JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jason Sadler, founder of IWearYourShirt, is known as the “guy who wears T-shirts for a living.” Now he is searching for a new identity – one that will be chosen by the highest bidder. Sadler is auctioning the rights to his last name for 2013 and will legally rename himself Jason “fill-in-the-blank” on January 1st.
“guy who wears T-shirts for a living.”
Sadler has had three last names already, none of which have ever felt like his own, and his parents are getting divorced. This set of circumstances sparked the idea for Sadler to find a new name the only way he knows how, through social media.
Bidding on BuyMyLastName.com to win the rights to Sadler’s last name closes Wednesday, December 12, when one company will win the right to have its name become Sadler’s new last name for all of 2013.
Winning the right for Sadler to share your company name is more than having any average Joe take it as his own – 22 companies have bid already. In addition to legally changing his name, Sadler will continue his social media work using his new last name and providing the winning company with daily exposure to thousands of people on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other sites. Sadler will also change his name on his press bylines.
Sadler has represented over 1,500 brands by being paid to wear their T-shirts and represent them on social media. He is one of 30,000 Verified Accounts on Twitter (out of 500 million), and he has over 9 million views on YouTube. Sadler’s personal blog will also change from JasonSadler.com to Jason“insert new last name”.com.
