About two years ago, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich made a promise that he would do something fun when he cracked the 5,000 follower mark on Twitter. He was certainly a man of his word, as he shared a video of himself smashing his face into a cake. The video is just one example of a long line of entertaining tweets we have gotten from the Academy Award winner over the past few years. While that happened back in 2009, it seems even further back since now he is approaching a milestone that is far, far bigger: 100,000 followers.
Here is the cake video from August 2009 that had his Twitter followers in stitches:
Back in February, he shared a tweet that confirmed that we may be seeing something special once again:
What should I do when I hit 100,000 followers? Taking suggestions. Nothing's too weird.

Another video? Possibly. The only thing that we are sure of is that it could be anything! With his follower count sitting in the 99,000 range, we are counting the days until we see six digits up there. Should be soon now….
UPDATE (5/18/11): Yesterday, Lee Unkrich passed the 100,000 follower mark and shared an “embarrassing video” from his past. In 1987, he was a contestant on the game show, Win Lose or Draw. Watch the episode below!
