Stoner cinema’s favorite bully is changing his tune for the holidaze.
To help celebrate 4/20 without breaking any social distancing guidelines, Friday actor Tommy “Tiny” Lister — maybe better known as Deebo for all you cinephiles — will spend the month of April making personal pot deliveries to a few lucky Los Angeles cannabis customers.
According to a press release, the new Deebo-to-your-door promotion is the brainchild of Pineapple Express Inc., a legal weed delivery company operating out of Southern California. Now, we know what you’re thinking, but outside of the name, this Pineapple Express doesn’t have any relation to the 2008 stoner comedy starring Seth Rogan and James Franco.
As the promotion is written, Pineapple Express Inc. will choose four lucky clients every Friday in April (yes, including today), and surprise the winners with a knock on the door and a big bag of weed delivered by Deebo himself.
“We are excited to have such a Hollywood icon as a brand ambassador for Pineapple Express,” Shawn Credle, CEO of Pineapple Express, Inc., said in a press release. “We are proud of the fact that we are deemed an essential business by the city during this very important time in world history. We take COVID-19 extremely seriously and even with these deliveries happening in April with Tommy, he will be wearing gloves and taking additional mandated precautions during the deliveries, as do all our delivery drivers when making the rounds.”
Thanks to the ongoing global health crisis, 4/20 is already slated to look a lot different than in past years. But while smoke sessions will move from backyards and public parks to online video conferences, it’s nice to know that at least one stoner celebrity will still be out there, ringing doorbells and spreading high holiday cheer.
