Eddie Murphy Really Needs To Rethink His PR Strategy

I’m doing this one Gossip Girl-style (cause I’m nothing if not a teenage girl):

Spotted on the 405: Eddie M, going the extra mile this morning to promote his latest comedy abortion. Guess no one told him Meet Dave’s friend request was denied.

You know what they say, Starship Dave: in this town, you should never get a big head. It only leads to trouble. And freeway delays.

Until then, you know you love me.

*h/t to the evilschultz Twitter file for bravely snapping this picture and not getting into an accident in the Sepulveda Pass. Your journey to the wastelands of Culver City was not in vein, good sir.

    Terrifying. The only thing scarier than Eddie Murphy these days is a giant Eddie Murphy head.

  4. What do you mean “giant” head?

    That’s actual size.

  5. Joss says:

    somebody’s getting a whole lotta head!


  6. Vale says:

    It looks more like Tracy Morgan to me.

  7. Jason says:

    That’s me in the mustang, I followed him around for like 20 minutes before I finally gave up, think he knew I was onto him :P

  8. JG says:

    considering his ego, it’s done to scale!

  9. Joel says:

    Holy Crap! Trees on the 405!

    /Not sure if that’s the 405.

  10. Phil says:

    Can you even point to Culver City on a map you putz?

  11. Kojiro says:

    Not buying it. For such a big head, it doesn’t cast any shadow…

  12. Hanson says:

    Look at all the skid marks on the 405. Thats
    very normal for any L.A. freeway.

  13. I saw this at a service plaza off the Pennsylvania Turnpike about a month ago. If I’d had a camera with me, I’d have blogged it, too.

  14. The Jay says:

    Phil: Did you just get all up in arms about my slight of Culver City? As they say where I come from: uh… gofuckyourself. It wasn’t like I insulted your MOTHER!

  15. noob slurpee says:

    To Kojiro:

    I can see what you’re getting at. The photo does looked doctored. The trees and rear tire of the trailer to the right of the head look fuzzy, and not in the same way as the pixelation that occurs when rendering an image to a lo-res JPEG, but like someone using the clone tool in Photoshop.

    However, I do believe Eddie Murphey would do something like this. Hilarious!

  16. noob slurpee says:

    Oh yeah, this was FARKed.
