The Larchmont man says he’s one of 250 people, out of 75,000 applicants, picked as a finalist in Charlie Sheen’s social-media internship contest.
“This unique internship opportunity will allow a hard-working, self-motivated, creative, resourceful and social media savvy individual to work closely with Charlie Sheen in leveraging his social network,” according to a website advertising the “#TigerBloodIntern” position.
In a YouTube video, Williamson, who works in marketing, suggests a number of ways Sheen can expand his social-media presence. One idea: develop a Facebook app that allows people to “Sheenanize themselves” by incorporating his image into their pictures. Another thought: set up “Sheendstops” on the location-based application foursquare that lets people “check in” at spots where the actor’s been.
Users “can become the mayor of Charlie Sheenville,” Williamson says in the video. “That’s pretty empowering.”
