Would You Sell Your Last Name For $34,500?

He’s selling his last name to the highest bidder — and if nothing changes between now and when the auction ends on December 12, 2012, his new name will be Jason JLabAudio. Talk about thinking outside the box!
For a cool $34,500, JLab Audio, an audio company from Tucson, Arizona, will gain the right to have their company name plastered all over Jason’s identify — including his driver’s license, passport, and other ID. I imagine his Facebook, Twitter, and other social media handles will also change.
That’s an interesting way to raise cash. Jason currently has 5 employees, so I can’t see the $34k going very far, but you have to give it to him for his creativity — and the buzz he’s generating is sure to get him added visibility. Read more about Jason on CNN Money.
What about you? Would you sell your last name to a corporation? How much would it take? Be honest!
