Humorous YouTube satirist Dom Mazzetti faced off against meal equivalency in the Brower Student Center to see who could attract more students when he came to the College on Tuesday, Feb. 28. The event was sponsored by the College Union Board. Mazzetti won by a landslide.
Maintaining his character as college party-bro Dom, Mike Tornabene — co-founder of the comedy duo Mike and Gian — obliged swarms of fans with autographed T-shirts and photos.
“My friends and I have known about him for years. We always go around quoting him,” said Kacey Carrig, sophomore marketing major.
A line of students waited patiently for Mazzetti, who was taking his time with each fan. Eager students quoted Domisms like, “I had an upper body experience” and “I work at GNC now. I do it for the discount,” as they waited.
Aside from getting shirts signed, students could also snag some neon Frisbees and colored or printed sunglasses.
Event coordinator Mallory Guzzi, sophomore graphic design major, pulled this successful event together within a month’s time. “I emailed him and invited him to visit the college about a month ago,” she said. “I really wasn’t expecting an answer.”
It was clear that the event was a colorful experience for everyone as starstruck fans continued to add to the line.
