The Arrested Development LinkedIn profiles feature the famous characters from Arrested Development as a publicity stunt to get a writer a job.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, an Arrested Development rumors says Portia De Rossi had plastic surgery, but the Arrested Development actress denies the rumors. De Rossi also claims her vegan diet keeps her looking young.
The Arrested Development LinkedIn profiles were the brainchild of freelance copywriter Justin Racz, who created LinkedIn profiles for Tobias Funke, George Bluth Sr. and G.O.B Bluth after a friend suggested he capitalize on the show’s fame. The Arrested Development LinkedIn profiles of course link back to Justin Racz.
Justin Racz explains why he created the Arrested Development LinkedIn profiles:
“I thought it would be a great way to ride kind of the coattails of the buzz for it. I’m not kidding when I tell you this it is my lullaby. I have heard … each show multiple times … so like a child listening to a lullaby who knows the story and can just fall asleep, that’s what I would do. I would put it in my computer and close my eyes and fall asleep. It was my lullaby.”
Recruiters apparently have been contacting the Arrested Development LinkedIn characters for potential jobs. Racz has been fielding these emails in character:
“Recruiters, creative recruiters, have emailed and thought I’d be great for different clients, that my humor would be spot on for certain brands, so I’m speaking to a few of them.”
