Colorful vans advertising topless maid services for $99 and hour-long Thai massages for $40 have infiltrated Burbank streets in recent months, peeving local residents and garnering national media attention.
One person who isn’t complaining? Hot Topless Maids spokesman Sami Ammari.
“Oh my God, it’s been great,” Ammari said. “The phone does not stop ringing.”
The company, he said, had to turn down 100 clients last weekend because the maids were booked. Angelenos, he continued, have flocked to his office asking for his autograph and picture, as he’s been the subject of numerous media reports across the nation.
But local residents aren’t amused, so Burbank officials are brainstorming a possible regulatory response to the roving advertising vehicles.
“These are not attractive vehicles,” said Deputy City Manager Joy Forbes, adding that the vans began popping up in Burbank over the summer. “We think that coincides with the time that the Los Angeles ordinance became effective.”
