Chester lap dancing club's "cheeky" adverts plan

By James Shepherd on Nov 24, 08 10:03 AM in

A CHESTER lap dancing club has come with "a cheeky" idea for how struggling companies can defy the credit crunch.

Dan Phillips, booking agent for the Platinum Lounge in Bridge Street, says businesses can now get themselves noticed and increase their bottom-line...by advertising on the girls' bare behinds.

Dan said the commercials were similar - if a little more racy - to those on Premiership football shirts or Formula 1 drivers' racing suits.

He said: "I thought of it more as a cheeky bit of fun until we realised the potential that it was an interesting and unusual way for people to get their businesses noticed.

"Local firms can sponsor as many of the girls as they wish and we hope the novelty of the scheme will ensure their message will stick in the minds of those people visiting the club.

"We have a very diverse selection of customers from all walks of life and are pretty sure they will have never seen anything like this before."

The dancers will have the 15cm by 10m adverts applied to their bottoms using a stencil and body paints.

"I had to do a lot of research with a tape measure to come up with the optimum size for the adverts!" added Dan.

Corporate sponsors will be offered a special deal for their clients to visit the club and Dan reckons "it could just help clinch that important contract".

Platinum lap dancer Emma-Louise, who has had a stencil applied to her bottom as part of the research stage, said; "I think it's a nice fun idea and a bit quirky which is exactly the kind of thing that sets the Platinum Lounge apart from many other venues of this type.

"I always like to help out, and anything which helps promote anybody's business must be a good thing, especially during these 'credit crunch' times."

Fifteen centimeters by 10 meters? That's a hefty dancer!

Chester's a fairly desperate place, isn't it? They need all the help they can get.

Empty, sad town.

That is a "pop-up" ad I wouldn't want blocked.

I for one would not appreciate paying a cover charge and having a minimum drink requirement just to look at somebody's business advertisements.

They should try to strike a partnership deal with AdSense. We could have live feeds at gpr0n.youtube.com :-)

Will these ads appear on Google Maps? Just how far in would I be able to zoom in?

Only strippers can save us from the credit crunch now

It was a bad idea to read the comments on Fark. Well, in work anyway... lots of arses.

A rugby league club sold ad space on it's female physio's bum a few years back, so this isn't that original an idea. The ads were on her tracksuit bottoms, mind.
It doesn't say much for the quality of their strippers that they expect the punters to be reading the ads.
