Kevin Smith to Tweet for 24 Hours on Labor Day

September 4, 2009

Writer/director Kevin Smith, to promote his new book "Shootin' the Sh*t with Kevin Smith", is going to hold a 24 hour Tweet-a-thon this Monday. Fans will be able to engage the director via Twitter all day and all night, making Smith one of the most accessible directors working in Hollywood. So why is he going to such lengths to interact with his fans?

Kevin Smith said in his press release:

This is not news at all. In fact, it's kinda stupid. But I wanna see if I can do it. I've been training for this my whole life, simply by being a lazy fat-ass who'd rather stare at a screen than better himself with a brisk constitutional. Someone asked what my training regiment is gonna be, and I told them I've already stockpiled lots of Count Chocula.

So there you have it. The man is lazy and likes his Chocula.

His next movie will be A Couple of Dicks, which has had good buzz surrounding it. Will you be spending your Labor Day chatting up Kevin Smith around a bowl of Lucky Charms? It's a good time to pick the man's brain and find out if Jay and Silent Bob will ever see the big screen again.

The best part of this publicity stunt is the fact that you can hit Smith up pretty much wherever you are. Ahh, the internet is a wonderful thing.
