    Fuck them, they're true scambags. They had some scam going for a while where they would take credit card numbers and automatically enroll people into a "club membership", then start billing for products never ordered. Eventually they had to settle a class action lawsuit over the practice.

    Somehow seems appropriate that they were the chief Stern advertiser on the E! show.

    Years ago my buddy ordered one of those off of the TV and had no idea that they continued to send a new one every month (he's the classic married guy who never gets laid and watches porn any chance he gets). His wife found out and he pulled the classic move that I was the one ordering them and having them sent to his house because I didn't want my girlfriend to find out, he even put my name on his mailing address. I had no idea this was happening. I went by his house to pick him up and his wife hands me 3 Girls Gone Wild DVD's and says "really, 18 year old girls? And you're how old? I'll bet (insert my girlfriends name) would be curious to know that you're into jacking off to high school girls." I was taken aback but accepted the smut, sensing something was amiss. My buddy had the nerve to ask for them back once we left the house after I took a bullet for him. It was like a scene out of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    [h=1]‘Girls Gone Wild’ Files Bankruptcy to Fight Vegas Debt[/h] By Steven Church and Sophia Pearson - Feb 28, 2013
    The company behind the “Girls Gone Wild” videos filed for bankruptcy to protect itself from a $10.3 million debt claimed by Steve Wynn’s Wynn Las Vegas LLC and a $5.8 million award won by a woman who says the company used naked images of her without permission.
    Last year, Wynn and his company won a slander lawsuit against Joe Francis, founder of the “Girls Gone Wild” franchise, which features college-age women in reality TV-style shows focused on drinking, stripping and sex.
    “The court finds that Francis made a knowing and intentional false and defamatory statement,” a Nevada judge ruled in April in awarding $7.5 million to Wynn and Wynn Las Vegas. Francis lied when he claimed he had proof that Wynn tricked high-end gamblers, the judge ruled.
    GGW Brands LLC said it had about $16.3 million in debt and less than $50,000 in assets. Affiliates GGW Magazine, LLC and GGW Events LLC also sought Chapter 11 protection yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Los Angeles.
    The bankruptcy case doesn’t mention Francis or the lawsuit. It was signed by a company manager, Chris Dale, and listed its biggest debt as $10.3 million to Wynn Las Vegas. The company said it disputes the validity of that debt and a $5.8 million claim by Tamara Favazza.
    GGW Brands filed for bankruptcy “to restructure its frivolous and burdensome legal affairs,” Francis’s executive assistant, Heather Brook, said in an e-mailed statement. She said Francis hasn’t owned the company for two years.
    [h=2]Like GM[/h] “This Chapter 11 filing will not affect any of Girls Gone Wild’s domestic or international operations,” according to the statement. “Just like American Airlines and General Motors, it will be business as usual for Girls Gone Wild.”
    Francis has lost a series of multimillion-dollar court cases, including one in which the Nevada Supreme Court ruled he owed $2 million in gambling debt to Wynn. Francis had sought a discount on the debt and promised to pay after he was released from jail in an unrelated case, according to court records.
    Favazza sued Francis in 2008, claiming someone exposed her breasts while filming in a bar in St. Louis for the “Girls Gone Wild Sorority Orgy” DVD series, according to court documents.
    Favazza, a St. Louis resident, won a $5.8 million judgment and then sued Francis, GGW Brands and Mantra Films last year in federal court in Missouri to collect.
    GGW Brands called Favazza’s claim a “trade debt” in its Chapter 11 petition. In bankruptcy, trade debts are owed to suppliers, vendors and other service providers.
    [h=2]Name Changes[/h] Favazza claimed in her federal suit that Francis evaded creditors by changing the names of his businesses, transferring assets and closing accounts.
    Francis owns assets that could be used to satisfy the judgment, including a 1971 Gulfstream jet worth at least $2 million, a $10 million mansion in Bel Air, California, and a $30 million beachfront estate in Punta Mita, Mexico, according to the complaint. GGW trademarks for videos, websites and clothing and apparel total more than $20 million, Favazza said.
    The case is In re GGW Brands, LLC 13-15130, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California (Los Angeles)

    I sure remember one of their late night commercials that had this small blond with huge cans, and that damned thing always cut at the moment she lifted that tank top to reveal that glory. :banghead:

    That alone almost drove me to want to track down that disc, but after a few minutes, I would regain my sanity. :coffee:

    Good.

    While I'm all for hot college chicks getting naked and putting on a show, I found the owner so fucking vile that I never gave his company a cent.

    Glad to see he's bankrupt, hopefully this means he no longer has the $$$ to buy himself out of trouble the next time, and we all know there will be a next time for this douche.

    At first, it was all about filming chicks in New Orleans and Daytona showing their tits out in public.

    But then they introduced the bus.

    And like a 45-minute video would be like 2 girls showing their bodies.

    And some of the girls would already be porn stars.

    Such a cunty move on the part of your buddy's wife. She needs to know her hubs was getting those vids because she's not putting out or is unattractive, etc, but feels ENTITLED to monopolize her husband. Broads like that deserve to be cheated on.

    Oh, I agree 100%. I hated that cunt and how she treated my spineless, scared-of-his-wife best friend (which he allowed). She was all false advertising, she'd suck him off all the time, let him put it in her ass and she kept herself in great shape. A year into his marriage all of that stopped and she started putting on weight and wouldn't let my friend see any of his "stoner buddies". This poor fucker was so frustrated with his life that he'd rush over to my house on his lunch break and spend 30 minutes in my bathroom "shitting" (i.e. jacking off to the stack of porn mags under the sink)...which I found weird and kind of sad. Inevitably, he ended up cheating on her and although she cleaned his ass out financially, he's in a much better place.

    That best part of the Piranha re-make was Joe Francis getting his dick bitten off in effigy.
