Universal's TrainWreck Premiere Experience contest benefitting the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. Really.
I got to walk the red carpet with my wife Paula at the New York movie premiere. Amy Schumer, the film's writer and star, also foolishly promised a “disappointing lap dance” to the contest winner.
Well, Ms. Schumer delivered on the dance, as you can see in the photos below. It was as great as you might imagine and not at all disappointing.
To celebrate this experience, I'm raising more money for MS. To make a tax-deductible contribution, please visit THE AMY SCHUMER DISAPPOINTING LAP DANCE $5,000 MATCHING CHALLENGE FOR MS. I will match the first $5,000 with my own personal donation. Thank you for helping me support this worthwhile cause. (Bonus: There's a short video of Amy and me on the donation site!)
Read on for more photos from my surreal visit to a Hollywood movie premiere.
MY TRIP DOWN THE RED CARPET
For those who don't know, TrainWreck is a Judd Apatow-directed movie starring Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, LeBron James, Vanessa Bayer, and Colin Quinn. It’s hilarious, raunchy, and ultimately very sweet. Thumbs up from Drug Channels!
The MS cause is personal for Amy Schumer. Her father has multiple sclerosis and currently resides in an assisted living facility. In TrainWreck, the fictional Amy’s father also has MS. Amy and her team were happy to learn that Drug Channels’ readers are the people who develop, market, distribute, dispense, and pay for MS therapies.
Here are some photo highlights from the movie premiere. Click a photo to enlarge it.
OK, not really. Surprisingly, I didn't get a single question about pharmaceutical
economics or the drug distribution system. Perez Hilton, are you listening?
Hey, who took my glasses?
As my daughter told me: "I guess this is the one time getting a lap dance in front of Mommy is acceptable." :)
Cool, right? Now, please make a tax-deductible contribution to THE AMY SCHUMER DISAPPOINTING LAP DANCE $5,000 MATCHING CHALLENGE FOR MS. Thank you!
P.S. Buzzfeed—my son's primary news source—covered my lapdance, too!
