Kevin Smith is celebrating his 48th birthday today, which is his first since suffering a life-threatening heart-attack back in February. He marked the momentous occasion with a joke from the movie that started it all for him, Clerks.
The social media post he shared featured Kevin Smith leaning against the New Jersey store where the movie was filmed. The joke was a famous line from one of the eponymous Clerks:
“Today, August 2nd, 2018, I am 48 years old. This is me leaning against the wall that changed my life. Speaking of life, I almost didn’t make it out alive this year. So in the words of the great Dante Hicks ‘I’m not even supposed to be here today!'”
Since having the health scare, Kevin Smith has committed to changing his lifestyle for the better and has shown his progress through his social media. The creator is still going strong with many projects and ventures, and hopefully the community will have him around for years to come.
Kevin Smith’s next project is the crowd-launch of his television show Hollyweed via Rivit TV. Give your support here. Here’s the official synopsis:
Two potheads navigate the ups and downs of managing a small business in their quest for profits and the perfect bud.
The fate of the show will be decided by August 25, watch the pilot and decide if it’s worth supporting!
