OT's 5 Favorite Moments of 2015

Hello Friends,

Well, once again, we watched another year recede into our collective rearview. At my advanced age, I've become accustomed to these New Years and all the promise they bring. There was a time when I made resolutions, intent on betterin' myself with each new beginnin', but as I grew older I realized that, at some point, you just are who you are. Luckily I am naturally awesome, so things ended up pretty great for me.

Lookin' Back

One tradition I have maintained is takin' a mind-gander back on the previous year to remember a few of my favorite events. Now that I've fully embraced this new online journal, I can finally share those memories with you. So here are my 5 favorite moments from 2015:

No. 5: When I beat Drake at his Own Game

You may recall, back in the fall of 2015, this young Canadian feller who sings a bit and took the name of a male duck released a music video where he danced mighty funny around an empty room. It created quite a stir online and I couldn't help but offer my own response. https://twitter.com/old_trapper/status/656980287327354880 I thought I did a mighty good job.

No. 4: When I Gave My Fans Exactly What They Wanted

Now that I've realized a bit of fame, some might think I'd turn my back on the fans who got me here. To that I say, pish posh! My heart will always lie with the workin' joes who just want to come home after a hard day earnin' an honest livin' and unwind with their family and a massive amount of smoked meat. For those people, I created The Big Beef Box, and suddenly became an even greater snackin' icon. Somethin' I'd previously thought to be impossible. https://www.instagram.com/p/ys4pvXQpzW/

No. 3: TMW HuffPo Jacked My Swagger

Listen, I understand I'm a funny guy, and I know I possess a certain je ne sais quoi (as my French friends might say) that makes the Trapper life seem irresistible, but people really need to come up with their own gags. https://twitter.com/old_trapper/status/639984510604455936

No. 2: When I Revolutionized Beef Jerky Buying

On April 1st (which, I assure you, was merely coincidental), I announced I'd be the first company in the industry to sell a massive 30lb bag of jerky. My life has always been about excellin' and this was no different. https://twitter.com/old_trapper/status/583343661032714240

No 1: The Day I Went National

Of course all these moments paled in comparison to the moment when my humble Beefs debuted on national television. I never believed I'd be a TV star, and I know I owe it all to my dedicated fans . Thanks so much for your support in 2015 and stay tuned, because 2016 will be even better. All My Best, Old Trapper Signature
