WASHINGTON: Canadian-American actor Jim Carrey, gave away a brand new Chevy Blazer car to appreciate the hard work of a crew member of his upcoming action-adventure comedy film ‘Sonic 2’.
The production sources told TMZ that Jim who has been shooting in Vancouver city for ‘Sonic 2’, wanted to do something fun for the crew and show his thanks for their hard work, “so he held a raffle … and the grand prize was a Chevy Blazer RS.”
The winner was announced on Friday morning (local time) and the crew member, who worked as a grip, has been given the keys to his lavish new ride.
TMZ reported that the base model of Chevy Blazer RS retails for over USD 40,000, and hence the giveaway is undoubtedly a pretty big gesture on his part.
