If there’s anything Outsiders love to boast about, it’s their trucks and the stuff they keep stored inside. While my old F-250 boasted a collection of heavy chains for pulling friends from snowbanks and a plethora of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee cups, “NCIS: New Orleans” alum Lucas Black plans to “question your manhood” if you don’t keep one particular item rolling around on the floorboard.
If you don’t have WD-40 in your truck I question your manhood. #bringmasculinityback— Lucas Black (@TheLucasBlack) January 9, 2022
As one of Hollywood’s most outspoken country boys, our former “NCIS: New Orleans” star insists that if you don’t carry a can of WD-40 in your truck, then you fall low in the pecking order of “manhood.” And after all, as Jimmie Allen, Justin Moore, and Sean Stemaly insist on their HIXTAPE track “WD-40 4WD,” all you need to be country is some WD-40 and a 4WD. Right?
Apparently, Lucas Black’s got it covered, though other Outsiders were quick to comment on the Tweet, sharing some of their own favorite possessions to keep handy beneath the bench seat. That is, in addition to listing their go-to WD-40 variations.
“Make sure its WD-40 Silicone,” advised one of the “NCIS: New Orleans” star’s followers. “It deters dirt. Regular WD-40 will not.”
Another follower added, “Not only that, I have duct tape and jumper cables, too!”
However, one of Black’s followers definitely brought home the win with the comment, “WD-40, The Working Man’s cologne.”
Lucas Black Left ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ for Family Reasons
Lucas Black possesses many of the defining characteristics of a true Outsider and country boy. That said, his Southern drawl and witty humor served as a major draw for “NCIS: New Orleans” during its time on the air. And while his departure eventually served as the final blow in the spin-off series’ termination, it was actually the reasoning for his departure that makes him even more admirable.
Lucas Black starred on “NCIS: New Orleans” for six of its seven seasons on CBS and drove many of the forerunning storylines. However, as we know, all good things must come to an end and for the hit procedural series, that was the departure of character Christopher LaSalle.
In speaking to his departure, Black shared, “All throughout my career, there was a concern because I would observe how the entertainment industry would destroy families…It was time, it was time for me to leave.” Black further admitted, “You can’t keep going at that pace, and I think, and have a healthy marriage. It’s not sustainable.”
In regards to his family versus his “NCIS” career, Black overall remained concerned that the fast pace and constant traveling would eventually result in the dissolve of his marriage and family overall.
