People should know better by now than to give the cast of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia money – because they will go out and spend it on Arabian Horseflies.
So Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney have come up with a new hair-brained scheme in order to help them save some cash – and do some good for charity while they’re at it.
Hey, even these guys know when to support a good cause!
In a hilarious new video, Charlie and the rest of the It’s Always Sunny team reveal that they’re launching a prize on Omaze for one lucky fan to come and be a featured extra on season 14 of the whacky comedy.
Shot behind-the-scenes of the show, Charlie is seen panicking about being way over-budget, after Rob bought himself a ‘bunch of Super Bowl rings’ which makes no sense seeing as he’s not on the team.
But that doesn’t matter too much to Rob, who then reveals the new campaign.
You will be able to guest star in the show and (potentially) get a speaking role (Picture: Omaze/YouTube)They get to save some cash on extras, some lucky fan gets to hang out on set, and a charity gets some dollar in the process – everybody wins!
Rounding up the rest of the gang, Rob politely explained: ‘We’ll take him for all he’s worth, or her, and then we don’t have to come to work anymore. Two problems solved.’
‘We’re getting free labour, disguised as charity!,’ Charlie happily adds.
Way to win us over there, dudes.
The gang are getting free labour disguised as charity (Picture: Omaze/YouTube)Thankfully, they put in a bit more effort for the main plug (hey, we said a bit!) and call for independently wealthy fans who can work for free and dream of instant fame to pledge for the prize.
‘Comedy legend’ Glenn Howerton (Dennis) also throws his thoughts in and said: ‘If Kaitlin can be on television, then anybody can.’
Cue Kaitlin Olsen (Dee) reminding everyone of the time he was replaced by a sex doll for an episode in season 13 and nobody noticed.
(We noticed. It’s now burned into our eyes forever.)
Charlie and Rob drive quite the hard bargain in the name of charity (Picture: Omaze/YouTube)The money raised will go towards the Hole In The Wall Gang – a US charity that sets up a summer camp for children and their families battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
As part of the prize (which is for you and a friend), you will also be flown out to LA and put up in a four-star hotel…or the upstairs room in Paddy’s, they haven’t decided yet.

So if you want to go hang out with these self-centred, horrible people (according to a critic), you can donate here.
Please do not send it to Charlie, for IRS purposes.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia is available now on Netflix.
