Wynn Launches Nightlife Onanism Internet Website Funnel Thing

posted by Chuckmonster on Friday, 17th August 2012 12:01pm

The brain trust behind the Wynn nightclub operation have decided that the smart thing to do in this day and age of social marketing is to pool all their social media feeds into a gigantic virtual funnel and put it on..... a website!


Fresh on the heels of "Brotero" comes this, a thoroughly tasteless display of hubris and unintentional comedy. Go, enjoy, marvel at the smug douchery of famous people you've never heard of mugging it up like pretend rock stars. I haven't seen such a display of make believe bullshit since I fingerbanged a JV cheerleader at the senior prom after party! Honestly... "the men behind the nightlife" puhllllllllleeeeze... Can we get this internet stroke job to go?.

In honor of this fine display of internet genius, I have begun to draw up the paperwork with ICANN.org to secure one, and only one domain name with a custom tld just for these hosers, and that name is:


Merry Christmas!

Steve, you've let the inmates take over the asylum and they're running it like their names are on top of the building, not yours.

That website gave me _____.

The new mantra of Wynncore. And it sucks. Just for the record, I actually like EDM. Or electronica. Or whatever the fuck the PR flunkies are calling it now. But the physical embodiment of what is going on here is just too much to handle. If EDM is a church, Wynncore and those like it are becoming the Conservative Christian Movement. Scary shit.

it's like someone threw up all over a myspace page and then posted it with links.

Sigh... Somewhere the Gods of Desert Inn are laughing their asses off. Of getting ready to strike a helluva lightning bolt.

^vinnievegas & ^meltyrselfdown pretty much sums up my feelings. It just makes me sad.

Isn't one of the goals of a strong social media campaign to be omnipresent so that you can reach your customer at all times? I'm no expert, but don't you think that a website created for social media purposes be optimized for mobile viewing??

Plugging in www.wynnsocial.com for assessment with Google's www.howtogomo.com illustrates that the website is crap. I don't know who is making these decisions at WynnCore, but this is a complete miss. I mean: VEGASTRIPPING HAS A MOBILE FRIENDLY SITE!!!!

If we thought that Chuck went apoplectic about 24k and VegasBill, check this out from

A partnership with Klout, the standard for influence, will offer those influential in social media exclusive perks, such as opportunities to meet Wynn Resident DJs before their sets, or a virtual "key" to Wynn nightclubs, unlocking a world of new music from top DJs.

Perks for those with high Klout. Interesting.

I'm still pretty agnostic on the whole "Tweet For Comps" simply because it has been the M.O. of the travel industry since the dawn of time. But, this certainly adds to the conversation...

Now that I've had a couple, and scrolled through the cable wasteland of no-name "stars" I can talk more sucinctly... How does viewing pics of whodafuck propel me to stay at a 5-star resort? How does witnessing douchbagery-in-action make me want to reserve a table at Botero? Wynn was suppose to be above that goddamn shit. It was suppose to be elegant. Now it a trampstamp and a vodka redbull. This bullshit website seals the deal. I don't want to have a hotel room next to the last CelebrityRehab trendy-drug-user! If I did, I would stay at Mandalay Bay! Steve Wynn - wake the fuck up.

Yes, I'm drunk. Proofread first, then post.

I'm convinced Wynn's catering to the Douchebags is a downturn-survival-strategy. When the economic crisis is over, this will be the critical moment; will Wynn cut the douche-pandering and go back to high-end luxury? Or will he open more nightclubs and keep fleecing the dudebros?

As I see it, Climaxx! is an example of Wynn hedging on a continuation of the economic crisis. He doesn't expect it to be over soon, and speaking as an economist I'm tempted to agree with him.

Wynn must be making an obscene amount of money from this, and it's such easy money that it must be practically addictive. I doubt he'll give it up when the market turns around.

Plus, I bet he's tickled pink to be sucking away the young and rich club crowd from the other players in town, MGM in particular.

He was stewed at Murren for glutting the market with high-end rooms when City Center rolled out, so what did he do? He went after a key part of MGM's demographic and captured it. In your face, Jimmy boy!

He's not going to surrender this golden goose to the competition, not until LV runs out of ecstasy and young and stupid people with money to burn.

StudiodeKadent, I think you are right that the downnturn definiitely opened this door up, but I don't see it closing for Wynn properties. It just makes too much sense even when things rebound. I think it's going to be here to stay for Wynn resorts.

The only positive for someone like me that prefers comp rooms for a trip and didn't qualify at a place like Wynn is that the 'higher end' club scene should make the other properties on the strip less crowded from that clientele.
