With a virtual swinging bachelor pad as its centerpiece, Exopolis’ new, Flash 8-intensive microsite for T-Mobile promotes the wireless brand’s new Hotspot Home service, which enables mobile phones to work on home WiFi networks. Let Jimmy, our suave, robed host and proprietor, guide you through "Jimmy’s Hotspot," a spacious living room that doubles as a lounge of sorts and is filled with an eclectic group of guests, some with corresponding links tying into Hotspot. 

Directed by Mike Maguire of the Directors Bureau, the web initiative lets users interact with guests like Fatima, who invites you to watch the TV spot accessible through a simulated big screen tube. Others, like Sheena, adorned in a fetching pink dress, will get up to restock the party fridge, with Jimmy requesting she pick up an ever-useful jar of Tang. 

And then, of course, there’s Jimmy, who despite his yuppie dude exterior, is multi-talented as proven by the hot pink links at the bottom of the page, which let you watch him juggle, yo-yo and even pluck at a harp.
