THE NAKED TRUTH ON FINANCIAL NEWS
An Australian company is jazzing up its financial outlook by offering
online daily financial market updates read by naked women. Market Wrap
Unwrapped, which launched two weeks ago, features two young women who
undress each other as they spout the latest market statistics. "You can get
all the market news. Takeovers, mergers and bums," they say in unison as
they playfully slap each other's derrières. "There is no market advice,"
says the company's managing director. "It verges on the stockmarket/porn
industry. But it is very tame, only R-rated. The girls give the report and
take their clothes off, down to nothing as they go on." For the cost of
US$9.95 a month, members can get not only the market reports, but also have
the opportunity to participate in lingerie voting and an online offer to
meet the girls. (Reuters 20 Nov 2001)
