ADDING MULTIMEDIA Girls Gone Wild Kicks Off Canadian Tour to Promote August 23rd Release of GIRLS GONE WILD CANADA on DVD

SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(CCNMatthews - Aug 2, 2005) -

Nationwide Filming Tour to Support Very First GGW Title of Sexy Canadian Girls Going Wild

Today, Mantra Films, Inc. announced that this Saturday, August 6, 2005, Girls Gone Wild (GGW) will begin a two month long nationwide Canadian tour to promote the release of GIRLS GONE WILD CANADA on DVD. Girls Gone Wild has not only sold millions of DVDs and videos, but has become a bona fide pop culture phenomenon in the United States by capturing adventurous, beautiful, and REAL young women going wild and getting naked at Mardi Gras, on Spring Break, and on college campuses.

GIRLS GONE WILD CANADA features 100%, all real Canadian girls filmed during GGW's very first tour of Canada earlier this year. That tour took the GGW film crew to every Canadian province where they filmed the sexiest young women partying hard and showing it all off for the cameras in over 17 different cities along the way.

GIRLS GONE WILD CANADA is the very first title Mantra Films has ever solely shot in a non-US market, and then distributed exclusively in that market. The DVD will hit stores nationwide on Tuesday, August 23, 2005. Girls Gone Wild Canada has an SRP of $24.99, runs approximately 55 minutes, and will be available at better entertainment retailers everywhere. Additional Girls Gone Wild titles will be released in Canada later this year and throughout 2006.

"Girls Gone Wild is excited to be returning to Canada after the hugely successful tour we had earlier this year. The footage from that tour had some of the hottest girls we've ever seen, doing some of the wildest things we've ever witnessed, so we created Girls Gone Wild Canada," said Girls Gone Wild Founder and CEO Joe Francis. "This is an exciting milestone for Girls Gone Wild since in our 8 year history we have never released a non-US title. Bottom line - Canadians are going to love `Girls Gone Wild Canada' becomes Canadian girls are sexy, especially when they're naked!"

Additional information, high resolution cover art and images from Girls Gone Wild Canada are available to media outlets for download at girlsgonewild.com/canada/press.

The first date on the "Girls Gone Wild Canada" Tour will be held in Halifax, NS on Saturday, August 6. Other scheduled stops on the tour include Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Vancouver, Thunder Bay, Kingston, Regina, among many others. The young women captured on film during this latest tour will appear in future GGW titles.

Over the past 8 years, Girls Gone Wild has become a pop culture phenomenon in the United States. Some of the programs GGW has been featured on include "Saturday Night Live," "The Tonight Show," "Access Hollywood," "CNN," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "Entertainment Tonight," "FOX News Channel," "Mad TV," "VH1," "Maury," "Extra," and "The Howard Stern Show."
