Video vixen Buffie The Body, known for her curvy backside, has just inked an endorsement deal with Azzure Denim, helping promote the jean line and appear in their new advertising campaign.

Azzure, who provides quality denim clothing for men and women, is launching a movie-inspired ad campaign that will being appearing in magazines across the nation, with Buffie being on the campaign's featured models.

"I am excited about being a part of an Azzure campaign," said Buffie. "I love their clothes and the company. And once I saw the pictures, I loved them even more!"

One aspect of the campaign Buffie is most excited about is that it will focus on her other assets, and not just her butt, which she is most recognized for.

"The pictures focus on Buffie the person and not just Buffies butt, plus they're gorgeous," explained the video vixen. "This campaign will give people the opportunity to view me from a somewhat different perspective. It shows that I can sell ads with my clothes on as well as off."

The jean company's inspiration for the ad campaign came from the movies "Sin City" and "V Is For Vendetta." They will have a black and white comic book feel to them with hints of color throughout. According to Vice President of Marketing, Ryan Prescott, Azzure Denim's goal was to include people from the hip-hop community and mix them with people from other industries. They feel it has worked in favor for both parties.

"Buffie was the perfect selection for the hip-hop community," said Prescott. "She has worked hard to create an image for herself there. She has great presence and she was great to work with. We also took into consideration that she has always been supportive of the Azzure Denim brand, so we figured why not support her as well?"

The ad campaign is currently running in magazines such as XXL, King, Vibe, Fader and Complex.

In addition, Buffie recently began shooting for a new Atlanta-based television show called "Hotel Atlanta," where she serves as host for the "15 Minutes Of Fame" segment.

The new TV job is an opportunity to be a role model and change stereotypes, according to the model.

"I strive to be different than your typical model, in order to give all females hope -- dark skinned girls, thick chicks, ex-exotic dancers and anyone else who feels like the odds are against them," says Buffie. "I want to inspire them and let them know you can do whatever you want to do and be who you want to be, no matter who you are or where you come from."
