“That douche from Owl City”

Also popularized as “that Owl City douche” or “the douche who’s Owl City,” Adam Young’s nickname became media legend almost instantly as soon as he opened his mouth about Ben Gibbard. I think Gene Shalit even called him that. Of course, he sells footie pajamas and titled his debut album Maybe I’m Dreaming (2007) and plays live in front of a projection of fucking clouds, but when he even came close to denying he was as intimately familiar with the Postal Service as every one of his fucking fans were, he became, irreparably, universally, and always, that douche from Owl City.
