Charity Bribes Wants Larry David to Join Twitter

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David is noticeably absent from Twitter. Yet Charity Bribes, a newly launched website dedicated to bribing celebrities into good deeds in exchange for donations to charitable causes, is attempting to change that by bribing David into joining Twitter. The bribe’s mission statement for David reads: He’s hilarious. He’s not on Twitter. He should be. If we raise enough we can convince him.

The premise behind Charity Bribes is that anyone can suggest a potential bribe as well as a charitable organization to benefit if the bribe is successful. In David’s case, if he joins Twitter, the National Research Defense Council will receive the donations. If the bribes are successful, all the money goes to charity. If they aren’t, no one is charged.

Charity Bribes has received almost $7000 in pledges to get David on Twitter, but the creators, ad copywriters Chris Baker and William Spencer, don’t know how to contact the curmudgeonly funnyman. For Baker and Spencer, however, that’s part of the fun. “What’s really fun, what gets people excited, is the element of uncertainty,” Baker said. “We’re putting celebrities in an awkward situation without them knowing about it. If we went to them ahead of time and set everything up, it would lose a lot of the fun.”

So far, David hasn’t responded. In 3 days, after his bribe is up, Charity Bribes will attempt to persuade Conan O’Brien to conduct an interview on his television show while holding a pipe and wearing an eyepatch and turtleneck.
