Half a million is a lot of pencils!

Yesterday, Ron Moore and Joss Whedon, along with a large group of fans and writers, took part in the attempted delivery of more than 500,000 pencils )and a "Go Back to the Table" message) to NBC, Walt Disney, and Universal Studios. (Yes, attempted. The studios refused delivery, as expected. According to Pencils2MediaMoguls, refused pencils will be donated to non-profit children's charities.)

The important thing, though, is that the event got attention, and acted as visual proof of fans' support to the attending press. Impressive visual proof, at that--the still-boxed pencils reportedly formed a 20-foot long, five-foot high wall! And, of course, this was only the first delivery--show your support and keep those pencils coming! You can see more photos of the delivery here, or check out a great video below the cut.

Wow, that's a lot of pencils. And if you listen, at one point you can hear the assembled crowd chanting "Thank you, fans!" Awesome. [Video via Ramblings of a TV Whore]
