Have You Met The Bitcoin Booty Girls?

With bitcoin struggling to gain mainstream approval, many cryptocurrency firms have created campaigns to make the public aware of their services.

Payments processor BitPay famously sponsored a college football game called The Bitcoin Bowl; though the company later abandoned its deal with ESPN when it didn't draw as much attention to the cryptocurrency as expected. Digital currency enthusiasts similarly blanket the web with blog posts and articles explaining the cryptocurrency's benefits, but one group of bitcoin fans have taken promotion to the next level with sexually-themed YouTube videos.

Sex Sells

"Mr. Anonymous" and the "Wet T-Shirt Girls" are a group of three online personalities who have made it their mission to promote bitcoin in what is arguably the creepiest way possible.

Mr. Anonymous, a man in a Guy Fawkes mask, and his two bikini clad sidekicks make videos for the Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL) website in order to raise awareness for the cryptocurrency. The videos depict the women doing things like getting doused with water and spanking each other with printouts of the bitcoin symbol paper-clipped to their bikinis.

Confusing Message

In an interview with Vice's Motherboard, Mr. Anonymous tried to lay out the group's overarching message, though his twisted answers left much to the imagination. The group, he said, wants to "get the message out there in a fun way." When asked about his opinion of bitcoin, Mr. Anonymous said he believes the cryptocurrency is "an opportunity for mankind to do good deeds."

Donations Welcome

For viewers who enjoy Mr. Anonymous' videos, a QR code at the end allows them to make donations. The group says they will use the funds to create more bitcoin promotion videos, though so far their donations total just $20. If the group is able to raise more money, Mr. Anonymous says they will create the "ultimate video" - one in which they are "shooting machine guns, shooting dollar bills, and doing some wet T-shirt action in the jungle, or a river."
