Either Gabe Newell has a side gig modelling underwear, or someone’s visualising his alternate destiny as an underwear model with the power of photoshop.
Valve co-founder and overlord, Gabe Newell, has had his face plastered all over the packaging of what appears to be a brand of underwear in China called Long Dian – LongD for short according to the box. You’ve got to have a big ol’ pair of balls on you to swan about with that emblazoned across your underwear. Or a long D.
A photo of the smalls was posted on Reddit by u/ChggnNggts, via PCGamesN. As the site points out, whoever created the artwork took the second image of Newell to pop up on Google search, and photoshopped the head onto the body of a portly gentleman advertising the size 4XL pants.
The other possibility is that Newell has a budding career as an underwear model to occupy the time when he’s not fielding Half Life 3 questions from fans of the series.
Responses on the post allude to Half Life 3 – as a sighting of Gaben in the wild always prompts at least one such comment – as well as a link to Tropic Thunder’s Les Grossman big dickp playa moment, which is just perfect.
What Newell is going to do now that
he’s been found out his face has been outrageously appropriated to flog underwear is anyone’s guess.
