Remember the late '90s when marketers printed URLs on every product, package or ad? Get ready for a bit of deja vu as marketers begin to promote MySpace URLs. Some go for the straight up product name, like Aquafina or MotoQ, but many seem to prefer a name with a twist, like these:

* www.myspace.com/vspink. Victoria's Secret's Web space offers downloadable stationery, games, quizzes and an opportunity to get your "Pink Panty Personality Profile."

* www.myspace.com/deadmanschest. Second "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. See an exclusive trailer and download it to your own MySpace page.

* www.myspace.com/anythingbutcute. Dodge Caliber. Check out the episodic adventures of Pig & Bear and their "friend" Caliber, who kills the cute every time.

* www.myspace.com/666. Enter "The Omen" short-film contest, get free ringtones and wallpaper and find other cheerful stuff.
