Pamela Anderson Lap Dance Video: Much Like the Facebook IPO
Pamela Anderson Lap Dance Video is More Like the Facebook IPO Than You May Have Imagined
In a way, this video of Pamela Anderson giving her friends lap dances at an LA party spot is a lot like the Facebook IPO: the people in the video are getting a lap dance from former Baywatch (and DWTS) star Pamela Anderson, and you're watching from the outside.
What, you think regular people can get Facebook stock at the listed IPO price of $38? No, that's not how it works. You're going to have to buy it (if you can) at whatever price the first stockholders (founders, early hires, advisors, and their friends) are selling. (The first trade, at opening bell, was at $42.05 before settling at around $40.)
We're not claiming that the analogy is perfect, but you must concede that there is a parallel between the Facebook IPO and a Pamela Anderson lap dance on Sunset Blvd.
