Send your friends customizable messages from samuel L Jackson. I've sent out about 30 of them, and I crack up every time. I already bought my rubber snakes and hopefully I can get to the theatre early enough the day before to get a ticket 2 fridays from now! w00t!

That's AWESOME!

Unfortunately he can't recognize any variation of my boyfriend's name or his nickname. I really want to see this movie but I know my BF will refuse because it's so stupid.

What's with all the "this is stupid" SOAP haters coming out of the woodworks lately? Do you all not realize that this movie is meant to be a campfest fanservice no-plot action-thriller? And that the biggest reason the movie is popular is the hype? It's fun to just join in, and make fun of it in a "I love it!" kind of way. I think some people seem to be believing this movie is trying to be more than it is. (I've heard the term "high concept creature movie" thrown around, and comparisons to Anaconda. I don't think it looks like anything of the kind, it's a campfest that's supposed to be bad in a *good* way. Now let's just hope it delivers on that promise.)

Both Samuel L. Jackson and V pause dramatically before saying my name [lol]

I'm sending them to all my friends, but unfortunately someone already sent one to the person I wanted to send it to worst! Lame. Oh well, it's still awesome.

Thanks for posting both of those!

Samuel can't say "Patty"... dangit.

But, I've sent about ten so far. [lol]

The first one was to my husband, because he's a huge Samuel fan. I had to call him in though, because he doesn't check his email unless I help. He laughed so hard he snorted. [Big Grin]

August 4, 2006 - The latest PR gimmick for "Snakes on a Plane" suffered an online crash landing.
The promotion let fans sign up on a website for a pre-recorded call from the film's star, Samuel L. Jackson.

The plan was for users or anyone they signed up to get a personalized taped call from Jackson touting the movie in his own forceful way.

But the movie is so talked about online that when more than 100,000 messages were sent in the first 24 hours, things slithered to a crawl with a different taped message, "try again later."

The site is back up and running, to visit it just click here.

I was so hyped up to see this movie and I probably still will see it, but not next Friday like I wanted because unfortunately my car has been acting up. [Frown]
I'll still make sure that I get to see this movie before it comes to DVD, but by the time I get to it, the hype will probably die down.

Ha, I got one of these from my sister yesterday and then spent an hour sending them to friends. Part of me was thinking, "but it's just spam," while the other part was insisting, "but, but it's Samuel L. Jackson! and he calls you!"

I was pleasantly surprised that they had my name (Julia) in it. It is a rare occurrence for it to be included in things like this. On the other hand, I tried to send one to my friend Mitch and it wasn't in there and neither was "Clark."
