Every afternoon I stand by a second floor window in the Ed Sullivan Theater and take mediocre photos of guests as they enter and leave the Late Show with David Letterman. In the foreground of each shot is a wad of old gum I noticed on the window ledge. There may be better paparazzi photos on the internet, but this is the only place you'll find the juxtaposition of celebrities and hardened gum. Enjoy!

"Good afternoon, CelebriGum, Steve speaking, can I help you?"
"Hi Steve, this is Ty Burrell. Do you have a moment to chat?"
"Not really. I'm busy taking pictures. I just got you getting out of the car with the phone up to your ear. What do you need, Ty?"
"I know it's awfully short notice, but I'd love a slightly blurry, grainy shot of me crossing behind the town car to step onto the sidewalk, in addition to the standard shot of posing by the door for the paparazzi. Is there any way...?"
"I'll see what I can do, Ty. Gotta go."
CelebriGum comes through in the clutch! You're welcome, Ty!
