PIMPROLL Expands Parody Niche To Single Celebs

Stewart Tongue
For many years the adult entertainment industry has tried to step over the bright line and find ways to infiltrate mainstream marketing audiences. Some have taken the 'any press is good press' approach while others have carefully cultivated a kinder and friendlier persona that mainstream brands feel is more palatable.

Notable entertainers like Ron Jeremy have appeared on reality television shows, book tours and become a recurring part of the mainstream zeitgeist for more than a decade or two - but now the cross-over between mainstream and adult marketing is finally becoming commonplace. Stars like Sasha Gray have done stints on Entourage and major Hollywood film releases, Charlie Sheen has used his fame (or infamy) to make household names out of several other starlets including Bree Olson and the steady stream of parody DVD titles has revamped vintage media from TV and Theaters to create hardcore concepts from familiar characters established by well known studios.

With porn parodies already covering pretty much every television series or movie title worth mentioning, a new site from PIMPROLL is helping some adult affiliates cash in on the 'star making' marketing machine used by mainstream to pump out pop stars and promote them extensively. For years, it can be argued, that the music industry has been dominated by American Idol winners and celebrity icons whose notoriety comes more from the media outlets that produce them than from their own performance abilities.

Perhaps no company is foreshadowing the future of what is to come better than PIMPROLL with their recent faux-celebrity reality site MileyXXX starring Brynn Tyler as a fantasy version of Miley Cyrus. The site does a brilliant job of accurately stating it is a parody while portraying the star in an immersive way - allowing fans to live out their wildest celebrity porn dreams without any obstacles to the believability of what they are watching.

Going beyond the reach of a xxx movie made to look like the Dukes of Hazzard or Avatar, PIMPROLL is tapping into something much more real for their fans. The connection that many feel to a particular star or celebrity icon. It's a very interesting approach and will likely spawn imitators quickly. Why parody Charlies Angels when what many fans really want is a 'reality porn' site that lets them explore the possibilities of living a rockstar lifestyle with Cameron Diaz as their guide (whether it's really Cameron Diaz or another close facsimile).

"The move to add MileyXXX.com to the offerings of Porn.com has been very successful already and is showing us that there is a lot of opportunity to blur the line between mainstream entertainment and adult content" said David K. of PIMPROLL. "For us the most important thing is finding the right talent, the best scripts and the highest production values. Our fans expect only the best from Porn.com and we believe the merger with mainstream only works well when the content is believable and truly immersive."

It seems we may not be too far off from seeing sites that let fans fantasize about their favorite celebs in a whole new way. Yes, the parodies will be obviously fake to anyone who looks at them critically - but a 'fake Anna Kournikova played by Pornstar X' with an immersive diary, behind the scenes pics from the road and fan interaction is a lot sexier than no Anna Kournikova.
