“Duck Dynasty” star Uncle Si, the grungy bearded and somewhat bizarre uncle of the Robertson clan, is tagged as the latest breakout star of a reality show. “Duck Dynasty” encompasses the ultimate redneck culture, so it makes sense that it would be Si to make a splash among fans of the show since he is the epitome of that culture, according to the LA Times on Sept. 27.
Si’s “become a symbol of youthful rebellion,” claims the LA Times and his popularity among kids seems to evident this statement. The “Duck Dynasty” uncle marches to a beat of a very different drummer than most folks. He looks more like a homeless person than the multimillionaire that the family business and show have made him.
It’s not Willie or Jase in headline news today, it’s Uncle Si. He is someone that seems to be missing that filter, the one that stops you from saying just what you’re thinking. Whatever is on his mind, Si blurts it out.
Who would of ever thought that the next big thing for the nation’s kids would be an old man, who sports an “awkward” beard that he “probably never washes?” Or at least that is what his nephew Willie claims. He is the furthest thing away from a traditional superhero, but for some bizarre reason he’s earned superhero status among today’s youth!
