Larry David Takes ‘Charity Bribes’ Bait, Joins Twitter

A couple of months ago, we told you about the latest project from former BBDO copywriter/current Google employee Chris Baker, who decided to have a little fun with celebrities, get them to do something atypical, and support their charities in the process via a project dubbed “Charity Bribes.” The first celeb on Baker & Co.’s list was none other than Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm mastermind, Larry David, who the group has been trying to lure into the Twitterverse. Well, it took a little bit of time, but Baker informed us this morning that “It fucking worked. Larry joined twitter. His people got in touch with us and he sent his first tweet Friday night.”

As you can see above, the comedic maestro’s first tweet as @LarryDavid4 calls for the “Bribes” crew to make good on their offer and pay his organization of choice, the Natural Resources Defense Council, which has made its way into Curb storylines in seasons past. See a larger image of David’s first tweet after the jump. Next up to bat on the “Charity Bribes” list? None other than Conan O’Brien (below). Go here to join in on the fun or submit your own celeb bribes and vote.
