The people have spoken. Thanks to a grass-roots campaign led by ordinary citizens from across the country, stubborn Paramount execs have bowed to public pressure and granted the low-budget supernatural thriller Paranormal Activity the wide release it so richly deserves. In a rare victory for the principals of democracy, the studio suits made good on their promise to open the movie nationwide if they received at least one million requests to do so. That’ll teach those pompous Hollywood fatcats to deny the will of the people!
But it wasn’t just average people who came to Paranormal Activity‘s aid. Celebrities chipped in as well, utilizing their favorite communications medium — Twitter — to help spread the word. Below are actual Twitter posts from just a few of the big names who heroically donated their time for the sake of this brave little movie:
David Spade (Grandma’s Boy, Racing Stripes, The Emperor’s New Groove)
