|February 1, 2007 (San Jose, CR) - Despite initial criticism for being inelegant, bawdy and blonde, Daniel Craig proved a worthy 007 in blockbuster hit Casino Royal. But according to a survey conducted by VIPLoungeCasino.com (VIPloungecasino.com) and website The Real Bond (www.TheRealBond.com/), Brosnan is still the people’s favorite. |
Never before has the Ian Fleming character been anything but tall, dark, handsome, suave and sophisticated, and to mark Hollywood’s break from this tradition, TheRealBond.com has parodied a conflict between the Bonds through a series of videos in which Pierce Brosnan sabotages Daniel Craig at the Oscars, on a photo shoot, at the poker table, underwater, and in his Aston Martin.
VIPLoungeCasino.com, the online casino with the “double O” theme, commissioned the videos as a thank you to the players of their super-agent-themed online casino. The videos were an instant hit amongst the players at the site, and were soon published across the web on social network and entertainment sites including MySpace and YouTube, causing an internet-wide controversy.
One YouTube viewer commented, “Why do people who love Brozza hate Craig? It is not Craig's fault that Brozza is too old to be Bond. Having a man crush on Brozza is all right but this?...”
While VIPLoungeCasino.com applauds Craig’s excellent performance in what some regard as the most action-packed Bond film yet, its players have asked casino manager Christopher di Angelo to keep their classic “Double O” theme at the online casino until Craig proves himself in the upcoming 2008 Bond film, currently referred to as Bond 22.
“Our players seem to like Daniel Craig, but they don’t yet associate Craig with the James Bond character. Personally, Sean Connery is my version of Bond. The test for me is to ask yourself who you think of when someone ask for a martini ‘shaken, not stirred’,” according to di Angelo.

www.VIPLoungeCasino.com, a recent addition to Real Time Gaming portfolio, provides players with a unique concept and theme that integrates the legendary British secret agent and his passion for casinos and upscale lifestyle.
