It is surprising that Playboy is still in business. Playboy is so passe; it is from a different era completely. The Internet has siphoned away the majority of both its print and television audience and Playboy has no chance of retaining what little is left. Advertisers are now embrassed to proclaim their products 'as advertised in Playboy.' Hefner's lavish lifestyle is draining Playboy's coffers and it will be bankrupt in less than five years.
