(Uproxx)   Note to "branding" firms: don't tweet at Patton Oswalt to try to get him to tweet about your brand(s) for money. You'll only get publicly humiliated in the end   (uproxx.com) divider line 40

Why wouldn't they DM him with the offer, or contact his publicist or agent? I'm thinking that he is being paid to advertise the branding firm.

I expect nothing less from him. After all he gave us this awesome tweet to Victoria Jackson

I laughed at the disjointed tweets he posted that, when taken separately, were highly offensive, but when strung together were really quite innocuous. Hilarious.

If you take a look at their account, those guys are tweet spamming any and all twitter accounts of comedians, comedy clubs, comedy shows, etc.

#CockOfCompromise, needs to become a hashtag.

pay them to mention brands that want to sit at the cool kids' table.

Uproxx is making fun of the cool kid's table?

Hypocrisy is having a busy holiday season.

If Patton is not following them, they can't DM him. And this branding company shows one of the worst PR moves - spamming copy/paste tweets.

Why would anyone want an endorsement from the guy who killed Kennedy?

Well, it worked. Brand awareness reached Uproxx, and now Fark (and probably Reddit). This will go viral for a few days.

The marketing geniuses for Brander are laughing all the way to the bank.

You can't slut-shame these people. They want the attention.

My question is: Why Patton Oswalt?  Why not someone really funny like Will Farrell or Martin Mull?

They're only sort of funny.  The real funny is with Larry the Cable Guy and Dane Cook.

If they want a soulless, money-hungry twunt to whore out their brand and products, why don't they just go for the gold standard and wipe their anal glands all over the Twitter account of MrHappyRotter?
 
2013-12-28 12:48:32 AM  
Kinda funny? 3/10? Eh. Brought me here to say something, I guess it sorta worked.

Patton Oswalt has 1.5 million followers. A free insult from him is worth $40k from any other douchebag.

Back in May, Ivory Soap went even further. They somehow managed to make an ad tweet under my account.

I changed my password in a big farking hurry.

Not too shabby.

I'm thinking he just gave it away for free. Multiple times.

Oswalt used to be funny. Now, he always has that same smug look on his face that Bill Maher has, which ruins the humor of whatever he might say.

You're thinking of Oswald Harvey from the Drew Carey Show.

Well, there's one secret he's not hiding. Or that's just an unfortunately shaped sprig of hair between his legs.

No, no, that guy played Jethro Bodine on the Green Acres movie.

It works for Brander but I doubt the products want to be known for giving you explosive diarrhea or being the candy of child molesters

They made a movie of that frontal-lobe tasering Green Acres show??  I'll never be able to un-think that big-screen image and am now scarred for life.  Thanks ever so much.

By the by, that respected elder statesman and arbiter of all things rational and wise, Republican rep.Louie Goober Gohmert, gets his B-thump on at Green Acres Baptist Church.

I looked quickly but couldn't find a client list for this company.  I would think that Oswalt's tweets were targeted at specific clients or potential clients of Brander.  That's going to make the next pitch meetings a bit on the uncomfortable side.  IMHO, he wins.

I dunno, Victoria Jackson's really upped her game after SNL - she makes me want to do handstands. And drool, too.

I followed Patton Oswalt on Twitter for a while.  The comedy gems were few and far between the mounds of self-important hipster douchery.
 
2013-12-28 12:46:03 PM  
I would prefer it if Patton would not rely on references to sexual assault in his jokes.

...huh? Seriously, if this was your moment to shine with regards to how you feel about Patton Oswalt, well, you missed it. He did exactly the right thing here.

And, apparently, he occasionally succeeds.
 
2013-12-28 07:53:55 PM  
I think he's a funny guy and I like everything I've seen him do.  But I'd be interested to know if he's ever done a movie with product placement.
