Local NBC News Anchor Buys Presidential Barack “Hottie” Obama Domain Name
You’ve all probably heard the news from Buffalo, New York by now. President Barack Obama visited a famous wing joint in Buffalo yesterday, and he was greeted by a 45 year old woman who loudly proclaimed, “you’re a hottie with a smokin’ little body!” Kinda funny, kinda inappropriate, but what the heck. You may only get to meet the president once after all.
NewYorkMag.com reported that shortly after this made the news, Buffalo news anchor Scott Levin (from NBC affiliate WGRZ) thought he could cash in on this news event and decided to buy HottieWithASmokinLittleBody.com in the hopes that someone would be interested in buying it from him.
It’s pretty interesting to see a local news anchor registering domain names related to a news event in the hopes of cashing in on it. If Levin really thinks someone would want to buy it, he shouldn’t leave the standard Godaddy parking page up. It’s also interesting to see people who aren’t in this business buying domain names with the hopes of flipping them for easy cash.
