Presenters and performers at the MTV Video Music Awards got more than just exposure to millions of teenage TV watchers. Celebrities who graced the show's stage—including skin-flashers like Britney Spears, Eminem and Pink—also walked away with an enormous goodie bag with about $18,000 worth of loot. On 3 Productions produced the gift bag, which consisted of a trunk decorated with an MTV logo designed by Peter Max, and a four-foot tall gift bag packaged by the Ultimate Basket that was filled with products from more than 140 vendors. The bag's highlights: Sony's Cybershot digital camera, an Epson printer, a Nintendo GameCube, Chanel rimless sunglasses and a complimentary stay at any W hotel in New York. Fitness-friendly items were also thrown in—like a one-year membership to Crunch gym, Skechers roller skates and a velour Fila warm-up suit—perhaps in order to help keep up those buff bodies the celebs like to flaunt.
