(SCOTTSDALE, AZ) -- Expert players of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater(r) 4 video game (which has a "T" for Teen rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board) developed by Neversoft and published by Activision Publishing, Inc. have a shot at a very special reward for their skill - a chance to skate with a character modeled after the top adult star, Jenna Jameson.
The sexy Jameson, recognized as the greatest female adult star of all time, is the model for the character Daisy in the game that lets players take on the role of legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk and other top athletes, as they skate through enormous free-roaming levels, choose from progressively harder goals and build their skills to perform difficult skateboarding stunts.
"We wanted one of the secret characters in the game to be a hot sexy female skater," said Joel Jewett, president of Neversoft. "We asked our staff, 'Who do you think of when you think of hot and sexy?' and the overwhelming response was Jenna."
Exclusive photos and videos of Jameson shot by Neversoft became the models for specific poses that bring the Daisy character to life in the game. "Jenna put her signature stamp on the character by choosing her sexy skater outfit of cut-offs and a tank top, and she also provided us with voiceover because the character speaks to the player during the game," said Mr. Jewett. "When Daisy falls, you hear Jenna shout, and if you choose to skate as Daisy that would be Jenna speaking for you."
"Working with Jenna was great," he added. "She's a smart girl with a great sense of humor and she really helped us make a great character for the game."
