New Ad for Las Vegas Plays Off Naked Prince Fiasco | Weird
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitor's Authority is using the uproar surrounding pictures of a naked prince in a new ad campaign.
The LVCVA launched a new tongue-in-cheek campaign in Friday's edition of USA Today. The ad plays off the recent pictures of Prince Harry taken at a suite at the Wynn Las Vegas during a game of strip billiards. The pictures show the naked, 27-year-old prince getting cozy with an unidentified woman.
The ad is part of the tourism authorities campaign about keeping quiet about the wild times during a trip to Las Vegas. The campaign suggests even royals should be allowed to enjoy adult freedom while in Las Vegas.
Tourists on the Strip like the idea of having fun without anyone knowing about it.
"I support the idea, but it does not always happen that way, especially if you are a celebrity or a prince," tourist Racheal Powell said.
"He is a real-life person. He is only our spare so he deserves some fun in his life," Linda Horton, a tourist from Canada, said.
The ad reads "Keep Calm and Carry on Harry" with #knowthecode, a reference to the famous Las Vegas slogan "What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas."
