Bloomberg cuts Sarah’s PSA

Posted by Gator on October 9th, 2014

Curious about what is being labeled on the Internet as a Safe for Work (SFW) version of Sarah’s recently released mature-content PSA for the Equal Payback Project? Don’t be. It’s actually just a joke put together by some Bloomberg producers. They edited Sarah’s 3m:47s PSA down to 11 seconds, then joked that that’s all they could pull that is safe for work.  Leave the humor to Sarah, Bloomberg.

Adweek tells background of Sarah’s new ad

Posted by Gator on October 8th, 2014

Here’s today’s Adweek article that talks about the people who helped put together Sarah’s video for the National Women’s Law Center.

Droga5 was just 2 years old in 2008, with nothing like the profile it has now, when it teamed up with Sarah Silverman for “The Great Schlep,” encouraging Jews to visit their grandparents in Florida and get them to vote for Barack Obama.

“The Great Schlep” won millions of views along with a slew of ad awards. (Talking to Adweek earlier this year, Silverman called the reaction to it “a big beautiful surprise.”) Now, she and the New York agency have reunited for another hilarious political campaign, the “Equal Payback Project,” aimed at closing the wage gap between men and women.

Video: Sarah protests V-tax with sex change

Posted by Gator on October 8th, 2014

Don’t miss Sarah’s new public service announcement concerning the gender gap!

And to learn more about the cause…

Equal Payback Project

 

Go here to see full credits for the PSA video.

UPDATE: This is what Sarah tweeted in response to the extensive online backlash about the video from the trans-gender community who accused Sarah of being  insensitive to their plight:

If I literally got a sex change I would indeed find the work force far less friendly. The video wasn’t transphobic it was transignorant – never crossed my mind. But to my *unintentional* credit- people are talking about it & so begins awareness. Please don’t punish this cause because of my video. I certainly don’t only fight for causes that concern or benefit me and I expect the same of the vital trans community.

Will Sarah be at Garlin/Sheen taping Saturday?

Posted by Gator on October 7th, 2014

We previously told you that Sarah’s boyfriend, Michael Sheen, will be the interviewee when Jeff Garlin does his live taping of his By the Way podcast at Largo October 11. But look what Sarah just tweeted about the show.

100714tweetREsheenATlargoDoes that mean she’ll be in the audience? Or does it mean she’ll be with Sheen, “chiming in” at times, like she did when she was with him in September when Chris Hardwick interviewed him for the Nerdist podcast?  Click the pic below for tickets.

SNL audience victim of Sarah does AMA

Posted by Gator on October 6th, 2014

CapLindseyLapHere’s a Q and the A from the Reddit AMA hosted by Lindsey, the audience member on whose lap Sarah sat as part of the monologue on the October 4 Saturday Night Live. (Lindsey was great, by the way. Watch the clip if you haven’t already; Sarah goes into the audience at 5:45 remainder time.)

Q: Wow, this is awesome, thanks for doing this! I was watching with my buddies last night and I was insisting to them that they had to have let the person know that she was going to be in the monologue on live TV. Guess I was wrong :) Anyways, what was going through your head as Sarah was walking up to you and about to sit on your lap?

A: Nope I had no clue, and I have no connections whatsoever to the show, other than being a fan! (People asked me that afterwards. They thought it was scripted.)

What was running through my head: “holy shit, no this is not happening. Is this for real? Uh, I have to say something?! Don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up… Sit up straight. My hand is on her back – where do I put my hand? I shouldn’t leave it on her back, right? Don’t look at the screen. Shit, I looked at the screen. My friends and family are probably going crazy – I can’t believe this is happening!” And I felt like it lasted forever! Definitely one of the most memorable moments of my life.

And here’s more from Lindsey about her experience at the show: (more…)
