Not often I look at a celebrity that doesn’t have a wiki page, makes it way more difficult than it has to be to write these, but Chris, Drama, Pfaff interested me enough on his own. He went from being a nobody to a streetwear designer off of a minor relationship with his cousin. Not too shabby in my book. You might know Pfaff for his appearances on Rob and Big and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory, and a whole host of other Rob Dyrdek shows. He was originally the small shy cousin from way out in the sticks but gained a bit of a cult following.
Regardless, let’s look at what Christopher Drama Pfaff is up to these days.
Christopher ‘Drama’ Pfaff’s Life and Rise to Fame
Chris, Drama, Pfaff was born in 1987 in Ohio. He graduated in 2005 and moved out to California to live with his Cousin Rob Dyrdek, in order to pursue a career as a professional skateboarder. An accident caused him to rethink this career move, he fell and cracked his skull, leading to a coma. He came out okay, with no lasting damage, but I know myself how even one major skating injury can put you off trying anything dangerous in the future. He grew to fame in Rob and Big, and MTV reality show starring Dyrdek and his bodyguard, Chris Boykin. He portrayed the younger naive cousin from the sticks. The show was a hit and led to another, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory.
It was shortly before fantasy Factory began shooting that Pfaff began pushing his clothing line. Taking on many of the lessons taught during Dyrdek’s sponsorship negotiations, and no doubt making good use of the new connections he had access to. Growing up Pfaff was particular about his clothes, the brands he would wear and the style that he was going for. Being a skater he was limited in that area, confined to the Billabong and Quicksilver gear that made its way to the outlet stores in Ohio. He was influenced by Supreme and other big name lifestyle brands that almost pride themselves on exclusivity, low number of brick and mortar stores and highly standoffish staff. He liked the style but knew that it would be out of reach for the kind of kid he was.
A friend designed the logo, and he took it to Five Four Clothing in hopes of striking a deal. He did so and was able to leverage his screen time to grow the brand. He has continued to grow the brand, and expand the business, in the years since the reality show, and is doing very well to this day.
