Gilbert Gottfried He was working hard a few weeks before his death – and we have a video of one of his last onscreen appearances… where he looks as racy as ever.
Hollywood Head Office, Brad Volpetells TMZ…His company GG hired March 16 for a Cameo-style ad through a company called Memmo — which allows you to book celebrities for any kind of squawk you might want.
In this case, HO was in the market for a personal message from an instantly recognizable “know-it-all” star—and soon they got to Gilbert. Seeing how his voice is most popular in La La Land… they thought it would be cool.
Volpe says they sent Gilbert instructed on what they were trying to communicate in the video – ie it had to be a puppet so you wouldn’t rent office space from them – but there was a rule that there were no rules in place for the guy… so he could express it in any way he saw fit. .
Welp, Gil produced just that…and did it with hilarious results. We were told that the folks at HollywoodOffices were more than happy with what they got from him – a service that cost them about $1,300.
Seeing how a lot of their clients work in entertainment, Folb tells us he feels Gilbert’s ad was as good as it gets — and of course it was pretty funny…in the true Gottfried way.
You see… the guy looks like his old person, and he seems to be in high spirits for sure – which is why his death It was shocking as it was. His family announced that he died on Tuesday after a long battle with a heart disorder called ventricular tachycardia due to type 2 muscular dystrophy.
Gilbert was only 67 years old. RIP
