Playboy's Makeover is a Joke
Jeff Bercoviki of MediaLife reviews the August isses of Playboy, one of the first under the helm of new editor, James Kaminsky. He doesn't like it much:
"For the past couple decades, it has been like the middle-aged swinger at the party, sure that his leisure suit and mustache are the ticket to picking up chicks, unaware that he has become something of a joke.
Now imagine if someone were to take that middle-aged guy, slap a backwards baseball cap on his comb-over and swap his polyester trousers for baggy Levi�s.
That pretty well summarizes what James Kaminsky, Playboy�s new editorial director, has done since taking over last fall."
Ouch! I think I'll stick with Maxim.
