In Los Angeles and want to trade some goods?
Russell Brand is running a pop up/ exchange shop at The Beverly Center tomorrow where you can come and trade your own things for new things.
He explains it on the official site:
‘Buy Love Here’ is a pop up and exchange shop, where for one day money will have no currency. The shop is the brain child of British comic Russell Brand and will take place between 2pm and 6pm on Thursday the 27th of May 2010, at The Beverley Center in Los Angeles.The idea is to raise debate about the scale of consumer culture and to promote the re-use of products in a surplus society. It is a social experiment to examine shopping habits whilst providing an opportunity for Russell to speak directly with the public and gauge opinion. The day will be filmed as part of an ongoing documentary Russell is currently filming about the pursuit of happiness. COME SWAP YOUR UNWANTED STUFF FOR THINGS YOU MIGHT NEED ‘
Sounds pretty cool right? But we’ve figured out the reason why Russell wants you to save your money.
It’s because on Friday, the 28th, his first starring feature film is being released! Get Him to the Greek, a follow up to his character Aldous Snow from Forgetting Sarah Marshall coming out nation wide.
