Get What You Want, When You Want It!

AVT Creates A Groundbreaking New Television Commercial! 

CORONA, Calif., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- AVT, Inc., (Ticker: AVTC.OB) (www.autoretail.com), uveiled a new video today, which will be used as both a corporate presentation and a television commercial.
The concept of the commercial is to show that people can get whatever they want, when and where they want, through Automated Retailing.
"It's no longer about candy, chips and drinks," stated James Winsor, CEO of AVT. "We intend to change the perception of vending, and introduce the world of Automated Retailing -- where businesses and brands can expand their reach, power into new areas, and increase sales through automation."
Self-service automated retailing systems allow brands and retailers to increase distribution with virtually no overhead, and offer products to consumers 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
"Using technology to draw the customer into the transaction is powerful and highly effective," according to Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT. "We specialize in using technology to expand brands and sell more products. From innovative designs and touch screen interfaces, to incredible consumer recognition and biometric systems, AVT is at the forefront of this revolution in retailing."
Playboy Playmate Charis Burrett stars in the production, and is featured riding into the scene on a customized Yamaha R1 Motorcycle. She sensually walks over to an Automated Retailing Center, where she finds the perfect little black dress for the evening, changes in to it, then departs with her date.
"This commercial breaks some boundaries," according to Illingworth. "We wanted to create something that would grab attention and focus on automated retailing's many benefits -- both to the consumer and to the business owner."
The commercial is set to run on national television networks, as well as local stations in major markets, within a few weeks.
