    "To be honest, [I] did not know when or how the phone call was going to happen, but it did happen,” he said. “We're about 20 phone calls in, and we're in competition right now on who can leave the longest voice note.”

    Gibson then gave his best impersonation of Johnson leaving him a voice memo on his phone.

    “I’m going to make this short and sweet brother because your last voice note was like six minutes long so I’m not going to make it that long,” he joked. “Oh shit. I’m now at 10 minutes brother. Anyway, call me back when you get a chance.”
