Charles 'Wide Neck' McDowell meets his match: a man with an extremely skinny neck

Headlines 03/12/2018

A man who found fame thanks to a mugshot showing off his extremely wide neck has met up with his polar opposite - a man with an extremely skinny neck.

Charles Dion McDowell was arrested twice in November by Florida police, and faces charges including drug possession, fleeing police and reckless driving.

But what caught the world's attention wasn't his alleged crimes. It was his enormous neck.

The initial Facebook post by the Escambia County Sheriff's Office in Florida was shared hundreds of thousands of times. In the couple of weeks since, McDowell has become a social media star, setting up Instagram and Twitter accounts under the name @damnwideneck and quickly attracting 280,000 followers between the two sites.

His growing notoriety caught the attention of David Samuelson Jr of Flint, Michigan, who's been going under the name @damnlongneck since mid-2018. Samuelson has - as you might have guessed - an extremely long and skinny neck. He also answers to 'Daddy Long Neck'.

"I took selfies in this group and shit, and people were, 'Come on - you look like a Daddy Long Neck,' and shit, so I just took the name," he told YouTube channel Before They Were Famous in August.

Samuelson and McDowell began video-chatting over the internet, taunting each otherand promising a face-off in the ring. McDowell - the one with the wide neck - is a well-built man who's currently training to be an MMA fighter. Samuelson on the other hand, well, it's not just his neck that's extremely thin.

But in a new clip uploaded to McDowell's social media pages, the pair finally come face-to-face - and end up becoming friends.

"Is that f**king Wide Neck?" Samuelson says, emerging from a flax bush and making a sound like a crow.

"Where's that n***a Daddy Long Neck at? I'm about to beat his ass," says McDowell.

But when the pair meet, they shake hands, turn to the camera and declare in unison: "All necks matter."
