'Cuddly' Nerd Spills Mountain Dew Over MAGIC THE GATHERING Comic Series Announcement 1

Lachlan Brown, 28, spills his Mountain Dew over Magic: The Gathering Announcement

Just under three days ago, Lachlan Brown, was spotted in local KFC fawning over a spilt beverage he’d upsized under ‘duress,’ while ordering his second Double Crunch meal. He claims, all caused by an online Magic The Gathering announcement.

It’s reported the drink, an appropriately sized 600 Ml Mountain Dew (now with Caffeine), had been spilt between a break of chicken burger induced meat sweats and Instagram scrolls.

“We are thrilled to have Vita and Harvey introduce you to Chandra, to her story, her quirks, and her incredible powers. Set in the near future of the Multiverse, these never-before-told stories will breathe life into Chandra, her cohorts, and her enemies in new and visually striking ways. Knowledge of cards is optional, love of characters, required.” has reached out to IDW and Wizards of the Coast for an apology on behalf of ‘Lachie.’ So far, our requests for comment have gone unanswered.

The new Magic : The Gathering – Chandra comic series is due for release in November.
