Within about sixty seconds of me posting about the news that Chord Overstreet would not be returning as a regular on Glee, I got bombarded with emails from savesamevans.com, a new fan-created website with the goal of keeping Chord and his character around. Their strategies so far include:
- Purchase the song “Billionaire” (the first one that Chord performed on Glee) on iTunes to get it to #1, which it reached over the weekend (it’s at #10 now)
- Sign the “Keep Chord Overstreet As A Regular On Glee” Twitter petition (“twitition”) – they’re up to 11,174 names so far
- Use the #troutymouth and #dontcutthechord hashtags in tweets supporting Chord/Sam
Will the campaign work? It’s too soon to tell, but if I were Chord I’d feel mighty flattered right about now.
