Take a #SelfieWithNorm.
Well, kind of. Let us explain.
As many of you may already know, most of the TOH TV guys have joined Twitter to share updates from jobsites and chat with YOU, the fans. BUT! TOH master carpenter Norm Abram is the only holdout. Norm has been on the fence about joining the party, but wouldn’t it be great if we could convince him to join Tommy, Roger, Richard, and Kevin over at Twitter in time for the premiere of the 35th anniversary season of TOH?
That’s where you come in. We’re squatting on @NormAbramTOH and we’ve got (not one, but) TWO amazing downloadable Norm faces available here and here. Here’s the plan: Let’s show Norm some love by tweeting our funniest, coolest #SelfieWithNorm photos and HOPEFULLY our outpouring of affection will get him to take over the account we’ve set aside for him.
Whatdya say? Click the links above to choose YOUR favorite Norm face (we’ve got Smiley Norm and Side-Eye Norm), print it up, cut it out, and load your #SelfieWithNorm to Twitter. Because, you know, if we build it…he will come…to Twitter. Or something like that. -ts
