New low for Asgi

Postby sniper269 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 5:08 pm

Not to hate on asgi but this new gi girls thing is just, weird. I liked asgi better because it had non of that stuff, people still bought guns from them with out these videos. I don't understand this new "tactic" and feel asgi would be better offwithout it. Thoughts about this new series.

My opinion:
The GI girl is very pretty and all, but it is a step in the wrong direction for GI. They are starting to become like Evike in the sense of using attractive women in revealing clothing (sometimes, not all the pictures of the new GI girl are of her in revealing clothes) to try to sell stuff. I don't like it.
Kind of back on the forum. I will occasionally post when I have nothing to do. Still will respond to pm's as normal if I home and paying attention.

Best regards, the new and improved Silversage/Silverherb/Silverware/etc etc.

Agreed.

It's disgusting that they're going that route. The whole "sex sells" attitude is enough to push me away from purchasing from a retailer.

ASGI: If you wish to keep your more mature customers, ditch the objectification of women. And if you want proof of my statement that you will lose your mature customer base, just head on over to the website of your competitor.

^Agreed.

I think they should focus on their great customer service and products than following other companies' strategies (who won't be named :mrgreen: ) of using girls to sell their stuff.

EDIT: Got ninja'd, but it basically applies to both posts.

Personally, I would rather not have a woman objectifying herself on GI TV. Have you guys read the comments on the Airsplat Youtube page? Everyone just says what they wanna do to that girl.
Though ASGI would not lose my business. E fail is nothing but problems in my book.

EDIT: Now I got ninja'd....lol.

I don't know if I am playing the devils advocate here but you have to look at it from a businesses point of view. If this new GI Girl can bring in revenue than by all means why not use it. In addition it is not like she is being forced to do this either, it is her choice to get in front of that camera. Plus this is not the first time that a woman has been on GI TV, a while back they use to have a girl helping Tim show the new guns. Long story short as long as it brings in money why not use it, but as soon as it scares buyers away they will stop using a GI Girl because ASGI is a businesses after all, they are here to make money.

I really don't care if she stays or goes. As long as GI remains a high-quality retailer, I really just don't care about anything else.

i don't think it's that much of a problem... if she wants to be sexually harnessed by random guys on the internet than let her do it... it is true that ASGI is just using her so people would buy more of their stuff, but having one model isn't that bad. It's not like Evike which has like an army of 20000000000000 Asian super-models @ their disposal.....

Gi posted this on their fb making it seem like its a terrible thing you're all saying, but I agree. There's no reason for the sex appeal. I don't mind women airsofting. Yeah, its attractive. But did you pay an actor, or did you get a female player? That's the real question at hand to me. If she plays, its fine. OTHerwise, this is a low. Whatever you do, do not flaunt this on the home page like evike.

I see no problem in it. AirsoftGI is simply displaying one female in tactical gear with airsoft guns. Now it'd be a different story if she was wearing clothes that were too revealing to be deemed "family appropriate". As for the "sexual harassment" , it all depends on the person looking at the photos. If I or anyone were to post pictures of our girlfriend or for some their wife , we would be mad if someone decided to say very demeaning things about their partner, however we do not think of that, we simply think of us showing that girls do play airsoft. To some it may be that airsoftgi is going the wrong direction, to some its simply a girl with airsoft gear, be what it be , its interesting that airsoftgi has finally put up a girl way after Evike has put up more than one. I do not want to start any type of argument or anything, just putting in my two cents so please do not get mad at me.
