Online Casino buys Elmo Doll
The online casino Golden Palace last week announced that they’d purchased the first TMX Elmo doll for $4200.
Elmo is a fictional character from the famous Sesame Street television show and currently hosts the last segment on Sesame Street, called "Elmo's World", which is aimed at toddlers.
This particular version of the doll is called a Tickle Me Elmo Extreme and was presented to the TV show The View to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary. The toy is autographed by Elmo muppeteer Kevin Clash and Mattel President Neil Friedman.
Golden Palace has been conducting these kinds of stunts for a while and has gained a reputation amongst players and industry watchers as the ‘wacky casino’ who know no limits when it comes to self promotion. Items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner's Kidney Stone have gained extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.
