Jake Woos Fan With Prince of Persia Merchandise

(Because there's happy news today, too!)

Once upon a time, Jake Gyllenhaal was in a movie called Prince of Persia.  It was a magnificent movie, full of sand and ostriches and time travel.

To celebrate its impending release, Jake solicited questions from everyone in the world, but he only liked three of the submissions, and those were the ones he answered in this video:


Two of the questions we don't care about, but the third question (which is actually the second question) was so wonderful that Jake got flustered and accidentally called the questioner Ellen instead of Erin and then gave an overly sexualized answer.

And then we found out that the Ellen in question is really the Erin who is the Erin who is our dear friend Silver!  And since Jake now knows Erin, it's kind of like he knows all of us!  (Except not at all.)

But anyway, in addition to getting her question answered, Erin was also the recipient of this amazing gift set, full of wonderful things that lowly bloggers such as myself long for with ill-contained envy!  She got a Prince of Persia-themed watch, a journal, 2 t-shirts, an arm-strap-thingy, and a poster with a personalized autograph:





One time when I was 14, I came in third in an American Online-sponsored "Lois and Clark" trivia game and won an unsigned 8x10 glossy photo of Dean Cain.

But this is better.

OMG. Yet more (wow, look at that price!) movie-related merchandise for me to covet! I wish Jake would send me a gift basket...

AWESOME!!! Erin, frame that poster and save it for posterity! And how amazing is it to have Jake tell YOU he likes to get sweaty and dirty over a big fire, LOL, unbelievable!
"I think she'd like that"
"Alright!"
Hahaha!
As for the bizarre doll - kinda looks like Brad Pitt in Interview with the Vampire...

Hey, Silver- at least he got your name right on the poster!!! You are one lucky girl. Im slightly jealous (only a lil bit) but VERY happy for you! *does a little dance*

Oh so lucky, Silver! I'm loving that t-shirt.

It's always great when an author, actor, artist, musician, (politician?!), etc. recognizes your admiration and sends you stuff.

My favorite comic book artist and science fiction author has sent me signed copies of their limited edition works, which I treasure.

So excited for you~

I'm with Sam...I'm so happy your name wound up right on the poster! (HAHAHA on you changing your name on Facebook!! That is awesome!)

And KD, I'm totally with you! I have a script signed by all of the writers of Buffy the Vampire Slayer which is one of my most treasured possessions. Now if only I could Jake to sign something with my name on it... ;D

Congrats Ellen . . er, Erin . . wait . . Silver . . ? Oh, whoever the hell you are -- great job with the question!!! :D

Wouldn't it have been great if he would have WORN the shirt before sending it?!?!?!

Lena June 25, 2010 at 8:13 AM  

Hahahaha, Leslie, I like the way you think!!

Look at that! ISJ is taking over the Jake world. I am most positive PG had some hand in getting Silver's question answered since she has a direct connect to Jake and all.

You are one very lucky girl! I, too would like a personalized signed Jake poster.

when did this happen?

Kirsten Dunst and her boyfriend Jason Boesel, drummer of indie group Rilo Kiley.

didnt jake date Jenny Lewis?

Prophecy Girl June 25, 2010 at 2:52 PM  

^^^ Yes. Forever ago.

As for Kiki, I can honestly say that I have never kept up with her love life one way or the other. But if there's anything to say about Hollywood, it's that it's socially incestuous. ;)

Prophecy Girl June 25, 2010 at 3:02 PM  

Oh, and P.S. Mo is right. This was all totally my doing because Jake will do absolutely anything for me (except acknowledge me in public).

I agree with most of your points, however some need to be discussed further, I will hold a small conversation with my partners and perhaps I will ask you some opinion soon.
