Do you ever wonder what the lead singer from ’90s band Smash Mouth is up to? Well you should, because it’s better than you might think.
After noticing that the band’s Twitter account wasn’t getting much attention, Jon Hendren, a writer for comedy site Something Awful, challenged Smash Mouth’s lead singer, Steve Harwell, to eat 24
hard-boiled eggs for $20. Hendren was joined by many Twitter users in his call.
Harwell’s choice of charity may come from a sad chapter of his life. In 2001, Harwell’s 6-month-old son Presley died of acute lymphatic leukemia. But now, because of the Internet, St. Jude’s is going to get a lot of money for cancer research. And the guy who sang “All Star” is going to eat a lot of eggs.
Here’s a song written solely to ask Smash Mouth to eat the eggs.
