So I couldn’t help but notice that Jason Roberts isn’t in the video introduction for Simple Pickup’s channel introduction video along with Jesse and Kong. Hmm, that’s odd, I thought, then hewed to my worst journalistic instincts and decided it was nothing. Later, I noticed he wasn’t in any of the new videos. Maybe he’s taking a vacation, I thought again, allowing myself to absolutely bathe in naïveté. Finally, I decided to reach out to the guys (well, their people — everyone has people now) and ask in the most casual way possible: what the hell is up? The response? Basically, a “we can’t talk about it.”
What could possibly be so bad that he’d mysteriously be erased from the Simple Pickup landscape like some World War II-era officer in Stalin’s employ? Something is going down here, people!
