Pirates Outselling Competition
Source: Digital Playground
by: Company Press Release

(VAN NUYS, CA) -- "Pirates", this years' #1 blockbuster title, co-produced by Digital Playground and Adam & Eve, is outselling the competition by at least 2 to 1 in every single avenue of distribution. Frank Koretsky, owner & founder of IVD, the largest volume distributor of adult product in the United States, says, "'Pirates' is exceptional at every level.

Digital Playground spared no expense in the making or marketing of this film. The sales tools they provide us with are the best we've ever had for any title in the 20 years we've done business. The packaging is so good, it compares to the best Hollywood DVDs I've ever seen and the production values throughout are remarkable. With this kind of support from Digital Playground, it's easy to see why 'Pirates', even at double the price, is outselling every other feature movie this year."

Adam & Eve, the biggest catalog, mail order enterprise in erotica, is blown away by the numbers 'Pirates' is doing. Bob Christian, their V.P. Of New Business raves, "Adam & Eve and Adam & Eve Pictures are ecstatic with the results of this endeavor. 'Pirates' is already the best selling title in the history of the Adam & Eve catalog... And we feel sure this is only the beginning of an incredible alliance between Digital Playground and Adam & Eve. Amazing, too, is the response we've gotten from pairing two exclusive contract stars - Carmen Luvana and Jesse Jane - for this blockbuster affair." GVA, another leading distributor of adult entertainment agrees. Their buyer, Don Endy states, "'Pirates' is going gang busters! We have surpassed initial sales expectations and reorders are already rolling in. It's going to a swashbuckling record setter for us."

'Pirates' is doing record numbers on the web as well...

Digital Playground President, Samantha Lewis is excited by the early success of the movie. She says, "my partner Joone's productions always sell outstanding numbers but 'Pirates' is beyond anything I've seen. The sales have been staggering, well exceeding our projections. Our street date was only a week ago, we're already into our third run - and that's domestic sales only!"

Following the premiere of "Pirates" at the Egyptian theater, contract stars Jesse Jane and Carmen Luvana hit the road for a two-month promotional tour. They kicked off the tour at Hustler Hollywood and Hustler Hollywood - San Diego, where they autographed full-size movie posters to hundreds of fans for hours, well beyond their scheduled signing time. Jimmy Flynt II, Hustler's Vice President of Marketing says, "The overwhelming success of the 'Pirates' events at Hustler Hollywood San Diego and Los Angeles are proof that our customers want high quality productions. 'Pirates' is the future of adult entertainment." Today, over a week since the signing, Hustler Hollywood store manager, Chris Thornberry says, "Sales figures for the 'Pirates' DVD have been steady all week. We receive numerous phone calls per day asking us if we have the title in stock. Yesterday a customer called and had us hold 4 copies for him (he later came in and purchased them). I see 'Pirates' continuing to be a hot seller for the rest of the year and years to come."

Following the local signings, Jesse & Carmen hit Fascinations in Tempe, Arizona. After appearances on 3 local radio stations, the beautiful store was packed and David Gilbert, Director of Marketing was thrilled. He says, "We were extremely pleased with the turnout for our 'Pirates' DVD release signing. Overall the event was fantastic and the turnout was beyond expectations. The stores sales exceeded our goals and we sold more 'Pirates' DVDs in one night than any other signing we have had. Jesse Jane and Carmen Luvana lit up the stores and engaged the crowds to keep things rolling all night. We had a huge line all night and even had to extend the signing hours to accommodate the crowds of fans that wanted their DVD signed by these stars. This was simply a great event! And we would like to thank everyone who participated." Their Colorado appearance was equally grand. Tim Shanks, Director of Operations raves, "It was amazing how much traffic this signing event generated. According to our store manager, who has been with us for 8 years, it was, by far the biggest turnout ever. We sold more videos times 10 than any other in a single day. Jesse and Carmen were the most fun and the most personable stars I've ever had the privilege of working with. They really have a "star" quality about them and are very charismatic. The employees and guests all had the same thing to say." in the following weeks, Jesse and Carmen will visit New York, Florida, Washington, Chicago, Alaska, Philadelphia and Texas to name a few. Check JesseJane.com or ClubCarmen.com for updated appearance schedules.

"Pirates" has dominated the charts since it began shipping and the corresponding reviews have been glowing. DVD Talk lists "Pirates" in their number one spot and Ian Jane writes, "Impressive production values, splendid costumes, and surprisingly good performances from a handful of the x-rated entertainment industry's biggest stars makes 'Pirates' one of the most accessible adult features I've ever seen." the folks at Adult DVD Reviews also show "Pirates" in the number one spot; Dr. Jay gave it their "critics choice' award and calls it, "The most ambitious adult movie ever. A must see." ... Even Paul Fishbein, President of AVN, loved it, "I think 'Pirates' is one of the finest adult videos I've seen in ages. Its' extraordinary technical accomplishments do not diminish neither the sex nor the compelling story-line."
