Charlie Sheen -- Cashing in on the Crazy

3/12/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has been all over the Internet these past few weeks, but there's never been an official home for all the warlocks to gather ... until now.

Sheen launched his official website last night, complete with its own unique rant video. The Vatican Assassin is using the site to sell tickets to his shows in Detroit and Chicago ... and to peddle a few t-shirts with his favorite Sheenisms. 

Charlie Sheen -- winning the Internet one step at a time.

You seem to have it wrong Harvey. A better "headline" would be;


TMZ -- Cashing in on Charlie Sheen.

The problem is- he's got no dignity or humility. He may not realize it but he's slowly going down the path to obscurity like so many other drug-addicted, egomaniacal celebrities. One day he's going to be a sick, washed-up, penniless old man telling people: "Remember me? "I'm Charlie Sheen. I was the star of Two and A Half Men".

Jan,

I hope at the least that would be his future. I think this guy is just going to explode one day/night, possibly killing himself or someone else.

To all the LOSERS out there, the following NY Times article is evidence that Charlie is WINNING!!

He is single-handedly saving the US economy -- read closely and you will see that he has contributed greatly to Twitter's current valuation of between $4.5 and $10 BILLION. He -- The Condor of Calabasas -- has added between $1 BILLON to as much as 6.5 BILLION to Twitter's valuation!!

CHARLIE SHEEN FOR PRESIDENT. He will put Obama, Bush, and Clinton to shame in so many ways . . . hehehe . . .

AS CHARLIE SHEEN TWEETS, TWITTER’S VALUATION GROWS
BY EVELYN M. RUSLI

The actor Charlie Sheen has posted the word “winning” more than a dozen times since starting his Twitter account on March 1.

It may seem like a peculiar mantra, given the recent spectacle of his life and his many bizarre interviews. But the man, who claims to be a warlock chock full of tiger blood, is indeed “winning” on Twitter. He attracted one million followers in 25 hours, becoming the fastest user to reach that milestone — beating out Twitter personalities Ashton Kutcher and Lady Gaga.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Sheen had 2.4 million followers.

An analyst with Wedbush Securities, Lou Kerner, argues that Mr. Sheen’s popularity also justifies a high valuation for the micro-blogging site.

In a new note, Mr. Kerner compared Mr. Sheen’s tweets to “Lazy Sunday,” a video clip from “Saturday Night Live” that went viral on YouTube in 2005, with two million hits in one week.

“ ‘Lazy Sunday’ launched YouTube into the spotlight and 10 months later, Google purchased YouTube for $1.65 Billion,” he wrote.

Mr. Sheen’s success illustrates how others, including corporations, can leverage Twitter’s platform to rapidly build an engaged audience, Mr. Kerner says.

“At this point, the floor of Twitter’s valuation should be $10 billion. If they sell, they should get a premium to that,” he said in an interview with DealBook on Wednesday.

One investor, Chris Sacca, has bought about $400 million worth of private shares of Twitter through his fund in recent months, implying a valuation of $4.2 billion to $4.5 billion. (JPMorgan Chase is a major investor in Mr. Sacca’s fund.)

That’s up from Twitter’s valuation of $3.7 billion in December, when it last sought financing.

Still, Biz Stone, a co-founder of Twitter, told Reuters last week that there were no plans for an initial public offering any time soon.

For Mr. Sheen, Twitter has become a highly profitable endeavor. Through Ad.ly, a marketing service that matches celebrities and brands, Mr. Sheen is selling endorsements through Twitter messages — his current going rate, according to the report, is more than $50,000 per tweet.

“It’s so embryonic, marketers love Twitter — it’s what’s happening right now and that’s so powerful,” Mr. Kerner told DealBook.

Charlies show sold out in minutes in Detroit. The theater, the Fox, holds 5,000 people, there are 1400 tickets already available on stubhub, 90 minutes after they went on sale. Everyone bought them hoping to make a score but in the end they won't be able to give them away
