I’ll let Page 2’s Patrick Dorsey explain this video:

On Friday we made the case for Orlando as a suitable metropolis for Magic center Dwight Howard, and included a video from local musician Jeff Wilson and the Orlando Sentinel.

Now we have an updated version of the video, from local lawyer/superfan Dennis Salvagio, a.k.a. The Fat Guy, with singers and supporters all saying “Let’s Fight for Dwight.”

In the summer of 2010, Cleveland fans made a similar video, “We Are LeBron” in an attempt to get LeBron James to stay in Cleveland. The video included the Governor of Ohio, members of the “Dawg Pound,” former Real World DC cast member Erika Wasilewski, investigative reporter Carl Monday, and a local weatherman. LeBron James ultimately did not re-sign with the Cavaliers. Hopefully, things will go differently for the Magic fans that made this video than the Cavalier fans that made that one.
