Gay DVD ends up in Mormon packaging
Just a little mix-up of content in the DVD…
Imagine your little Mormon daughter popping in a DVD to see a documentary of a LDS boy band’s rise to “stardom” and instead she gets the chance to see folks boinking on the screen and talking about life in porn. How delicious! (365gay.com):
Copies of a movie aimed at a Mormon audience have been pulled from store shelves after a recording mix-up left buyers watching the gay movie “Adored: Diary of a Porn Star” instead of the “Sons of Provo.”
Two Utah families caught the problem after purchasing DVDs at Deseret Book stores, which are owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The families, one in St. George and another in Riverdale, brought the problem to the attention of store clerks. The DVDs were removed from shelves. In response to the mix-up, HaleStorm Entertainment, the company that produced “Sons of Provo,” has announced its commitment to fight the spread of pornography.
The company is offering $100 to the owner of every “Sons of Provo” DVD that instead contains “Adored: Diary of a Porn Star,” as an incentive to collect all the mixed-up copies. It’s also going to donate $100 per DVD to CP80, an anti-pornography group.
The PG-rated “Sons of Provo” chronicles the life of an LDS boy band, Everclean, on its relative journey to stardom.
Everclean — come on they look like they could have been in “Adored.”
“Adored: Diary of a Porn Star” is an unrated independent film that is not pornographic, said Corey Eubanks, spokesman for Wolfe Video, the largest distributor of films featuring gay and lesbian characters and stories. However, the film does contain sexual situations and its subject is the life of a gay porn star.
Everclean cannot possibly be more entertaining that send-up of a Christian boy band that Kate and I saw while in NYC – Altar Boyz. Just about the gayest bit of fun on Off-Broadway. Five small-town boys — Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan and Abraham, lolol.
