Kris Brannon, AKA “Sonics Guy” (AKA a former member of Fools Play Improv), is a pretty cool guy, and (obviously) very passionate about getting an NBA team back in Seattle after the Sonics were taken away many years ago. He shows up at events all over the region in his Sonics gear holding signs with various “Bring Back Our Sonics” messages. Everyone loves getting their photos taken with him:

Here we are WAAAAAAAAY back in 2011.

Well, he was recently the subject of a fun little documentary about the leaving of the Sonics and the hope for their return, called Superfan. It was an official selection at the Seattle International Film Festival, the Tacoma Film Festival, the Chicago International Reel Shorts Film Festival, and was also shown on Alaska Airline’s in-flight entertainment. And you can now watch it RIGHT HERE:

At fewer than seven minutes long it’s not horribly in-depth, but it’s very well done.

Heck, I don’t know many people who have been the subject of documentaries, do you? And, no, I don’t really count.

Good on ya, Sonics Guy!
