HOLY SH!T: Andrew W.K Named Cultural Ambassador to Middle East By US Department of State

Andrew W.K. 2012

Just when you thought Andrew W.K. couldn’t get any more cool or awesome, he gets named a cultural ambassador by the United States government. Yes, you read that correctly. According to his website, Andrew in the coming months will be traveling over to the Middle Eastern country of Bahrain to share his music with and talk to elementary school kids, the University of Bahrain, and music venues about the art of partying and the positivity that can come from it. His trip will start in December.

If you don’t think that’s one of the coolest things that’s happened this year, you obviously are reading the wrong entertainment website. Honestly, Andrew W.K. might be the perfect person that embodies the American spirit. Sure, he drinks too much, but his ideas about how partying and living a fun lifestyle can change how people work together honestly are fantastic, and here at UTG we fully support this decision by the US government, and that’s something you won’t hear us say very often.

This is a tremendous invitation. I’m very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I’ve never been before. And I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!

    You guys realize the only source for this story is WK himself, and he provides no official government source, right? And you realize he’s a world-class troll, right?
