    Hey guys... for you Kevin Smith fans, this is pretty cool (if you have a MYSPACE account).

    Check this link:

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...endID=89143187

    Go there, add them as a friend, then hit the big purple button.

    First 10,000 people get their names in the credits of CLERKS 2 for all time!

    I hope this isn't a violation of HTF terms or anything, I just thought it was cool.

    TRUTHFUL BACKUP: http://www.myspace.com/therealkevinsmith (see the announcement there)


    HURRY!!!!! Less than 6000 names remain!

    Nice idea, but it's not worth setting up a myspace account for it.

    Well I did. It took less than a minute, and now I'll be in the credits. Awesome.

    Added to my list. It'd be funny if it was printed so small that you could barely read it. Like that Simpsons episode where Bart is trying to prove to the other kids that he works on The Krusty Clown Show. "Bert Storch" "No, it looks like Betty Simington" [​IMG]

    FATBOY ROBERTS IN THE HOUSE

    Sorta sucks it's the myspace name and not your actual name. Actually, I wanted to change my name to www.cortandfatboy.com but I thought that'd be pushin it [​IMG]

    If you read the "legal info", it says it will be your MYSPACE name as well as the legal name associated with your account when you signed up.

    Darn, I missed this by about half an hour. It would have been cool to see my name actually up there on the credits, but oh well.

    Someone set up a fake account (the one Kevin mentioned in his post) which is the one I hit up before the apparently real one went live; thus I missed the boat. What a stupid way to operate a contest, without an official URL right off the bat.

    Yeah Adam, that's crazy. I saw the fake one yesterday morning at 8:30 am and figured I missed the boat entirely. Cooincidentally, I sat down at my comp @ 5pm and saw that there was a real one!

    I didn't even think to look again. I'm not that pissed; having my name be one of 10,000 would have only come across as cool to a, shall we say, unique subsection of my friends.
    It does make me question why a studio would want to launch a contest that garners more ill will than good will. There's over 30,000 "friends" to that account, which means 2 out of every 3 are coming away disappointed. The only thing I can think of is that any publicity is good publicity in neo-Miramax's view.
