Who is Brandon Brown, the subject of so much discussion?
Brandon Brown’s name appears to be on everyone’s lips, with chants of “Let’s go Brandon” heard everywhere.
But who is the NASCAR driver who became a meme almost quickly when his TV interview went viral?
Brandon Brown is a stock car racing professional.
The 28-year-old from Virginia drives the No. 68 Chevrolet Camaro for Brandonbilt Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
He started competitive auto racing at the age of ten and debuted in NASCAR in 2014.
Brown moved on to Coastal Carolina University to study business, graduating with Cum Laude Honors in 2018.
However, he kept his association with Brandonbilt Motorsports during his studies.
“I acquired my love for racing from my Pop Pop, Orville Pennington, who had taught me how to walk and drive,” Brown remarked in an interview when asked what inspired his interest in motor sports.
Jerry, his father, was characterized as a “role model” by him.
Following an NBC interview after his NASCAR Xfinity Series victory in October 2021, Brown became the face of a new meme.
Crowds can be heard yelling “f*** Joe Biden” in protest of his presidency in the video.
However, according to reporter Kelli Stavast, people are yelling “let’s go Brandon,” which has since been referred to as damage control.
Since then, the video has gone viral, prompting a slew of memes including the slogan “let’s go Brandon.”
As Biden’s approval ratings sink, it’s become something of an anti-Biden anthem.
The family-friendly euphemism has been embraced by Donald Trump fans, with Donald Trump Jr. tweeting the term alongside footage of demonstrators yelling the genuine words.
“Let’s go Brandon” has been inscribed on airline banners, t-shirts, and even airport tannoy announcements.
Brandon has demonstrated that he sees the lighter side of his newfound fame.
He stated, ” “Thank you to all the other Brandons out there! Let’s get this party started.” “Look at me…. I’m Mr. Worldwide now,” Brandon subsequently tweeted. He also tweeted a meme of himself, with the phrase “Don’t touch me, I’m famous,” showing a girl swiping away a reassuring hand.
