Kevin Smith Promises Walk-On Role In Exchange for "Clerks 2" Help

by | June 14, 2006 | Comments

Web geek alert! Online frequenter and man-of-the-people Kevin Smith, AKA Silent Bob, is hosting a contest of sorts for his web-savvy fans, with a walk-on role in his next film going to the first-place winner.

In his online diary, Smith issued a missive last week to fans salivating for a role in the next View Askew production: get the "Clerks II" promotional banner up on as many web locations as you can by the day the pic is released, in exchange for some sweet View Askew prizes!

You too can help Jay and Silent Bob conquer the internet

The person who helps pimp "Clerks II" with the most unique locations in their online guerrila advertising campaign by midnight on July 21 will win a coveted walk-on role in Smith’s as-yet-unannounced next film, which he notes will shoot in early 2007.

Runners up will also receive some cool swag, including a signed "Clerks II" script, a set of Jay and Silent Bob cast statuettes, Mooby’s fast food props, and the T-shirt and Mooby’s uniform off of Randal’s back.

"When, Lord, when? WHENS GONNA BE MY TIME?"

Smith’s suggestions for spreading the online "Clerks II" graffiti include getting the banner on "as many websites, messageboards, MySpace pages, and blogs as possible."

For more info (and the HTML code with the "Clerks II" banner), check out Smith’s blog here.

"Clerks II" wriggles into theaters July 21 and stars Quick Stop returners Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson, as well as Rosario Dawson, Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Ethan Suplee, Wanda Sykes, Kevin Weisman, and of course, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.
