Braces with headgear, ginormous glasses, ill-advised hairstyles — everybody’s acquired a teen or pre-teen picture hiding someplace that they’d slightly overlook. Now these embarrassing moments will help victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Comic Nick Kroll has co-created “Huge Mouth,” a brand new Netflix present about these awkward years that debuted Friday. On Wednesday, he appeared on “The Late Present With Stephen Colbert” and inspired celebrities to share gawky pictures of themselves.
Puberty is “so awkward. There’s catharsis in kind of displaying who we had been and who we turned,” Kroll stated earlier than Colbert shared his personal embarrassing teen picture, one during which he forgot it was image day and needed to put on the photographer’s jacket and tie.
Kroll responded together with his personal picture.
“I am shouting you out, The Rock, I am shouting you out, The Hillary Clinton,” stated Kroll, encouraging massive names to take part.
Colbert then upped the ante by promising to donate cash to Puerto Rican hurricane aid from his charitable fund, the Americone Dream Fund (associated to his Ben & Jerry’s ice cream taste) for each celeb who shares a photograph with the hashtags #PuberMe and #PuertoRicoRelief
“And I will determine who’s a celeb, thanks,” he stated.
As soon as Colbert had checked the stability within the fund, he agreed to Kroll’s suggestion of $1,000 donation per celeb. “And I’ll match that,” promised Kroll.
Since then, stars and common folks alike have been sharing their throwback pictures on Twitter and Instagram. Listed below are just some.
