You would think Charlie Sheen's spectacular career implosion would have faded following his rants, media appearances, and constant tweets about #winning. But alas, it seems that every day brings with it some new, bizarre twist in the 45-year-old's downward spiral — enough to keep interest high.
On Monday, Sheen appeared atop a building in Beverly Hills, waving a machete and drinking what he claims was "tiger blood" (or Gatorade) to celebrate his official firing from the CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men."
He later commented to TMZ on the situation in another less-than-coherent diatribe: "This is very good news," he said. "They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshisc*ck again, and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."
Today, Fast Company is reporting that Sheen has added a paranormal investigator to his digital PR camp.
The actor tweeted that he was looking for new social media intern. "Do you have #TigerBlood? Are you all about #Winning? Can you #PlanBetter than anyone else? If so, we want you on #TeamSheen as our social media #TigerBloodIntern!" That was enough for Phillip Daggett-Brunelle — who applied for the position and was reportedly accepted by Sheen as part of the new #TeamSheen group. "I gave him my 75-character pitch that he couldn't refuse," wrote Brunelle to Fast Company.
Brunelle runs the website MassMostHaunted.com, which according to its YouTube channel, offers investigations "of the most haunted places to offer compelling paranormal evidence through videos of ghosts, poltergeists, spirits and residual haunts."
The videos themselves are rather silly — utilizing scary music, countdowns and a picture of Brunelle-Phillips to introduce each "investigation." I'm not one to absolutely deny the existence of spirits, but nothing in these flicks convinces me otherwise; they're nothing more than a play for traffic.
Knowing this, it makes perfect sense why Sheen would be interested in Brunelle-Phillips. Going forward, he's going to need all of the magicians, wizards and agents of smoke and mirrors he can recruit to have any hope of resurrecting a #winning career.
That's one ghost that may have gone towards the light a long time ago.
