Chris O'Donnell and the Annual CelebriGum Pledge Drive



Hi folks, sorry to do this to you, but it's Pledge Drive time at CelebriGum.

To keep those wonderfully stupid images of celebrities and old gum coming, we need funds to pay for things like paparazzi flashes during the long winter months.  Otherwise a photo of "NCIS: Los Angeles" star and director Chris O'Donnell crossing 53rd Street looks like this:


Won't you contribute what you can?  Depending on your level of pledge, you'll receive a great thank-you gift like a CelebriGum umbrella, totebag, combination "umbrotebag," or DVD of "CelebriGum: The Movie: On Ice: An Unexpected Journey."

Let's check in and see if we've raised enough funds to hire a paparazzo or paparazza to fire off his or her flash on a cold, rainy New York night.

Nope.

We're close to our goal, but we haven't met it yet.  I hear phones ringing, but I could be hearing more.  I know many of you have been enjoying well-illuminated evening gum photos of stars like Anne Hathaway, Tom Cruise, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition models, just to name a few.  Now's the time to pick up the phone or make an online donation -- hold on -- I'm being told that we've just reached our goal of $25 million!  

Let's get a better look at Chris O'Donnell!


That was definitely worth it.

Thanks to everyone who pledged!  We'll keep that great CelebriGum programming coming your way because of your support!  The rest of you losers can suck it.

NOTE: NO, I'M NOT ACTUALLY SOLICITING MONEY

ALSO, WHILE I WAS CONSTANTLY HEARING PHONES RINGING, IT'S DUE TO A HEAD INJURY

  1. I can't contribute anything monetarily, but I'll use my influence to move the clocks ahead an hour so it will stay light later. I know a guy.

  2. Well damn. I guess you'll have to tear up my check when it arrives.

  3. My contribution is bringing together an all-star cast for a rendition of "We Are The Gum." So far, I have commitments from The Doublemint Twins and Bazooka Joe.

    1. Make sure you get the Doublemint Identical Twins rather than the much-less-impressive Doublemint Fraternal Twins.
