Christine Dolce - Nearly 1,000,000 Legit MySpace Friends?

39 comments

Not really sure how she did it, but this girl has nearly 1,000,000 MySpace friends.

There is already a Wikipedia page on her too, but some of the editors seem a bit less than impressed:

MySpace whores are not "important people" to be included in the pedia. Delete this lame page.

But they ended up using her recent Playboy Playmate photo shoot as grounds for her being important. She was also recently featured in Business 2.0.

She quickly leveraged her media exposure to push pheromone cologne and clothing, and it looks like she may be on an upcoming MTV show.

Quite amazing how quickly her name spread. I wonder how many of her friends are spam bots. Does anyone think it was all her, or was there a PR person behind it all?

These are some of the things that indicate heavy public relations activity to me:

  • her profile name is forbidden
  • her associated website launched 6/6/06 at 6PM
  • the pheromone junk

The blonde hair girl from the OC is probably an easy meme to spread. What other ones would spread well on MySpace? Anyone else hit it big on MySpace?

Duh

She's a girl and a Playboy Playmate, so what's the question?

If you had hot knobs, and posed nude, you too could quickly have 1,000,000 'friends' also known as stalkers. Come on Aaron, put your buff picks up on SEOBOOK, post the links and we'll get you all the friends you need in No. California and NY.

Get real ;)

Her Playmate Status

Christine went to Playboy they aint ask her to be in it. And she whined cause they aint put her of the cover. She aint the Queen of Myspace Tila Tequila is Playboy personally asked her to join and she was on the cover this was all before Forbidden even thought of Playboy. I guess she aint have what it takes to be on the cover. She a Playmate but aint even on the cover they bumped her for a college girl. People that went to high school with her say that she was a stuck up cheerleader and dissed all the punk rockers and goths. Now she all rocker and goth wtf. Then they said her boobs weren't all that big and she had some work done. I seen her playboy spread her boobs look odd and lops sided i dunno..

You know, with my current

You know, with my current man breasts I am probably about a D cup. You might be on to something there.

Keep in mind that the Playmate stuff, etc. came AFTER she became popular on MySpace.

No she is that popular

No there all Legit, I remeber her from school, she always used to hang out in the by the water machine chatting with her 1,000,000 friends. Wouldn't give me the time of day, though I wasn't 'cool' enought for her.

Playmate

The Playmate may have come afterwards, but I'm sure she was already packing factory original equiment. Makes sense to me, probably about 1,000,000 married men out there looking for upgrade to Wife 2.0 that don't have COMMON SENSE 1.0 that should tell them she's out of their beer gut pimpled ass league.

She's cool

"I am DEEPER than you think.

If you would like to contradict me, I'm game.

I can most likely figure you out within 5 minutes of having a conversation with you. "

I wanna be her friend after reading that.

It's called

friend bating, not link bating ...

I guess I am just sorta

I guess I am just sorta disappointed in the state of humanity on this one. This display almost lends credibility to the idea of a special privledged ruling class.

Let them eat cheesecake...

>>This display almost lends credibility to the idea of a special privledged ruling class.

Careful, Aaron, that's a rather unAmerican weekend thought there. Although, in this case, you're possibly being diverted by the "bread and circuses".

I feel like I should either

I feel like I should either go to college or travel a bunch to get a bit of perspective and learn all those cool old school phrases.

Although I did include the word almost, which shows I didn't really believe in what I was typing ;)

thanks for keeping me from heading astray stever :)

Are you hungry enough

If you were smart young publicist or public relations person and you "got myspace" I could see getting 1,000,000 friends. Find some high school kids pay them for a few hours a day to get your profile on every "whore train" and "friendship drive" that comes by. Find some slightly geeky person to run a "myspace friend script". Add in some sexy suggestive photos of a beautiful young woman and I can't see how it could go wrong. I'd say whoever is the mastermind behind it clearly go more right than they got wrong. They may not have been a pro but they had some idea where they wee going, and definitely had a plan.

We all have our strengths dude and as you admit, yours is not in the social areas. Nothing wrong with this really, you might even retain your soul. :)

Wikipedia Entry

I could not resist and made the article at Wikipedia a bit nicer (using templates, formatted external references etc.).
I think I just did it to make somebody mad. My little revenge to make me mad (I am a Wikipedia Editor). :)

I could not find anything "real" for the statements made in the interview with her, only porn sites that used the opportunity to spam Google with cloaked pages and 302 redirects. So I did not added it to the article.

"She shot her very first magazine cover for Playboy Magazine in April 2006."
"She also has upcoming pictorials in Stuff, FHM and Rolling Stone."
"She is the Spokes-model for the Axe Deodorant "Gamekillers" MySpace campaign which will consist of her undertaking a major North American press tour."

I found some other videos though :)

and BTW. I believe it is sometimes good, if you got born as a hot chick. Life is much easier (for the most part).

Eat it

Fucking disusting. And yeah,

Fucking disusting.

And yeah, you're going to kiss her afterwards?

Enjoy!

Envy

C'mon guys. You are just jealous, admit it. I am probably as curious as you are to find out, how she managed what she did. The girl probably never heard about Search Engine Optimization, Buzz Marketing etc.

... and FYI, blondes are not my type ... :)
... and I realize that you did not get my Wikipedia sarcasm which is okay, I am not resentful.

not envy...

With me this is more of a marketer's curiosity issue than a point of envy. Also, long after her brand has dried out I will likely still be doing well on the WWW (although at that point I am not sure if my focus will still be search).

We all have our strengths dude and as you admit, yours is not in the social areas.

Yeah. I just don't get social networks like the WWW.

Off the web my social skills are pure shit, but I think I do quite well on the web.

The girl probably never heard about Search Engine Optimization, Buzz Marketing etc.

Probably true, which is why I think there is probably a public relations outfit behind it all. The Business 2.0 article said she had a manager.

Blah

The Business 2.0 article said she had a manager.

yep, met him at ... right, MySpace.com. His Name is Keith Ruby. I have never heard of him. Certainly did at some point some clever marketers and businesses over after they smelled money to make. I believe she must have something to get to that point and was not just picked my somebody to be a "Milli Vanilli" Face.

Ethnicity: Italian/Irish/Cherokee Indian

all well known sources of blond genes :)

Could be, not light blond though.. it's not looking like black hair... Irish, yep can be blond (Irish are not all red-heads), Italian (could also be blond, they don't have all dark/black hair) You don't have to be Scandinavian or German to be blond (and they are also not all blond anyway).

Who gives a damn.. She might be prettier if she would have black hair and show it (IMO).

Hot......

the fact that she has a denim company http://destroyeddenim.com/.. with an online store ... it looks like to me there is some one smart with a good plan is behind this. There are allot of hot girls that don't wear much - it takes more then just some pictures, this has the potentional to make a lot of money for a while and its ignorant to think other wise - News worthy

You're right, bentho.

You're right, bentho. Heavily airbrushed photos and heavily designed visuals don't just come out of nowhere -- regardless of how they were promoted afterwards. :)

Uh yea...

Sorry for butting in on the conversation, but noone mentioned that there is a credit on her profile for "design by: mikeB | bakermedia". Which leads to a Myspace profile for Bakermedia...and of course they have a HUGE banner stating "See what we did for the Queen of Myspace".

So yea, she had some help with branding. ;-)

There's more info here: bakermedia.com/forbidden/

I think MSP is a must-do for anyone promoting a celeb personality, as well as any retailer that caters to the hip/cute/xtreme market. There are a ton of reality stars on MSP, even from shows with older viewer demographics like Top Chef (do a search for chef or cooking to see how big this is). Surf and sports and is another big niche being heavily marketed on MSP.

You just gotta know how to work it.

* sigh *

Ya gotta know, Gurtie, that

Ya gotta know, Gurtie, that our water here in L.A. is so ::cough:: tampered with that we all go blond. (Just kidding. And no, I'm not blond.) Anyway, it's easy enough; there are those little bottles in the corner drug store.

Or, as Tyra Banks said on her Top Model reality show (I know; I'm bad; I do watch it), and I'm paraphrasing here: anyone who thinks beauty is easy or natural just doesn't know.

Oh dear. I hope I'm not

Oh dear. I hope I'm not bursting anyone's bubble.

I think the only bubble

is the bubble of exotic heritage :)

You never hear of people with a non-sexy-non-exotic ancestry do you? "yeah well actually my mom hails from Bognor and my dad's family are Welsh"

LOL! True, except for the

LOL! True, except for the ones that are born here in the L.A. suburbs. Or suburbs anywhere, I guess. Then there is that whole New York crew. I don't want to be an actress but it seems to me that the New York accent is rather like the U.K. accents -- tough to fake it.

You never hear of people

Well Catherine Zeta Jones is Welsh...and to top that, Brad Pitt is from Oklahoma (of English descent). There really isn't a more non-sexy place than Oklahoma. I should know since I spent ten years there. Yeehaw!

I've been in OK, too, though

I've been in OK, too, though I have to say it *was* pleasant (except for the constant tornado warnings and exhortations to climb into the bathtub with a mattress over you).

Wales sounds exotic to us who haven't been there. As does all of the U.K. And Val Kilmer is from the L.A. suburbs.

So, I guess we could say that it isn't where you're from; it's what you bring.

That said, these days, I consider that the hippest people are geeks. Or, as a programmer said one day under his breath, "They laughed at us in high school. Now we run everything."

I am so waiting for my turn

I am so waiting for my turn to be hip. Personally I am casting my wager on next lifetime ;)

I know what you mean,

I know what you mean, Aaron.

But if hip" means "in the know" ... ;)

Or are we talking about clothing? Clothing I can talk; I started out as a clothing designer eons ago. But clothing is something you buy; something that says (or doesn't) who you are. In addition to warmth and the need to clad the body, it's visuals. Kind of like ... visual design. :)

So where is Geek 2.0?

Clothing Design?!

... naeh.. I am rather "designing" a nice million dollar car and sell a few of those (and of course keep 1 or 2 for myself just as "spare" cars for the weekend) ....

I've had her. I faked every orgasm, HTH.

bwaahaha

This is starting to sound like a thread from one of the celebrity rag sites. lol

To add on to another...

article on 'link bait' I guess we'd need to add a #6 to this list:

1) News Hook
2) Contrary Hook
3) Attack Hook
4) Resource Hook
5) Humour Hook
6) "I'm just a sexy girl" Hook

egads.

I'm sure Wit will check it out for us.

But if her boobs look lopsided more likely they're real huh?

Still, nice you felt strongly enough about it you signed up to comment, normally only marketers and the people involved do that.

I read that post ann I see

I read that post ann I see the naive young man I was 15 years ago. lol..

MySpace talk from a 36 year

MySpace talk from a 36 year old marketer, that's my guess. I won't say why, so as not to help him improve his impersonations.
