Funny Or Die’s Pacey-Con steals the show from Comic-Con

Pin it


While Comic-Con raged, sputtered and presumably died* across the street, Pacey Witter was staging his own convention in a San Diego park. Actor Joshua Jackson, who played every high school girl’s favorite character, Pacey, on the WB series "Dawson’s Creek," set up his own "Pacey-Con" (subtitled "Capeside to San Diego") for… well, no reason.

Jackson spent most of his time during this amusing stunt by reading random "Dawson’s Creek" fan fiction into a megaphone, then charged excited passerby $10 a pop for his autograph. Gawker notes that he probably did a lot of making out, as well.

Hopefully, we’ll have a video soon, but in the meantime, Vulture’s take on it is visual stimulation enough:

Fringe’s Joshua Jackson – who, of course, played Pacey Witter on Dawson’s Creek for the show’s six seasons – staged an event in honor of both his character and the show. Jackson handed out fan fiction he apparently wrote himself and took pictures with adoring female fans while the Creek theme music blared from a boom box (good luck trying to get that out of your head now). And from the looks of it, Jackson decided to dress like Pacey, too. [Vulture]

*Anyone else getting the feeling that Comic-Con, which once was to comic book adaptations what Sundance was to independent film, is a total embarrassment? Sundance got taken over by the Hollywood mainstream years ago… and now it looks like Comic-Con is just another big ad for whatever crap Tinseltown is promoting this year.
