Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s Dog At Lakers Game Causes Storm
Meet Brodie, the 80-pound canine sensation who has taken the internet by storm. Known as Brodie the Goldendoodle or @BrodieThatDood on social media, this furry celebrity is not just a great dancer and a good boy but also a basketball fan. Recently, he made headlines by sitting courtside at the Lakers-Knicks game at Crypto.com Arena, sharing the spotlight with his human best friend, Cliff Brush Jr.
The duo’s courtside appearance was nothing short of extraordinary, as everyone, from announcers to long-time season-ticket holders, expressed amazement at witnessing such a unique spectacle. In a phone interview with The Times, Cliff Brush Jr. revealed that the reactions from the crowd indicated it was a first-of-its-kind experience. Brodie’s presence courtside was not just noticed; it became the highlight of the game.
Brush ensured that Brodie’s visit was cleared with arena security in advance, emphasizing that the well-behaved 4-year-old Goldendoodle is a trained service animal. Throughout the game, Brodie remained calm and composed, either sitting on Brush’s lap or snugly positioned under his seat.
Living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Brush and Brodie have gained immense popularity on social media, amassing around 15 million followers across various platforms. Brush, a former accountant turned full-time content creator, attributes their success to Brodie’s charm.
Brodie’s fame extends beyond social media; he has thrown out the “first fetch” at two Florida Marlins games and attended a Miami Heat game, where he sat courtside during warmups. Their recent trip to Los Angeles included an interview with “Access Hollywood,” and they were offered courtside seats at the Lakers-Knicks game by Bibigo, the Lakers’ jersey sponsor, in exchange for a social media post.
At the arena, Brodie’s celebrity status was evident as fans recognized him, requiring a security escort to reach their seats next to celebrity couple Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Knicks shooting guard Josh Hart even gave Brodie a shout-out and high-five during pregame warmups.
One of the highlights of the night was Brodie winning the title of Fan of the Game after a dance-off against a human spectator. Brush described the moment when Brodie, aware of the camera, showcased his dancing skills on the Jumbotron, creating a loud and enthusiastic response from the arena crowd.
In the world of Brodie, every outing is an adventure, and every appearance steals the show, making this Goldendoodle a true internet sensation and a favorite wherever he goes.
