Chris Baker Returns with Celebrity-Baiting ‘Charity Bribes’ Project

After internet intervening, co-authoring a book and trying to send M. Night Shyamalan to film school, former BBDO NY copywriter/current Google staffer Chris Baker has launched yet another online effort dubbed “Charity Bribes.” This time around, Baker joined forces with fellow copywriter William Burks Spencer (a Y&R/CP+B/TBWA alum) to basically mess with celebs and support charities at the same time.

Their first mission, as you can see above, is to convince Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm mastermind Larry David to join Twitter. How it works is you pledge money to make a bribe happen and if it never comes to fruition, you’re not charged. So far, this inaugural charity bribe has reaped over $600 in pledge money and there are just over 30 days to join in on the action.
