Ever wanted to have your own billboard? One of our very own Drake staff, Davie, can now check that off his bucket list. We sat down with Davie for a brief Q+A session about his experience of not only having a 20 foot face, but also his newly discovered doppelgänger connection with Sour Patch Kids.

Shannon: How did your life as a gummy begin?

Davie: I auditioned to be in an add for Virgin Mobile. It was my first audition and I was really nervous so I didn't get it. It was really funny, they asked me to pretend that I was seeing the season's first snow fall. I kept acting scared and annoyed. I guess they wanted wonder! A few weeks later, the same agency called me back for the Maynards campaign and after making funny faces into the camera, I scored after my second audition!

SEM: After your billboard went up at Yonge and Dundas Square in August, did people stop you on the street?

DD: [laughs] One guy stopped me and shouted: HEY MAYNARDS!

SEM: Every time someone eats a Sour Patch Kid, do you feel it?

DD: [laughs] Yes! It's like voodoo; you know how identical twins can feel each other's pain? I'm now connected to all gummies.

SEM: If you were in Willy Wonka's factory and had the chance to make any candy in the world what would it be and what would you name it?

DD: It would definitely be salted caramel. Crunchy outside, gooey caramel inside. It would be called "Danger Babies."
