NEW YORK, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "STOONAD, ITALIAN FOR STUPID" is a hilarious reality game series based on the first ever Mafia-themed social media site and gaming platform, www.MafiaMob.com, which was launched in 1999.
In touch with the times, Stoonad replaces violence with funny gags and ridiculous competitions based on mob shows and movies. Contestants go head to head to win cash prizes delivered in a paper brown bag and the grand prize of a busted up classic Cadillac.
Stoonad will be filmed on the Jersey shore and the New York Metro area. The cast is comprised of a combination of the "least likely" people to be in the Mafia and a few that really look the part. The show was launched with Indiegogo at www.Stoonad.com last month.
"We wanted to create a 'hybrid format' by blending social networking, reality TV, and gaming into one interesting experience," said Creator Ron Gastelu.
Anyone can audition by emailing a one minute video to MobsterCasting@gmail.com. Six of our 21 contestants can compete from around the globe in a special "Consigliere" role reporting to "The Godmother" via web cam.
Keeping true to the hybrid concept, the producers are inviting their followers on the web and the game to get involved in casting for the show over the next few weeks at www.youtube.com/mafiamobcom. Play the game for free and cast your "likes" on our YouTube.com channel.
MafiaMob.com was launched as the 1st Mafia game and social site in 1999 and has been heard across America on shock jock programs including Opie & Anthony and Howard Stern. The site launched www.MafiaMob.TV in the summer of 2008 and it created a big buzz by using game players as actors. This led to the development of the hybrid series "Whack Everybody" now titled "Stooand."
