Got $45? Then you can score your own personalized video from the one and only Tan Mom. She’s the latest Wack Packer to join Cameo, the video shout-out service where fans can pay money to get recorded messages back from their favorite celebrities. The Stern Show’s own High Pitch Erik has also been sending videos of himself to anyone who shells out $75. That’s the same price Debbie Gibson now charges for her Cameo videos following the custom Christmas greeting she sent to Jon Hein that became an instant hit.
Though Tan Mom is just getting started on the site, she’s already recorded quite a few memorable clips for fans, including one video message for a student named Jason who’s been having trouble with his homework.
“Her advice is to sing your homework,” Howard told Robin before playing the tape of Tan Mom giving some guidance to her young fan. And while she did suggest Jason sing a tune on his own as he studied, the Wack Packer also offered to tutor him herself over the phone anytime he needed help with his schoolwork.
“I, for free, if you want, I will give you my number before homework time and you can always call me,” Tan Mom said in the video. “You’re free to be Jason, the best special person in the world. Amen.”
To see if she really would lend a helping hand on his homework, the Stern Show called Tan Mom up and pretended to be Jason looking for answers to a few basic questions. Just as she said she would, Tan Mom tried her best to explain the Civil War, what lava was, and what the “H” in H20 stood for.
“What’s his name, Heinstein?” Tan Mom answered for that last question. “I can’t believe you’re plucking my brain right now.”

And when the Stern Show called the Wack Packer back as “Jason’s Mom,” angry about some of the answers she gave her son, Tan Mom talked some serious sense into her.
“Why don’t you just teach your own child instead of reaching out to other people?” Tan Mom yelled. “Quite frankly, I don’t have the fucking time for you. I’m going to the bank to buy a house!”
