Jeremy Piven Offered $1 Million Spokesman Deal From Text Messaging Company
EzTexting.com, a SMS text messaging company, said on Friday that is is offering actor Jeremy Piven $1 million to become its new corporate spokesperson.
Last month, according to OK Magazine, the Entourage star collected a bunch of girls' numbers at Britney Spears' birthday party -- then sent out a mass text saying, "Come to my room - whoever responds first gets me for the night." The, uh, lucky winner is now his new girlfriend, model-turned-waitress Ashley Chandos.
EzTexting.com provides small to medium-sized businesses with a platform to send mass text messages to a target group of contacts.
According to All Your TV, Piven's "booty call" might not be the way that most people would use its service, but the company apparently sees his recent story as a good hook for their service. As the company notes in their press release, "Piven is living proof that a mass text can reach your target audience instantly and provide meaningful results."
