CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Adult novelty manufacturer, Topco Sales took to the road with the Backstage Artist Lounge last Saturday to bring its Penthouse Pet Collection to the Epicenter Festival. The Sept. 24 event featured headliners Limp Bizkit, Staind, Five Finger Death Punch (5FDP) and Papa Roach along with nearly one dozen other bands.
"We were definitely the hottest thing in the lounge," said Erica Heathman, Marketing Communications Manager for Topco Sales. "Between our video montage of Pets being molded and the presence of Penthouse Pets Taylor Vixen and Jaime Lynn, Topco owned the place!"
Throughout the day, musicians, crew and roadies from nearly every band in the lineup, visited the Topco Sales booth to meet Taylor Vixen and Jamie Lynn, Penthouse Pets of the Year 2010 and 2006, respectively. Many of the guys (and a few gals) left with their very own Penthouse Pet CyberSkin toys. The most popular pieces of the day were of course Taylor and Jamie but a few notables like Jeremy Spencer and Jason Hook from 5FDP nabbed Alexis Winston replicas while lead singer Ivan Moody took home Veronica Ricci. Crossfade drummer Mark Castillo and Joe from the P.O.D. crew had fun posing with Justine Joli's feet and Buckcherry guitarist Stevie D. grabbed an official Penthouse guitar strap to use on stage at Epicenter.
"Just as we suspected, the band members loved meeting the Penthouse Pets and checking out the toys molded directly from their lady parts," added Amanda Byrd, Penthouse director of licensing. "Life on the road can get lonely and now they know where to find some custom lovin'!"
