20060227 - Golden Palace infiltrates Winter Olympics Closing Ceremonies - Courtesy Unknown (submitted via web)

It was strange and amusing when online casino, Golden Palace, started purchasing oddball artifacts — such as the Grilled Cheese with the image of the Virgin Mary, a Doritos chip in the shape of the Pope’s Hat and the so-called Holy Pierogi — to make a name for itself. The next round of advertising raised quite a few eyebrows: purchasing ad-space on peoples’ bodies and having people legally change their names to “goldenpalace.com.”

The excrement really hit the fan in April 2005 when they paid $15,100 to a Connecticut woman in exchange for her naming her baby, “goldenpalace.com.” In addition to proving that the mother was insanely cruel and idiotic, this kind of shock-value advertising also went to prove what a bunch of soulless bastards Richard Rowe and company really were.

Last year, they sponsored streaking and mayhem at public events, an embarrassment that even the Winter Olympics in Torino were not spared. Sponsored by Golden palace, an English streaker, Mark Roberts, interrupted the Bronze Medal curling competition on Friday the 24th. Even tonight, during the closing ceremonies, organizing committee chairman Valentino Castellani was interrupted by one of their punks who decided to grab a microphone. Mr. Castellani continued gracefully, ignoring him almost completely.

It’s very clear that Richard Rowe can’t run a respectable company, and their continued shock-value advertising keeps going unchecked. Their antics are not only disruptive, they’re illegal. Yet, they continue to be allowed to operate in this manner.

So what’s next for Dick & Co.? It’s obvious that they have absolutely no qualims about screwing up the lives of innocent children or down-on-thier luck mothers, or with sponsoring repeated public nudity and completely disrupting international events.

It wouldn’t surprise me one bit for them to start sending t-shirts to suicide bombers.

    One small step would be for the FCC to fine them for public nudity on television. The event holders should start suing the bejesus out of them for disrupting the events in the first place. Also see this interview from Richard Rowe. http://www.gamblingonlinemagazine.com/article-detail.php?articleID=94 What a world class jerk.

    Golden Palace’s most egregious excercise in bad taste was, thankfully, thwarted before it could come to full fruition. As the world media was awaiting the first public appearance of Pope Benedict on the balconey at St. Peter’s square the cameras panned across the awaiting crowd. A very large banner started to unfurl. While it was never fully displayed enough of the banner was visible to see it was another Golden Palace stunt. Fortunately, either the crowd or the authorities prevented the banner from full deployment. When the cameras panned back over that section of the crowd the banner was no longer visible. The price we pay for a free society is putting up with insufferable dicks such as Golden Palace.
