FIRST FOUNDED in 1991, Guster is an alternative rock band from Boston.
On Saturday, April 2, 2022, a photo of college basketball reporter Matt Norlander went viral when his laptop came up with a sticker that read “Guster is for LOVERS” at March Madness.
Why is Guster trending?
During Saturday night’s Final Four games, Matt Norlander took a seat behind the bench at Duke, North Carolina, laptop in hand.
His computer has a large, bumper-like sticker that reads “Guster is for LOVERS.”
Fans of both the band and the sport quickly recognized its subtle reputation and immediately took to the internet to draw attention to the sticker.
Sportswriter Rodger Sherman wrote via Twitter: “two timeless icons of the Final Four: Coach K and @MattNorlander’s laptop sticker GUSTER IS FOR LOVERS.”
Social media sleuths have pointed out that Norlander’s Guster sticker has indeed been seen before, dating back to at least 2016.
The official Guster account also went on Twitter, To write: “Ready for prime time y’all. #sports”, next to a photo of the laptop.
