Default New website...

Just got this in an email. Not sure if it's been put out yet or what. Seemed a little silly at first. Here's the link to the site.

Guess the "V" stands for Vinny (L4)....

You sure that's not an elaborate phishing site?

Oh dear god, that's cheesier than when they had the players as superheroes schtick in 2004. I especially like the sexual innuendo followed by a mention of family fun!

Sometimes you just have to remember that you're not the target audience for this stuff, and it must work for some people or they wouldn't do it.

Yech. That's pretty awful. Doesn't exactly help that it doesn't look legit, either (even though it is.)

Yeah it is goofy. I'll ask who came up with this one. I know my pal took part in the seenstamkos.com taking a lot of the pictures on there of seenstamkos pics of people, but not sure on this one. Just plain silly. The whole sexually side of what she says "hot, sweaty action...10 days worth..." and so on.
Then they have this on the site itself:

Same group of folks that came up with SeenStamkos came up with this steaming pile of crap. No one there is thrilled about it and many are embarrassed to wear the shirts theyve been given for the site out as they arent very flattering either.

One of the worst ideas I've seen.

Gotta love the ad in I believe the TBT today as well that had the ad strategically placed with the Asian massage parlors. Nice.
