Virtual Greats Makes Celeb Avatars


Posted June 11, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

If you play Gaia Online...well then you must be a very lonely person. But now you can be a very lonely person who looks like Paris Hilton.

Virtual Greats, a company that plans to create celebrity look-a-like avatars has signed deals with Justin Timberlake, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Snoop Dogg, Paris Hilton, Raven Symone, Tila Tequila and The Incredible Hulk to turn their likenesses into virtual goods for members of online communities.

"The inspiration for Virtual Greats came when I realized that this was a $1.5 billion market without any high-value copyrighted material," Reuben Steiger, CEO of Millions of Us and a former Second Life executive, told Variety.

Although teen MMO Gaia Online is the only place you can be virtually great, the company plans to offer its goods across 60 virtual worlds and social media platforms.
