Today’s the day Mike Arrington’s new assistant Greg will be wandering the streets of Silicon Valley, doing everything — and anything — that you ask him to do.
We’ve already received a bunch of hilarious tasks (dares?) — but we want even more to make sure Greg is thoroughly
embarrassed occupied, so please keep them coming. Since all of the money is going to charity, the Golden Gate Labrador Retriever Rescue, we are going to give priority to those suggestions that offer the most money.
Want Greg to streak through Union Square? That could go for $200, wouldn’t you think so? Take a shot every 15 minutes? That could go for a good $10 a shot, and be worth every penny to watch, right? Don’t go it because you want poor old Greg to get drunk and naked in public: do it for the Labradors!
We’ll choose Greg’s first challenge around 11am (PT) and we’ll keep going for at least a couple of hours — even longer if we receive enough amusing/entertaining tasks. To get Greg to do your bidding, just tweet your task (and your bid — for the Labradors!) using the #ZaarlyGreg hashtag. I’ll be following him with a TCTV camera crew to record the tasks, and I’ll also update this post from 11am whenever anything ridiculous happens (which will probably be often).
Send your tasks and bids via Twitter right now: hashtag #ZaarlyGreg
