This has nothing to do with real estate.

I usually get some emails that break though the spam barrier that have nothing to do with real estate. Usually they are Nigerian money scams but now and then I get something that is really surprising.

Hurley Bikini Bombshell Bar Refaeli

Scores Sports Illustrated 2009 Swimsuit Issue Cover

Los Angeles, February 10, 2009 – Hurley model and spokesperson Bar Refaeli is gracing the cover of the highly anticipated Sports Illustrated 2009 Swimsuit Issue. This is Refaeli’s first Swimsuit Issue cover and her third consecutive appearance in the annual celebration of sun, sand and swimsuits.

“We are thrilled for Bar,” said Hurley Vice President of Marketing Lyndsey Roach. “SI is celebrated for its exceptional sport and swimwear coverage, and Bar’s inclusion in this iconic publication just underscores why she is such a great fit with Hurley.”

Refaeli joined the Hurley family in July 2008 as a face, voice and spirit of the brand. In addition to appearing in national campaigns, she hosted the 2nd annual Hurley Art Chest fundraiser for Boarding for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles in October 2008, and will judge the upcoming Hurley Walk the Walk high school fashion competition in Orange County on February 24, 2009. A design collaboration is also in the works.

I think I am on some sort of PR email list for bikini models which suits me fine.
