The Luck of the Irish
If you’re into the misfit scene, there’s several things that you definitely know: 1) Kryz is from Ireland. 2) The guys give Kryz a shit time for it and leprechaun jokes abound (out of love, of course). 3) Everybody loves Cody Tylek - including the band.
Cody is a Third Eye Blind expert and member of 3EB Lifestyle and an Admin with Third Eye Blind Misfits. You’ve likely seen his photos and videos in Facebook groups or on Twitter. If you’ve been lucky, maybe you’ve met him at a show. Today, we’ve been lucky enough to have a chat with Cody and get a fun story about Kryz for this weeks tribute. Enjoy!
“Kryz Reid is from Ireland, as most of us already know. In late 2016, hanging out with Kryz, he told me a story of his assimilation to American culture. Anyways, the band and crew would always joke with him about eating his Lucky Charms. He was telling me that he recently was going through the grocery store and, for the first time, he saw what Lucky Charms were. He never knew that we were joking about his height, etc. Until he saw the box sitting on the shelf. He whips out his phone and messages the guys something like, “you fuckers.”
Now, I love me some Lucky Charms. You may have even seen a recent debate I was in regarding Lucky Charms on a Kryz Reid parody Twitter, Fookin Irish. I had to ask Cody, “but does he know they’re magically delicious?! And frosted!” to which Cody replied, “He only knows now. He took everything quite graciously, too. He doesn’t mind the short jokes, etc. Kryz is very comfortable in his own skin. And this is how the luck of the Irish found out we were/everyone was joking with him.”
