may be.

Also this is a funny run-up of the popular “Dude with Sign” account on IG.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.

Dude with Sign has over 4 million followers.

In October 2019, Seth Phillips and Jerry Media founder Elliot Tebele, took to the streets of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood to hold a cardboard sign with a simple protest, “Stop replying-all to company-wide emails.”

Relatable.

Thus, the @dudewithsign Instagram account was created. Within four months, the account grew to reach more than 4 million followers. (Forbes)

Making Archies sign….Relatable.
