Succession, the Emmy-winning drama that airs on HBO, inspires a lot in us. Greed. Jealousy. Ambition. One thing we never thought to associate with the show, though, is excitement – especially not when, um, it’s Cousin Greg’s character.
But apparently there is a whole contingent of Succession viewers who think the gangly, silly dude played by Nicholas Braun is not only hot but deserves his own sex toy. It’s called “Greg the Egg” and it’s designed to vibrate whenever the company-wide actor appears onscreen.
“With the popularity of ‘Succession’ we thought it was a good opportunity to capitalize on the sex appeal that Nicholas Braun developed over the first two seasons,” said CamSoda Vice President Daryn Parker , at the New York Post. “He’s America’s darling and has captured the hearts of many on social media. Just scroll down Twitter Sunday night and you’ll see people coveting it. We thought that would be a nice compliment to people’s infatuation with him.
Parker is proud to shoot Succession in Sexcession. “We thought about associating it with Siobhan’s threesomes or Roman’s sexual perversions and addictions,” Parker said, “but we finally landed on Greg.”
The 33-year-old actor was told he had inspired a sex toy, to which he replied, “I think, uh… Is that a compliment?” in an interview with Vanity Fair. “It’s such an intimate thing to do with yourself – or with another person participating or watching. So the fact that ‘Succession’ and Greg can be on their minds while this is going on is not something any of us expected.
But then the beautiful shy of so much Succession viewers backed off. “Oh my god, I wish I hadn’t known about this,” he said.
Yeah, we wish we didn’t either. Again, unless millions of lonely women fantasized about you on the way down, have you even made it to Hollywood?
