FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
After much soul-searching and serious contemplation about the upcoming election for President of the United States, I, Adam Fellbur have decided to endorse John Kerry for the nation's highest office. I believe that this is the most important election in the last 10 years. It is the responsibility of each and every celebrity to give back to the country that has given us so much. Playing a central role in this important election is the least we can do. After all, we are Americans first and celebrities second.
Recently several other famous celebrities including Bruce Springsteen have gone on record with an endorsement for Mr. Kerry. While Bruce and I have not seen eye to eye on a number of issues in the past, as two Americans "Born in the U.S.A.," I am pleased to say that Bruce and I stand together on this one.
Over the past few months I have been wrapped up in production on my new reality show "Life After Skippy," which I think (fingers crossed) is going to be a big big hit. This project, which is discussed in detail on www.adamfellbur.com, sort of picks up where my 1969 sit-com "Life With Skippy" (I was one of the stars) left off. I can assure the American public, that the timing of this endorsement and my coinciding up-coming reality TV show are purely unrelated and that this announcement was in no way solicited by the Kerry campaign. However, if some of my celebrity exposure should shine a light on John Kerry and put him in the White House, making the world a safer place, all the better.
I will also be appearing at the Cherry Hill Nostalgia Expo on November 11th and 12th from 11 to 5. This is always a fun show to do. The Jersey fans are always so nice. Some places give you a hard time about charging $5 for an autographed B&W photo and $8 for a color 8x10 but not Jersey. Depending on the mood of the crowd, I might be convinced to do a Life With Skippy scene reencatment. The last time we did this, In Buffalo I think, went over huge. Again, I will have to play it by ear.
And yes, Life With Lincoln, the musical I am working on is going swimmingly. I am really excited about this. I am currently putting the finishing touches on the assignation scene. I thought the original assignation was far too negative and feel that audiences will appreciate a more positive approach to the murder of Lincoln. Well have to wait and see but I am very, very hopeful.
And yes, I am very comfortable with my decision given John Kerry's life of selfless public service. Having spent seven years in a Vietnamese POW camp would have done in a lesser man. Not John Kerry. Given my own experiences in Hollywood I know what he must have gone through. Returning to this country with an armful of awards, Mr. Kerry dedicated himself to the business world, where he, from scratch, built up the Heinz ketchup company into the giant corporation it is today. I can say that from my experience in television, it is not easy to be the driving force behind something so successful.
Over the past few days, I have left a number of messages for John Kerry at his campaign headquarters to discuss campaign strategy. I have full confidence that with myself and other influential personalities as his advisors, we can be a major boost for the Kerry Presidential campaign. See you in the White House.
