For some reason, Joey Graceffa was invited to the Official Grammy Gift Lounge this year, ahead of the Grammys. Photos below.
LA Weekly reports that this year, celebrities will be allowed to walk away with over $25,000 worth of gifts from the booths (per person), if they decide to take every product. They’ll also get a separate $5,000 gift bag.
The Gift Lounge is typically a way for companies to get their products pictured with B or C List celebrities (the A-Listers are usually too embarrassed to be photographed getting handouts).
The price for a company to rent out a booth is also around $25,000 this year.
The Gift Lounge is littered with photographers, and celebrities are expected to pose with their free products, and pretend they love them.
Update: Joey posted a video confirming he got something from every booth. Gibson gave him a second guitar, and Joey will hold a contest for fans to get it.
Joey Goes on a Grabbing Spree in the Grammy Gift Lounge
Joey managed to pick up an iPhone case and an iPad standing case from Devicewear.
Joey made sure to get a hold of WowWee’s children’s toys – which includes Roboraptors, Roboreptiles, MiPosaurs and Elektrokidz Dancing Troll Dolls.
Here he is, aggressively roaring at a plastic dinosaur.
These mechanical, futuristic Troll Dolls were especially popular with the celebrities at this gifting suite – most people wanted one.
Joey also picked up luxury tickets from Rocky Mountaineer, a train company. They were giving away the most expensive gift at the event – a $14,584 train journey through the Canadian Rockies.
Joey also took home some beauty products from Healing Saint by Dr. Jane Cases. He is holding a skin serum and a medicated scalp serum. He doesn’t appear to be balding yet.
He helped himself to a free black backpack from Truth.
He grabbed a massager, and tried using it on both his head and his wrist.
Joey even puts the infamous Japanese Facial Fitness Tool into his mouth. It might show up in a challenge video.
He took a $250 Italian comfort food diet bag from Tisanoreica.
Joey also took something from the Sean John booth.
