Want Packers great Brett Favre to attend your next Zoom meeting? It will cost you.
Cameo, a celebrity video-sharing site, is now offering 10-minute Zoom calls with Favre for a nominal fee of … $5,000? Your eyes are not deceiving you. The three-time MVP is charging five large—which computes to a whopping 500 bucks a minute—to drop in for a quick hello at your next video conference.
The Hall of Fame quarterback is one of just three athletes you can book on Cameo's new "All in Zoom" feature, joining the likes of skateboarding icon Tony Hawk and Boston Bruins center Charlie Coyle. Hawk and Coyle are both bargains compared to Favre, charging 10-minute fees of $1,000 and $400 respectively.
If Favre’s price tag doesn’t fit your budget, there are other ways you can get in touch with the former NFL MVP. The going rate for a Favre video message is still steep ($300), but not nearly as egregious as his outlandish Zoom demands. You can hit up Favre on Twitter for free, but he’s not on there much, submitting a mere 1,388 tweets since creating his account over eight years ago.
If you think shelling out five grand for Favre is looney tunes, wait until you hear what Jeremy Piven was charging. Best known for his portrayal of mega-agent Ari Gold on HBO’s Entourage, the actor had requested $15,000 for a 10-minute Zoom call, but Piven no longer offers that service after Cameo users complained about his exorbitant asking price.
Getting to chat with Favre—even virtually—would be a thrill for most NFL fans, but the Lambeau legend may not find many takers at that price.
