UPDATE: If you vote "No" on the poll, please explain your reasoning here. Post Anonymously if you wish. I'm not looking for an argument, but I am curious to know your reasons to pass on this media tactic. I think it is a good idea: Eye Candy will get attention, and a politically incorrect offense is almost as good as a punch in the nose. But maybe you see something that I am overlooking or miscalculating. K
We had her in the studio a while ago for a fashion-related shoot. At the end we had her play with a few of the toys laying around the Go Bag project.
Here is a concept I have been considering: A very shapely and attractive lass in III-appropriate clothing & gear doing a very inappropriate III-related thing (it won't be Lauren, it won't be sexual, it will be something very politically incorrect that is certain to push the limits of 1A among our current Enemies of Liberty). Our radio ads are reaching for allies. This poster would be designed to offend our enemies. That can be a very effective media strike, but we've got to be ready for blowback.
It will be something in-your-face-enough that the Political Class may lose their collective mind (hey, I'm punny!), and might even condemn us in national media.
All that, and of course, sexy/saucy without being trashy/raunchy.
Would you support such a project and purchase a $10-$13 poster to hang over your reloading bench or in your man cave?
Let me know whether or not you'd purchase, doing such things properly is not cheap, there will be about $1,500 involved before I pay the photographer - and pro photogs are not cheap. Of course, I'd also release it free digitally so you can put it on your sites or wallpaper, but I've got to know there will be financial support as well. If we have the support, I'll finance it personally and dump the revenue into the 527.
I put a poll on the right.
Also: I ordered a few extra III Flags - have you ordered yours yet? (They are scheduled to be in my shop next week from the flag company, they'll ship out the same day I get them in) Order at IIIGear.com, here. I ordered 15 extra, and I doubt if I'll order more. (I can't order flags a few at a time)
