Vivid Announces <i>Janine Loves Jenna</i> Retailer Contest

Vivid Entertainment Group has announced a retailer contest for the upcoming release of Janine Loves Jenna in which the winner will receive an in-store visit from Jenna Jameson.

Janine Loves Jenna, the long-awaited video starring AVN Hall of Fame performers Jameson and Janine Lindemulder, is set to ship during the third week of March. The contest is designed to reward the retailer that orders the highest number of units – which would be non-returnable – by the time the movie ships. The winning retailer will get a free personal appearance in their store by Jameson.

Howard Levine, national sales manager for Vivid, told AVN that such an appearance by Jameson is valued at about $25,000.

"She does not really sign at stores any more," Levine noted. "It will be completely an all-expense paid signing."

Jameson's appearance will be within four weeks of the ship date of the movie. Her last store appearance, at the grand opening of Adult Mart in Cleveland, prompted fans to line up five hours ahead of her scheduled arrival time in 10-degree weather.

Levine said the video, shot in HD and directed by Justin Sterling, cost nearly $300,000 to make.
