A Dimitri Follow Up - Ladies Beware
dimitri.jpgRecently we posted the phone messages that knucklehead "Dimitri" left for a girl named Olga. (I've listened to it in awe three times. The best part is the next day Gary Cooper-like high noon ultimatum.) The messages have spread on the web like influenza.

I was curious and did a little digging. It turns he is a "disgraced former doctor" named James Sears from Toronto. He calls himself "Dimitri the Lover." And the wheels are coming of the wagon quickly. His comeuppance is coming. Swift and sure.

He has been selling a "seduction manual" to losers in Toronto on how to seduce woman. And has held seminars -- at $40 bucks a pop -- to "teach" men tricks of the pick-up artist trade. Toronto newspaper The Sun wrote an expose on the guy last week.

James had his medical license stripped for "repeated sexual misconduct" sixteen years ago. His website has a radio interview where he uses the catchphrases "elegant" and "couldn't take my eyes of you" repeatedly. Just ridiculous.

Ladies, especially those of you in the Loyal 77 that read my columns, please be wary of any man that says, "You look so elegant. I just couldn't take my eyes off you." Kick that guy in the grapes.

That's a very elegant article. I couldn't take my eyes off it.

To the losers who actually sign up for this:

Do the world a favor - go suck on an exhaust pipe.


"Dimitri" is the reason why abortion should remain legal.

I saw some of that Mystique pick up guy on The Soup, showing guys how to seduce girls. I'd love to punch that Jamiroquai looking punk right in the chops.

Well said Conserv.... Those losers are relentless sometimes. Fellas--help a girl out when you see this happening. We might actually call you...

Are we sure this isn't some really clever, ongoing viral campaign for the movie - Magnolia???

said coxmt on June 30, 2008 4:41 PM.

I've wondered the same thing, coxmt, that it's some kind of elaborate hoax. But I don't think it is. The guy has a website selling books, had flyers up promoting seminars, has given radio interviews and records seem to indicate he was a doctor.

We can't absolutely sure, but signs indicate he is a real guy/bum.

If we are being had, I will be first to tip my cap and admit they got me.

said Johnny Wright on June 30, 2008 4:45 PM.

It would be really funny, if even Dimitri didn't know that he was part of a viral campaign. Someone at the agency that was promoting Magnolia 9 years ago forgot to uncover the ruse and Dimitri has been living a lie ever since.

said coxmt on June 30, 2008 5:41 PM.

That would be legendary.

I smell a movie script

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

said E on June 30, 2008 8:05 PM.

I hate Dimitri.

said Johnny Wright on June 30, 2008 9:04 PM.

I guess I should reveal myself.
Dimitri is My Alias.
I'm sorry for not revealing this sooner.
Johnny you are elegant and I can't take my eyes off your pervstache.

said Dave on July 1, 2008 3:49 PM.

Uh, thanks?

said Johnny Wright on July 1, 2008 3:56 PM.

What about this Pherlure crap I keep seeing advertised on YBNBY.
It is like some hormone cologne with a free "Seduction Guide". lol
Who would pay for this crap?
(I might try it if it was free) lol

said qb8young on July 1, 2008 4:01 PM.

Yes, the cologne comes with a Seduction Guide, half pound of bacon, membership in the Johnny Wright Book Club and a Scaramouch "Thought of the Day" desk calendar.

The Deluxe Gift Pack is available in the YBNBY Gift Shop.

(I had to google it, but this is what qb8young is talking about. Pretty funny:

Well done...)

This is viral marketing for a film by Dimitri The Lover by some of the Borat producers. Google "Dimitri The Lover viral marketing hoax". It is just leaking out now.

said Jamie on September 28, 2009 8:59 PM.

Go to twitter and add "/dimitrithelover" after the main url. SPECTACULAR!!!
