LAS VEGAS -- March 11, 2008 -, the largest city site in the world and winner of multiple national awards for its advertising campaigns, is set to launch new creative and a series of three 30-second spots for a $20 million national cable television ad campaign, "The Vegas Experts."

In "The Vegas Experts," actors playing employees take center stage as they go about a regular day on the job, needing to know the ins and outs of everything in the city for Vegas visitors. They take their jobs very seriously even though they're in the middle of the hottest parties, backstage at the best shows and working with celebrities, clubs, hotels and more -- collecting information for the customer who depends on them.

What looks like play to outsiders is shown as the serious business that it is to make every visitor's experience in the city what they want it to be. Celebrities featured in the spots include George Maloof, Carrot Top, Nathan Burton, The Blue Man Group and Louie Anderson, along with performers from Vegas shows Le Rêve, Jubilee, Chippendale's, Fantasy, Thunder from Down Under, X Burlesque and Gregory Popovich's Comedy Pet Theater who interact with employees and play a role in making the hard-working employee the hero for the city's tourists.

In "Hotels," Allyn Rachel plays a employee tasked with the job of touring hotels. "Working for is no party," she sighs, stepping into a sexy, crazy party in the Hugh Hefner Suite at the Palms filled with Playboy bunnies, showgirls, performing animals and celebrity cameos. "It's a thankless job, but I do it for you, so you know exactly where to stay."

The two additional spots are "Backstage," starring Barak Hardley as a employee in the middle of the show Le Rêve at the Wynn Las Vegas and "Air-Hotel Package" set and shot at the nightclub Pure at Caesars Palace, starring Ginger Gonzaga.

"'The Vegas Experts' was a logical step following our previous campaigns," said Howard Lefkowitz, president of "This time we wanted to show just what it is we do for you -- the lengths goes to for customers so that their trip to Vegas is the best it can be. Our initial Mr. V campaign showed the strings we pull for customers. We then set out to popularize the now-iconic red arrow and to show it transporting people from their everyday lives to a Vegas fantasy scene. Now we're reinforcing our local expertise, contacts and ability to create an experience that only the true Vegas Experts can deliver."

Prior campaigns were honored with a 2006 TIA Odyssey Award for Best Domestic Advertising Campaign and multiple HSMAI Adrian Awards. called on Vegas-based Stella Productions to write and produce the new TV campaign, directed by Bob Rice of Wild Plum and led by Executive Creative Director Philip Nobert and Creative Director Doug Hentges.

"It isn't everyday you get to do all the things you set out to do with a commercial," said Nobert. Stella Owner and Executive Producer Ed Winfield added, "It speaks highly of the collaborative nature of our relationship with It was tremendous!"
