As part of Comedy Central’s ‘Night Of Too Many Stars’ Celebrity Auction, an auction to rally support and raise money to support autism school, programs and services, actor Aziz Ansari is offering to tweet for one lucky eBay bidder for 15 minutes.
Ansari, best known for his role as Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation, will tweet for you for a quarter of an hour…if the price is right. According to the description on the eBay bidding page, “Aziz will tweet from his own @azizansari account to kick things off and his tweets from your personal Twitter account will include at least one photo proving he is ghost-writing your tweets. Actual timing of the 15 minute period to be determined upon the conclusion of the auction.”
The auction began on Sunday, October 21, during the Comedy Central event. The auction closes on Halloween, October 31, at 9am PDT.
The current bid, at the time of this posting, is $610, the highest of 27 bids so far. Seem pricy for a mere fifteen minutes? Keep in mind that in addition to the fact that it would be pretty cool to have Aziz take over your Twitter, you’ll also have your account promoted to Aziz’s 2.3 million followers and who knows how many new followers you’ll rack up yourself by the end of the 15-minute tweet-a-thon.
So how much would you be willing to bid to have Aziz Ansari tweet for you for fifteen minutes?
