Filmmaker and raconteur Kevin Smith has entered an advertising and promotional agreement between penny auction company Beezid and his Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast, which is available on Smith’s Smodcast network and via iTunes.
Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will review one of Beezid’s products in a Gadget feature on each of the weekly podcasts, and then will autograph it to be given away as a competition prize on Beezid. A code announced on the podcast is required to enter the contest.
Additionally, one entrant each quarter will be chosen to attend a recording of the Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast at the Jon Lovitz Podcast Theatre at Universal CityWalk in Los Angeles, flight and hotel included.
The deal seems to be the latest in Smith’s efforts to run his career outside of the traditional Hollywood model, as he did with the release of his most recent film Red State.
