Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight and as always I, @zombiepie, am honored to be your host this week! Now all the positivity in the world cannot change a recent announcement which many users have been gutted about. This week will be Drew's last as an employee at Giant Bomb. There is no denying the moments of hilarity and joy Drew has provided everyone on Giant Bomb, myself included. While the announcement is certainly sad, we can all agree to wish Drew the best in his future endeavors. The man could reasonably announce he is going to the Moon, and we would all believe him. Here's a few other things worth noting.
- Join the entirety of the Giant Bomb community in wishing Drew the best in his future. The man deserves success where he ends up.
- The Guardian of all news organizations published a news article and interview related to Drew's meme status.
