As an ad chick by day, advertising usually fails to amuse me. But every once in a while, I see something that catches my eye and makes me take another look...
Still A Virgin? Now There's Help.
Take, for example, the below sign I spotted in the loop this weekend...
No, I'm talking about the grossly oversized parking sign, or the fact the detour sign is flipped upside down...but rather, the unassuming ad stating "Still A Virgin? We Can Help."
At first, I was a bit shocked. Were the pimps of the world were getting creative with their marketing efforts in what continues to be a tough economy? But then I learned that friends in San Francisco, Florida and New York had spotted similar advertisements all touting the same phone number. And there's no way that pimps would invest that much money in a nation-wide media blitz to prey upon the desperate virgins of the world.
So I did what any curious gal would do...
I called the number.
And no. I'm not a virgin.
(That ship sailed long ago...)
What I found on the other end of the line, was nothing short of hilarity. A maze of automated voicemails for virgins, non-virgins looking to help their virgin friends, even selections for those wanting their virginity back. It'll provide you with a few entertaining minutes of cheap thrills...
So, for a good time call: 888-743-4335.
(and learn just what this campaign is about after the jump...)
For those of you who are wondering, the phone number is part of a marketing campaign for Sony for their upcoming film, Virginity Hit, which will be released on Friday.
