In anticipation of the June 20th release of the new Paramount Pictures film The Love Guru, starring Mike Myers in his first original character role since Austin Powers, Pitka -- the film's title character -- has taken to the web to provide some online fun for web surfers.
Starting over on the Official The Love Guru website and continuing throughout cyberspace at such popular web destinations as Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and more, there is hardly a corner of the web left unchartered by Pitka.

By making Pitka your friend at Facebook, you can earn your chance to win a year's supply of delicious hot sticky cinnamon buns and click on a hilarious soundboard of lines from the film, not to mention view various videos easily widgitized for posting for the world to see on your own blog. Even more opportunities to win can be found at The Love Guru on MySpace with a chance to jet off to Hawaii. If that's not your cup of tea, there's also weekly blogs and a photo gallery of the guru's various celebrity friends. Pitka's own personal website compiles weekly Sutra videos (also available on YouTube) and lots more. Every which way you look, The Love Guru is online spreading the love and his teachings for the world to see.
Pitka (Mike Myers) is an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves back to the U.S. to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke's wife starts dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) out of revenge, sending her husband into a major professional skid -- to the horror of the teams' owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer). Pitka must return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the team can break the 40-year-old "Bullard Curse" and win the Stanley Cup.
