Casino Heist: SLS Rips Off Cosmopolitan's 'Seduction'

By now, you've definitely seen Cosmopolitan's lobby pillar video show "Seduction" - wherein naked bodies writhe behind frosted glass.

Well, the smarty pants rip off artists at SLS Las Vegas have ripped of the idea as part of their grand opening promotions.

To the left - SLS marquee. To the right - Seduction at Cosmopolitan.

Lame.

Thanks to SenorAnthony for the tweet tip!

Why are three letters in italics? I could understand the "R" and the "E" to be a sly nod to a grand RE-opening, but why the "N"?

Also, SLS missed a chance to open on the 21st or at 7:11 p.m. or some other reference to fabled gambling numbers.

Surprisingly August 23rd is on a Saturday! Most casino openings I remember were done mid-week. Actually, it's pretty clever of'em since they're guaranteed to get a HUGE turnout from everyone in town including tourists staying at the other hotels who'll show up out of curiosity.

Well. R-E-N are the first three letters of the word renovation.....

At least they didn't run an ad featuring the SLS towering over Cosmo and the Bellagio fountains....

And they both ripped off human centipede. http://www.impawards.com/2010/human_centipede_xlg.html

I think they would rather see this as a homage. Opening on a Saturday seems unique though since most come to town on Friday

It's all a rip of Shadow Bar circa 2006. Maybe they are fans of Ren and Stimpy or maybe Kevin Bacon will be at the opening reprising his role from Footloose

My take on the Saturday opening, Fridays and Saturdays are the only chance in hell they have of keeping the property occupied. Sun-Thurs the place is going to be a graveyard.
