“Jubilee!” at Bally’s Las Vegas Responds to Harsh Reviews With New Mobile Billboards

“Jubilee!,” the classic showgirl show at Bally’s Las Vegas, has been getting some blistering reviews lately, with some suggesting it’s the “worst show they’ve ever seen, including in past lives.”

Abysmal ticket sales sparked a recent “re-imagining” of the show by alleged choreographer-to-the-stars, Frank Gatson Jr. The results, it seems, were not what the show’s producers had hoped.

It appears the folks at “Jubilee!” are tired of the public flogging by show-goers, so it’s launched a series of new mobile billboards in an attempt to fight back.


“Jubilee” comes from the Hebrew term” yobhel,” meaning “ram.” As in “Feel free to jubilee your lousy reviews up your tuchus.”

The ads are intended to address the public criticism of the show being “akin to a train wreck, except with train wrecks, at least you get some free hazardous waste.”

The impact of this bold ad campaign remains to be seen.

      Hi, Lisa. Our site sometimes has humor on it. Granted, it’s not always humor everyone appreciates, but some find it entertaining. Hope you’ll visit again sometime.

      Not clear about your definition of “sellout.” Doesn’t that typically mean somebody does something for financial gain, while compromising their ideologies? We paid Facebook $80 to boost our post about sex on the High Roller so more people would see it. We’ve never made any money from this site. If you’d care to explain how that’s selling out, we’d be glad to listen, after which we’ll take a look at your blog and admire your creative integrity and contribution to the Las Vegas online community.

      Thanks, Matt. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. We don’t have a problem with being a “sell-out,” we’re just not sure that’s the right term. Boosting a post is a pretty common practice in social media. For a site that generates revenue from its site visitors, it’s a great way to get more visits and revenue. Again, not sure that’s selling out, because selling out implies someone has compromised their artistic integrity for money. First, we don’t claim to have any artistic integrity. We do a blog to have fun and try and help people save time and money when they visit Las Vegas. Second, we don’t make revenue from our site. So, boosting a post on Facebook doesn’t seem to meet the criteria of selling out. If it is selling out, we’re really, really bad at it. Thanks for your comment, and sorry you’re feeling lonely. When we feel that way, we tend to blog.
