The Fluff Campaign

If USA Network thinks Criminal Intent is too serious for their viewers and are looking for lighter fare, then they have sadly underestimated the fans.

If they want fluff in their programming,

we’re sending them fluff.

The Fluff Campaign started with Nantz at the Vinnie Vidi Vici Blog (see link in sidebar) and has taken on a life of its own.

You can find it on Wikipedia:
“In response to news of the impending cast changes, on September 27, 2009, dedicated fans of the series united and launched a grassroots campaign to save departing cast members D'Onofrio, Erbe and Bogosian. Among the more traditional methods of letters, postcards, email and phone calls, the fans included sending jars of marshmallow fluff by the case to express their displeasure at the proposed change of tone for the series to a lighter venue.”

Tell USA/NBCU that we want well-scripted and acted programs. We want our Goren and Eames for another full 8 episodes. USA's byline is Characters Welcome. Well they've just dumped the most fabulous character I've ever had the joy to watch. It seems USA only wants Fluffy Characters. So.....

Send your Fluff (cotton balls, Marshmallow fluff*) to:
Jean Guerin
Senior Vice President, Communications
USA Network
30 Rockefeller Plaza
Floor 21
New York, NY

*With your note to USA, we suggest you end with a comment like - please send excess Fluff to the nearest foodbank.

As part of the Fluff Campaign an anonymous donor on the forum is mailing 10 cases of Marshmallow Fluff to USA offices.

Want to know where you can buy fluff?
here are a few places....
1) At

will send three-packs anywhere for $14 (inc. shipping) and persons can pay by check or credit card.

also Thanks to Chrissy for this link

3) People can buy Fluff by the case and there is NO shipping fee, which is excellent considering the weight of those containers. There is a flat handling fee of $4.99 per order, so I ordered 3 cases and only paid the price of the product plus the $4.99 flat. There was also NO SALES TAX stuck on my order (going from Maryland to Jean Guerin in New York).

Each case is only $27.48, which is less than Amazon, I believe.
Chrissy was able to purchase more than she had originally expected from the money she saved on shipping.
4) from VinneVidiVici
a case of Fluff for $23.13, no tax, shipping included, ships within 3 days, VA adds sales tax
