4seasons85!: Wasn't there a guys gone wild a while back?


Hey Buttwipe, I told you that was because a bee flew up my shorts.

I wear the pasties because my nipples burn real easy.

The chaps?

/You can't judge me.

I've tried nearly all the fizzy energy drinks but refuse to drink Rockstar due to its affiliation with GGW.  Normally I like letting a nice pair disable all brain activity, but it all seems so wrong when the voice in my head screams "these chicks are probably drunk and don't know what the fark they just signed."  And merely by association, Rockstar energy drinks seem so icky.  Fark Joe Francis and the entire GGW series.

semiotix: ongbok: Francis isn't bankrupt, he is still rolling in millions. He is sacrificing the GGW brand to try to get out of the lawsuits against the company.

Yeah, he's always going to have money. When you've had the kind of monetary throughput he has, it finds ways to stick to you such that you're never really poor, no matter how douchey or careless. Symbiotic lawyers and accountants appear to create iron-clad annuities out of your pocket change, to guard against the inevitable financial catastrophe.

That said, Francis is one of the few slimy douchebags whose riches I don't begrudge, because they're obviously not doing anything to cut through his misery. I wouldn't give more than 2:1 odds that he's dead within the next three years.


Yeah, but I would have given those odds in the 90's, yet here he is still. He's too much of an asshole to die, more likely.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Two things:

1.) Every time I watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Commando and listen to the steel-drum score, I think: "The music must've been done by the Girls Gone Wild Commercial Orchestra."



A winner is you!Great call.

Polyhazard: GGW disgusts the fark out of me. Same with Hooters.

Get some real porn, you wanna-be date-rapists.


Wait, what's wrong with Hooters?  You don't like Wingsday?  This is suspicious behavior.

It's been reasonably argued that a drunk women can not give consent for sexual activities.  I think it is reasonable to extend that to a drunk person can not enter into a contract, verbal or written, and I'm sure the courts have already stated as such.  Thus, any contract signed by these drunk women are null and void.  I wish this piece o'shiat had been put out of business a long time ago.

Personally, I find the very idea of selling these videos to be the lowest form of sleaziness.

Maybe so. But I'm okay with that too. I mean, I don't actually wish death on him. And even if I did, I'd be content with the fact that he's pretty visibly in hell, even in his manic phases. Even Joaquin Phoenix couldn't fake that kind of crazy.

The corporation went belly up, not he, himself.
See my earlier posts. He's doing just fine.
"Corporate responsibility", is an oxymoron.

What's faulty about a business model that lasted 15 years and made millions upon millions of dollars?

I've always thought that GGW is overrated

Yup, he capitalized in a time where is wasn't as easy as typing "txt me noods" to see your peers topless. It worked until seasonal whores disease became a year round thing.

The corporation didn't even go belly up. He's just hiding assets to avoid paying a lawsuit. He's abusing the bankruptcy system the same way he abuses a bunch of drunk girls.

"Girls Gone Wild" is marketed by abusing the system. You buy one video, and the small print says you're agreeing to buy another video at an inflated price every month. They keep sending you videos and taking money out of your account every single month, and they make it almost impossible to stop the process.

This guy isn't a successful businessman, he's a successful con man.
