I’m a filmmaker & musician named Ari Gold.
My bandmate Adrian Grenier, who also starred in my movie “Adventures of Power,”
was cast in a TV show called “Entourage.”
Without permission, his managers “borrowed” my name for the show.
I didn’t even get a T-shirt.
So I made my own movie called “Entourage.”
Revenge is sweet.
NOTE FROM ARI:
I'm not the only Ari Gold on earth, but I am the best dancer.
People have been asking me for years how much I was paid for giving my name to my friend Adrian's TV show, or conversely, whether I was re-named retroactively by my mother to capitalize on the show. First answer: nothing (they didn't ask my permission); second answer: you are not a smart person.
As for Entourage, it was a Microsoft email client for Mac. My brother Ethan Gold wrote a song about it, and Spacehog's Louis Arogant, Haroula Rose and I made a video. Louis sang and the real-life dance-pop sensation Ari Gold (now going by Sir Ari Gold) gave us some backing-track dance floor emoting. An organic chef named Ari Gold sent good vibes from Portland. And a bunch of friends not named Ari Gold came out and made a video, which is about as coincidentally similar to Avicii & Aloe Blacc's "Wake Me Up" as the name "Ari Gold" is similar to my given name. In other words, a lot similar. I recognized the "Wake Me Up" locations from my movie Adventures of Power so I went back to lovely Piru, California to tell this tale of two beautiful brothers on a quest to find out the meaning of Ari Gold and Entourage. There's a message in it for all of us.
