Marketing & Promotions Sponsorship Opportunities

"PORN STAR: The Legend of Ron Jeremy" is the new, critically acclaimed feature film that explores the life of the world’s most famous adult film star: Ron Jeremy. However, this film is not about porn, but about one of the most recognizable faces in America today, Ron Jeremy. Ron Jeremy is a true legend to many, especially the 18-35 year old male demographic.

Presently, Ron Jeremy has been travelling the nation to promote this unique film. He will continue to travel with the film from state to state, with a primary focus of major college markets.

Although Porn Star is enjoyed by a broad movie-going audience, the primary audience is 18-35 year old males. Our research exit polls prove the male audience is the primary group watching this movie (see Exit Poll data enclosed). As Porn Star and Ron Jeremy roll out nationwide to the major college marketing in 2002, an unlimited potential exists for sponsors to reach this elusive male demographic.


Venue Banner Space
In addition to his prolific film career, Ron’s principle career is Master Ceremonies (MC) at events, major rock band concert introductions and stand-up comedy. In each of the 50+ markets, Ron is booked in a comedy club/bar/nightclub venue with an average capacity of 500 persons. Most of these venues are 21+ and attract 21-35-year old patrons. In major markets, Ron typically attracts crowds in excess of 2,000 people for his stand-up act (multiple shows). Banner and other signage space is available in each of the venues that are included in this tour.

Host Apparel Branding
Ron Jeremy may be adorned with apparel with your logo and or promotional message during the 50+ market tour.

Personal Appearances
A select few sponsors will have the opportunity to host Ron Jeremy at their own event of choice during the year to promote their own product, MC a company event, host an autograph session, or just to generate publicity. Autograph Sessions


Photos Viewed and Ordered:
At the main event in the 50+ markets, a professional event photographer will be present to take party pictures of attendees. At an event with 500 attendees, event photographers typically shoot 150 frames. The photographer will hand each person photographed a card with the website where the photos can be viewed and purchased. Traditionally, this service generates significant web traffic and many photo orders, each of which is for an average of 3 photos. When the photos are printed and mailed to those who place orders, a 1" x 1" logo is digitally embossed on the photo. In order to complete the request for the photos, recipients must complete a brief survey with your questions (including email, address and demographic data capture). Most people display their photos or show them to others. The brand identity included on the photo receives the benefit of being associates with the fun time had by all at the event.

50 events x 150 frames x 20 viewers per frame = 150,000 viewers

Pre-Paid Photo Orders:
A sponsor may pre-purchase photos from the 50+ events to be given away by Ron Jeremy during his acts. Ron announces to the attendees that your brand is buying 25 people their first 2 pictures each from the event.

The recipient logs on to the website, chooses the photos and enters the code in lieu of payment. The photos that arrive are embossed with your 1" x 1" logo along with a pre-preprinted 3"x7" 70# flyer insert (client supplied).
