Hot Chicks With Douchebags: The ‘Antidote to The Pickup Artist

51RXLskmChL._SL500_AA240_.jpgAt the risk of promoting yet anotherblog book, we called up Jay Louis, creator of the site HotChicksWithDouchebags.com to find out if he had trouble getting people to agree to be in his book, the appropriately titled Hot Chicks With Douchebags, hitting shelves July 8.

Louis — who calls the book and his site the “antidote to The Pickup Artist — says he found most of the pictures through group licensing deals with a couple Web sites, although he “couldn’t get some of the ones I really wanted.” Users submitted roughly 20 images that made the final cut in the print edition. Louis has additional projects in the works, although he declined to say what they were. Look for Moderately Attractive Girls With Kinda Nice Dudes to hit stores by Christmas.

On the Web site, the majority of the content is user-submitted. Louis includes a disclaimer that he will take down any image if the person pictured objects, and says he has to do this roughly once a month, but less so as the audience grows and the brand gains traction. “People are getting the joke,” Louis says. “They are with a hot girl and they feel like they’ve acquired the ‘hot.'”

Moral of the story: guys are both douchebags and morons.
