The man. The myth. The legend.
It’s been approximately 6 hours since the story broke about heroic/courageous/literary guru ‘Dan from Optus’, and already he’s been tracked down. Welcome to the internet.
Dan was living what we assume was a quiet and fulfilling existence before he was plucked from obscurity and thrust into the limelight. It was his own fault actually. He’s just so damn upstanding.
If you hadn’t heard, late last year Optus received a barrage of complaints for placing signage and advertising written in Arabic in stores in areas with large Arabic-speaking populations, like Casula in Sydney’s west.
Police were called in after staff at the Casula store were allegedly threatened. The signs were taken down.
Some customers then took their complaints online, where Optus social media extraordinaire Dan was waiting to respond.
And now ladies and gentleman, we can put a face to a ‘- Dan’.
The Optus heart-throb is none other than Dan de Sousa, a multimedia specialist (he founded his own company, ShootCutDrop) living in Carlton, Melbourne. The company produces and writes a number of influential artists songs and music videos.
