    Paris Porn goes Mobile!

    I just saw an ad on TV. You know the type of ad I mean, SMS to this number and we will send you a video of a stripper or some lesbian pr0n or something for your mobile phone.

    This one was a little different. It was advertising the Paris Hilton home video sent straight to your mobile phone.

    If you'll remember this video is now liscenced to be sold, so it isn't a hoax, and Paris gets the profits.

    How exactly does one apply the term "attention whore" to this situation?

    Man, isn't there anyone that knows how to find stuff on the internet? I mean, there are enough people paying money to have their horoscope sent to their phone to keep the commercials on. Like it isn't in every newspaper, and thousands of websites for free.

    So that's what they're calling that video now? Not cinemascope but horrorscope, interesting. And here I was thinking it was Parisvision...

    Yes, how the porn industry continues to make money is a constant source of astonishment to me.

    In Paris Hilton's case: whorescope.

    No, it amazes me to.

    How many guys in here look at porn?
    How many of you pay to do so?

    Everyone here eithers downloads it through whatever means or goes to pornotube for it.

    It is mystifying how the porn industry makes it's money...but it's a billion dollar industry folks. They're doing something right, and people are willing to pay for it.

    Just not you or I. We get it free, one way or another. The interesting thing is, you don't see the porn industry doing newspaper ad-worthy huge crackdowns on every teenage boy who downloaded Carmen Luvana's latest skin flick from his favorite Peer to peer app. If anything it's just more advertising for the industry.

    The RIAA should take note.

    I can only attribute it to an amazing level of ignorance on the part of their customers. Complete inability to use Google for one thing.

    I can't say with absolute certainty, but I'd be willing to wager she does. I'd lay odds on it as well.

    ~edit~ For Christ's sake man, how do you get those posts in just before people all the time like that?!

    i am constantly subjected to ads which amaze me. This one for a sound that gets sent to your mobile goes "Get the coolest sounds on your mobile. SMS the name of the sound to XXXX" then it plays a sample of the sound, for example a 3 second "terrifying" chainsaw. How much for each sound? $4.50! What the heaven is going on here? n00bs are actually paying for this!

    Oh, that's nothing. Read the fine print... where it says it's a subscription service and you get 3 sounds per week for $24.95.

    I seriously think this sort of thing is child... (*refers to forgotten word thread*) erm... manipulation isn't the right word, but it's close. All of those ads are aimed at kids. "Get the coolest sounds on your mobile now!" "Get the ringtone that adults can't hear" "be cool and get this cool ringtone/wallpaper, it's soooo cool!" If I had kids and caught them subscribing to something like this that costs $100 per month I'd confiscate the phone. Even porn isn't worth it, I could buy two or three DVDs for the same price as this Paris junk.
