It’s probably crept into your head more than once: If I shout-out a celebrity or athlete on social media using their username, maybe they’ll acknowledge me in some way.
I’m not sure if that’s what former LSU and current New York Giants punter Brad Wing had in mind earlier in June, but it’s paid off beautifully: He got a shoutout in Nicki Minaj’s new song with Calvin Harris, Skrt On Me.
Wing was pumped.
So how did this happen? A user on the website Genius figured it out: When Wing mentioned her on Instagram during the #NickiMinajChallenge, she answered back and told him he’d be getting a shoutout.
If this punter didn’t already have the respect of his locker room, he surely will now.
