Credits roll for ‘Clerks II’

Smith pic turns to MySpace for new promo

In an unusual promo for Kevin Smith’s “Clerks II,” the first 10,000 people adding one of the movie’s pages to their friends list will get a credit on the Weinstein Co. film and DVD.

That’s right, all 10,000 names.

Tee time for adding the MySpace page — titled Mooby’s Presents: Clerks II — is 5 p.m. ET today.

According to TWC, the names will appear horizontally and begin scrolling after the credits. MGM will release the film on July 21.

Pic, directed by Smith, is a sequel to his 1994 Sundance hit “Clerks.” Follow-up again stars Smith as Silent Bob, Jason Mewes as Jay, Brian O’Halloran as Dante Hicks and Jeff Anderson as Randal Graves. Rosario Dawson is an addition to the cast.

“We cannot think of a better way to get Kevin’s longstanding fan baseexcited about this sequel,” TWC co-chair Harvey Weinstein said in a statement.
