There’s nothing quite like a controversy over nothing to drum up publicity for a new sponsor. With that, we’re proud to bring you the Monster Energy Girls that were just introduced for the upcoming Daytona 500.
The “outrage” over their outfits started over the weekend. What’s controversial, you ask? Rather than wearing fire suits like last year’s Sprint girls, the Monster girls are wearing tight black pants and a black leathery/vinyl-y corset looking thing. Oh, and those things show cleavage. That’s it. No bikinis. No thongs. Yet, people still want to bitch. Some of the Tweetage looks like this:
- Need to rethink those uniforms for the Monster Energy Girls if they don't want naughty jokes.
- Monster drink I think this is too much. NASCAR IS A FAMILY SHOW!!!
- Those new Monster energy girls need a few more clothes on in pit lane!
- Those Monster girls make me uncomfortable.
Of course, we wouldn’t be ones to think that some of the “controversy” might be manufactured just for publicity for Monster. That would just be cynical. Oh wait…we just game them publicity by doing the story. Dammit!
