Woman Taunted in Promotion for Bret Easton Ellis' New Book
Eighties icon of sorts Bret Easton Ellis is out with a new book and digital creative agency Ralph has put together a promotional campaign. Last week, a video trailer was released showing a shaky video casting session with a "morally dubious" outcome. Viewers were directed to take up the cause against Hollywood exploitation and sent to a holding page.
Following that release, Bret Easton Ellis fans are now directed to The Devil in You where they can step into the shoes of Clay, a Hollywood producer, as he runs a seedy casting session somewhere in LA. You direct the actress; you tell her what to do. You can encourage her, fill her with booze and drugs, make her dance for you or take things to a whole new level. Although the levels are quite tame. There's no nudity, no sex, no elicit behavior. Which is too bad because, well, we thought there'd be more from a dude like Ellis.
