Man sells his last name for $45,500

8:55 PM, Dec 13, 2012

http://www.firstcoas...-name-for-45500

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- He used to be known as Jason Sadler.


Jason devised the brilliant idea of wearing various businesses' t-shirts and getting paid to do it.


His latest idea involved auctioning off his last name.


For a winning bid of $45,500 by a head set company, he is changing his last name to Jason HeadSetsDotCom.


He said he's changing his name legally, and will put his new name on all of his social media outlets.


And that's quite a reach.


He has more than 40,000 followers on Twitter, and 20,000 subscribers to his two Facebook pages.


Sadler will be Sadler until January 1.


But on the first of the year he'll officially become Jason HeadSetsDotCom.


He said the deal is keeping the last name for a year.


"It's been fun," he said of the whole auction. "You never know where this journey is going to take you when it comes to entrepreneurship and online marketing."

I can't believe someone would pay him that much to do that

I'd do it.

Could use $45,000 right now. And it's only for a year.

I think the internet should get together and raise some money so he can change his name to Jason PornHubDotCom

She had this url PERMANENTLY tattooed on her forehead for the princely sum of $10,000.

Sounds like a slamdunk for this character. 45 geezies and a shoot ton of publicity for his twitter and whatever.

Really, how often do last names come up... Hope he doesn't have plans to marry in 2013

And headsetsdotcom isn't that bad. If it were gaysexdotcom or manlovedotgcdotca, that would be another discussion
