What Celebrity Would Have To Be On A Stamp In Order To Make You Want To Buy That Stamp?

Hahaha. It’s almost crazy that this topic (what celebrity would have to be on a stamp in order to make you want to buy that stamp) hasn’t been discussed on Videogum before, but it’s probably only because there has never been a piece of news to introduce us into the discussion. But, finally, here’s that piece of HOT HOT HOT US Postal Service news we’ve been waiting for, to get our imaginations going! From SlashFilm:

If you’ve ever really wanted people who handle your mail to know you’re a film fan, the US Postal Service has the answer. They’ve just created four new stamps featuring four of the greatest directors of all time: John Ford, John Huston, Frank Capra and Billy Wilder. Designed by Derry Noyes and Gary Kelley, each stamp portrays one of the director’s best known works. For Ford, it’s The Searchers. Huston, The Maltese Falcon. Capra, It Happened One Night and Wilder, Some Like It Hot.

“OOOoooooohhh.” – Linda from Bob’s Burgers voice. Although these directors ARE great and we probably DO like a bunch of those movies, or at least pretend to, I think it’s safe to say that none of us will be buying these stamps or caring about them or would have even heard of them if I didn’t choose to talk about them right now for some reason (the game). But obviously this leads directly to the question/game: WHO WOULD HAVE TO BE ON A STAMP IN ORDER FOR YOU TO WANT TO BUY IT? These are my honest choices: 

  • Vincent Gallo

Oops! That’s it. Vincent Gallo is probably the only celebrity whose stamp I’d buy. But it’s definitely safe to say that if Vincent Gallo were on a stamp I would buy A BUNCH of those stamps and probably even put one in a frame? It would be a very funny stamp! Soooo, how about you? When you thought about this in the past, what celebrities did you come up with? Ryan Gosling, probably? Dan Harmon? (Vincent Gallo?)
