Step asidethat guy who said, "The British are coming," there's a new American hero in town. Guff interviewed Clift, who had this to say about the whole stunt:
"I've been growing my beard out for about 6 months and I was honestly just getting tired of it. As sort of a half-joke I posted on Facebook that I was going to shave my beard and if anyone wanted it I'd totally mail it to them. A friend suggested that I mail it to Ted Cruz ,which was just so weird and funny to me. I made another Facebook post telling everyone that if I got 100 Facebook likes I'd actually do it and I got that in like 45 minutes."
"Is this satire? Sure. I think what's funny about it is that Ted Cruz seems like such a weirdo. Like, of course that guy wants a bag of hair. "
"Dear Ted Cruz, I didn't think you looked masculine enough so I shaved off my beard and have included it with this letter. You may glue it to your face at your leisure. I'm aware this is an unorthodox donation so I've also included one US dollar. Good luck with the whole `trying to be president thing.' Love, Joey Clift."
Technically, it isn't illegal to send hair in the mail so Joey's probably in the clear as far as calls from the Secret Service go. Still, we'd hate to be the intern they're going to make fish that dollar out of that bag.
