Inventory Reduction Emergency


When I started CelebriGum nearly three years ago, it was a small-time mom-and-pop (okay, just pop) operation.  

Then growth, success, complication.  In 2011 I moved CelebriGum's offices from the cramped West 53rd Street quarters to a gleaming new skyscraper, One CelebriGum Plaza.  By 2013, I employed a staff of over 200 people to help me run the CelebriGum empire.  

I'll admit that sometimes I miss the old days.  Things were simple then; I just took photos of celebrities with old gum and put them on the website.  Now most of my day is spent going to meetings and dealing with questions, problems, and outright crises. 

Recently I got a call from my Photo Archive Manager, Mitch, on Sub-Level X.  "Mr. Steve, we got a problem.  The archive is getting too full."

"But Mitch, the photos are just computer files stored on hard drives in our server farm, in our blast-proof bunker carved out of bedrock hundreds of feet below street level.  The pictures don't actually take up physical space."

"Well, all I know is everything's beeping and the Command Room main display is flashing 'Low Memory.  Too Many Photos of Celebrities With Old Gum'.  Mr. Steve, you got over 63 million high-resolution mediocre unpublished photos stored down here in the system.  I'm worried she's gonna blow."

"Okay, Mitch, I guess you're right.  Would it help if I took, say, seven photos out of inventory and posted them?"

"Yeah, Mr. Steve, that should do it."

So, in the interest of averting a disastrous underground computer explosion that could damage the delicate bedrock, here are some choice photos that have accumulated in the files.  Some are old, some are new.


Seth Rogen


Will Arnett


Tony Hale


Amanda Seyfried


Joel McHale


Robbie Robertson


Denzel Washington


Crisis averted, for now.  But who knows what lies ahead?

  1. Happy Anniversary! Love that you're still not so big that you can't speak to we little folks. Oh by the way, how tall are you?[photo of you w. Dave sparked my interest]. Thanks.

    1. I'm actually standing on a step. The director wanted us in a certain position, and that meant I had to be on the bottom step of the stairs to the next floor. (Yes, Emmy-nominated Late Show Director Jerry Foley handled the shoot!)
