By now, the exploits of bobsledder Johnny Quinn and his busted bathroom door have been well-documented. But in case you need a refresher:
Quinn attained his lofty status with a simple tweet of his accidental misadventure in an Olympic Village bathroom — #Sochijailbreak. The tweet, a photo of a bathroom door he’d burst through, went viral. It was retweeted over 25,000 times and favorited over 13,000 times and, suddenly, Johnny Quinn was a household name. Quinn, a former practice squad player for the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills and Saskatchewan of the CFL, jumped into the shower — and, when he couldn’t get out of the bathroom, he tried to rouse his teammates.
“My neighbors are my two other teammates on the bobsled, so I was banging on the wall, trying to get their attention and — nothing, nothing,” he told CNN’s Rachel Nichols. “Not so much panic because I had running water, but I was sitting there banging on random parts of the wall to see if I could, you know, catch somebody’s attention and, as I’m banging on random parts going around the bathroom, I kind of hit the door and it cracks.
“So I go a little bit harder and my fist goes through the door. So I see light and I’m like, ‘Okay, time to get out of here now.’”
On Monday, however, the Olympian most famous for getting stuck was stuck once more — this time in an elevator.
And the “Johnny Quinn is Stuck” Internet sensation showed no signs of slowing down as celebrities began to tweet at the newest Olympic star.
@JohnnyQuinnUSA You’ve certainly made your mark. As I told Mr Cunningham, take a piece of the door to tell your kids. ;-) Bill— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) February 9, 2014
The bobsled competition begins on Feb. 16, let’s hope Quinn doesn’t get stuck in his sled.
