Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2008
Jetset Studios, one of the entertainment industry's leading online marketing agencies, has recently completed a viral campaign for the 20th Century Fox feature comedy "Meet the Spartans," starring Carmen Electra. The announcement was jointly made today by Jetset Studios co-founders Russell Scott and Patrick Young.
Conceived and developed by Young, the website, Carmen Has A Crush On You, allows visitors to enter their name, photograph and phone number of either themselves (or an unsuspecting friend) to create a customized video interview with Electra in which she talks about her new "boyfriend," reveals a tattoo of his "name" on her body and shows off his "picture" - all digitally inserted into the content. After the interview, Electra uses her mobile phone to call her "boyfriend." A few seconds later, the number entered into the site rings with a personalized message from Carmen promoting the January 25 premiere of "Meet the Spartans."
Regarding the project, Young stated, "This project is a simple, yet truly interactive site that creates an emotional connection between the film, Carmen Electra and the moviegoer. We decided to capitalize on Carmen's stunning allure and comedic talents to deliver a site that entertains, reflects the 'Meet the Spartans' brand and can easily reach the film's target audience."
The movie, set for release on January 25, 2008, is written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. The cast in the spoof movie also includes Sean Maguire (Leonidas), Diedrich Bader (Traitoro), Kevin Sorbo (Captain), Ken Davitian (Xerxes) and Method Man (Persian Emissary). The supporting cast includes Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Abdul and Britney Spears impersonators.
