Would You Pay $1,500 To Get A Selfie With Sylvester Stallone?
No? Well, that’s how much it’s going to cost you.
Sylvester Stallone, star of the Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, is going to head over to the UK on a bit of a promotional tour for his latest Rambo movie Last Blood. He’s going to stop by Manchester, London and what I like to call “the Hollywood of England”, Birmingham.
Sly, who you probably remember best from D-Tox or Avenging Angelo, is going to make appearances in each city at black-tie dinner events titled ‘An Evening with Sylvester Stallone’.
What’s ‘An Evening with Sylvester Stallone’ entail? Well, there’s a live interview on stage where you’ll get to see Stallone get asked questions. Questions that we hope will include things like “how long did it take you to write the movie Driven?” and “do you remember making the movie Driven?” and “have you rewatched the movie Driven recently?”
The dinner also includes a three-course meal and an auction selling signed memorabilia, and all for the entry price of 125 pounds or $228 Australian dollars. And while it seems like a night designed to raise money for a local football or netball club it actually all goes towards a company called An Experience With and Sylvester Stallone, who is the multimillionaire star of the movie F.I.S.T.
The highest priced tickets to the event are the ones that come with the “premium photo experience” where you get to take a selfie with Stallone, and that will only set you back a cool A$1,554. It might seem like a lot of cash but it’s roughly the same price as a 687L fridge. What would you rather have? A big fridge or a photo of you and a man built like a fridge?
Fans have been firing up on social media saying “it’s a shame you’d need to sell a kidney to go”. The ‘An Experience With’ company fired back defending the prices saying that “As with any business there are costs involved and this is the same for us as a company. When you take into consideration the costs to bring a celebrity of such status to the UK then you would understand why.”
At the end of the day won’t it be worth it to say that you sat in a room while they auctioned off memorabilia signed by the star of Daylight?
