Prince Harry's Naked Strip Poker Picture Inspires Las Vegas Ad
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, reacting to Prince Harry's recent Las Vegas strip poker scandal, has launched an ad campaign reinforcing its "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" code.
Of the campaign which, for all intents and purposes, defends Prince Harry's actions, LCVA spokeswoman Courtney Fitzgerald said, "Las Vegas is about adult freedom. It's important for friends to know what activities can be shared publicly and what activities are protected by the code."
The ad is said to read, in part, "For Shame! To those who traded in their pledge to their Las Vegas brethren, WE DEPLORE YOU. We are calling on you, the defenders of what happens in Vegas staying in its rightful place - in Vegas. We are asking for a shun on those exploiters of Prince Harry. We shall boycott partying with (whoever exploited Harry). No bottle service. No bikini clad girls."
The ad, a bold move, directs people to Las Vegas' Know the Code page on which people can sign a petition promising to uphold the code.
Of course for the most part, What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas died long ago with the advent of the camera phone. That said, we'd argue there's no harm in a young man (or anyone for that matter) engaging in a bit of adult fun from time to time without fear of repercussion. Of course we're not advocating rampant cheating and the like but some harmless, boundary-pushing antics should be able to be enjoyed without fear you'll end up on the cover of The Sun.
