We haven’t had much to say about the video hits “I’m F*cking Matt Damon” and the sequel “I’m F*cking Ben Affleck” largely because, like a Saturday Night Live skit, they drag past the point of being funny pretty quick. Plus, Sarah Silverman is in them. But, on the other hand, anything that elevates the profile of our local boys done good is fine with us.
Perhaps presidential candidate Barack Obama is a fan, since he’s enlisted the help of Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner to raise money in Boston next month.
The A-list couple will appear at VENU on March 16 at 7 p.m. A $50 ticket gets you in the club to hear the couple talk about why they support Obama, and a $250 V.I.P ticket gives you the opportunity to be separated from the riff-raff and attend a private meet-and-greet where you may be lucky enough to snap a picture with the stars for your MySpace page.
If you’re interested in attending, you can buy tickets here. Who knows? Maybe Jimmy Kimmel will show up to support his man.
