Ok, it’s Friday before the holidays, and this is admittedly an innocuous story we’ve been following, but ever since the news of YouTube star Fred’s first full length feature film—Fred: The Movie—getting made, we’ve been hooked. Like which name actor they are casting to play Fred’s dad. Even the New York Times decided to jump on the Fred movie bandwagon with an in-depth look earlier this month. We did learn that “budding British singer and actress” Pixie Lott co-stars.
And what to our wondering eye did appear on craigslist last night, but news that there’s a yard sale in LA’s Silver Lake neighborhood on Sunday for props, set dressing and costumes from the film’s shoot this fall. We’ll probably get up early on Sunday (7 AM start) and attend this, if only to talk to some die hard Fred fans in the flesh. We will try to get some of these fans on the record, perhaps on video, for your enjoyment.
Also for your amusement, we’ve included Fred’s official “Christmas is Creepy” music video (above) which blew past 3 million views this month. The four-track album is available on iTunes and features another popular single “Christmas Cash.”
Fred star Lucas Cruikshank is also attached to star in Emo Boy alongside Jaime King in the movie based on the comic book series from Steve Emond. If you feel like wagering on the success of Fred: The Movie, it’s already trading over at Hollywood Stock Exchange. Today’s quote: $14.22 (up$.13 today), which is off slightly from it $15 “IPO” on November 25th.
