Love that he stays real about where he's from and embraces it rather than try to hide/ignore/deny it like some of these pretentious fake celebs do.

Notice how the "Pix-burgh" rolls off his tongue, spells Pittsburgher through and through. LOL

It is also smart self-promotion--Pittsburgh has a powerful and (at this point in cultural history) useful brand image. So, watch him play up the blue-collar, hard-working, self-sufficiency, and authenticity themes . . . again, it is just smart to make use of that.

All that smoking is another clue. Definitely more beneficial for him to promote the gritty aspects of Pittsburgh than the small town city aspects. Besides the smoking, he's pretty adorable. Sounds like a total stoner...or is that just the surf dude in him coming out?
