Priest Off Clergy Repellent

If you’re Catholic, look away now. Actually, if you’re Catholic, what are you doing reading my blog, you filthy pervert! That’s fifteen hail marys and a large diet coke, thank you.

This is a very amusing fake ad making fun of the very serious problem of priests abusing children. If only the solution were this simple.

No Pants Day 2008

Flash mob group Improv Everywhere held its annual No Pants Day today. In the past it was just a secretive thing but it’s been heavily publicised so it was even on the news here in Australia.

Interestingly, the TV show SVU has ripped off one of their other ideas, the “Grand Central Freeze” and used it in a recent episode – without permission or credit. Seems that some desperate writers are stealing stuff from Youtube.

Dirty Movies By Thomas Edison

Thanks to the site Human Marvels for bringing my attention to this video of strongwoman and striptease artist Charmion. Her main act involved stripping down to her underwear while on a trapeze, showing off her strength in the process.

One of her biggest fans was Thomas Edison, who filmed her act in 1901. It was a fairly risque thing to do at the time.

That’s right folks. Thomas Edison was a dirty pervy pornographer.

Well, sort of.

Thai Ladyboys Do The Can-Can

These are Thai Ladyboys – transsexuals – performing the Can Can (or the Moulin Rouge movie version of it, anyway). These guys certainly can dance and they fill out the corsets and skirts beautifully. Unfortunately I don’t know where this cabaret show is located. Still, doesn’t detract from the performance!

Man Flashes Crime Reporter

A man being investigated for beating up his mother (a judge) got himself into further trouble by flashing the crime reporter as she filmed in his front yard.

According to police investigators, Judge Lisa Richette, 79, was assaulted on Tuesday by her son, 48-year-old Lawrence Richette, in some sort of domestic dispute….

On Wednesday afternoon, when a WCAU-TV camera crew and female reporter visited Lawrence Richette’s home, he opened the door in his bathrobe. Then he opened his bathrobe.

“That’s what I think of TV news,” he said.

He’s due to be charged with indecent exposure. I think the lesson here is: flashing is not the best way to get rid of a reporter, and you’ll end up all over the blogosphere. Forever.

Boobs Boobs Boobs (Summertime Love)

This is Italian Sabrina Salermo singing her 1987 hit Boys Boys Boys (Summertime Love). I hated this song when it came out, but I had cause to watch the entire video the other night thanks to the constant gratuitous nip-slippery.

I mean, have you ever seen anything else like it? Her boobs are popping out throughout most of the song. And the woman in the wet t-shirt at the start looks like she’s got nothing on underneath.

Rather raunchy for 1987, I think.

Top 10 Nudity In Music Videos

There aren’t that many music videos that feature nudity. There’s a few that hint at it, but I wanted to make a list of vids that really went for it – full frontal nude scenes with the musicians or models really having to go naked. So here’s my top 10 list.

Girls On Film – Duran Duran
This video made huge waves in 1981 due to it’s depiction of topless women mud-wrestling. The BBC banned it while MTV opted for heavy editing. The controversy helped Duran Duran reach the top of the charts. Girls On Film is considered to be the first example of nudity in a music video so it deserves a place in this list.

Relax – Frankie Goes To Hollywood
This is the banned version and it’s quite a thing to watch – leather boys, guys in drag, simulated anal sex and a very, very fat man who strips off his toga (aargh, my eyes!). This video was cleary too gay for 1984 which is why they made a whole other, tamer version.

Path of Thorns – Sarah McLachlan
In this video from 1991 the Canadian singer sings naked although her modesty is protected by deep shadows and her hands across her breasts. “The idea of nudity is simply the closest way to be pure and real and honest,” she once told a fan “and that’s what I’m trying to portray in my music.” She’s also appeared naked and smothered in mud in another video, Into The Fire.

Closer – Nine Inch Nails
Offers full frontal female nudity near the start, plus plenty of bizarre, kinky and downright scary visuals. The video was directed by Mark Romanek. MTV heavily censored it but the song still went to number 1.

Erotica – Madonna
This video features images filmed during the photo shoot for Madonna’s book Sex. There’s the odd glimpse of a breast here and there, plus a whole swathe of kneeling naked men. The final shot features Madonna standing naked on the side of the road, hitchhiking.

Livin’ On The Edge – Aerosmith
The start of this video features the rather disconcerting image of Steven Tyler stark naked, half covered in body paint and holding his privates in one hand. It took five hours to get him made up. “I was embarrassed to hell,” he said. “I got naked and held myself in.” Livin’ on the Edge indeed. The video also features Terminator 2‘s Edward Furlong.

Thank U – Alanis Morissette
“Courageous” might be the best word to describe Alanis’ appearance in this video. She’s pale, wide-hipped and vulnerable, her long hair covering her breasts. The final scene sees her standing naked in a street with her nether regions blurred. Apparently a whole city block had to be closed down to film the video. This song features the lyric: “Thank you, terror.” Now there’s a sentiment you don’t hear anymore.

By the way, check out French and Saunders spoof of the song, complete with wandering merkin.

What’s My Age Again – Blink 182
The band streak through the streets and yes, they are naked, except for the bit with the little girl and her magnifying glass. Apparently the guys wore Speedos at that point.

Rock DJ – Robbie Williams
Robbie strips naked and then goes further, ripping off his skin and muscles until he’s a skeleton. As usual, the clip was censored in the US and Europe. perhaps more for its gruesome quality than its nudity.

Get Naked – Method of Mayhem
“Gratuitous” doesn’t even begin to describe how much nudity is in this video, although it’s all done in the best possible taste, what with pixels, shadows, black lines and the sun shining out of Tommy Lee’s ass. This video is more like soft porn and makes Duran Duran’s efforts look like high art. Still, it should be included here as the end point to my top 10 list.

But wait, there’s more. I didn’t want to stop at 10, so here’s a couple more.

Bonus Video – Red Hot Chili Peppers
The guys haven’t ever made a music video naked but they are famous for appearing on stage nude except for socks… on their cocks. Here they are doing it in front of thousands of people. Classic.

Bonus Video: Just Lose It – Eminem
Aside from parodying Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pee Wee Herman and MC Hammer, Eminem does a nude street run and the camera dips low enough for pixels to be required. A cameraman said of the nude shoot: : “He wasn’t shy in stripping off, despite all the people on set. He even remained naked during the breaks in filming and messed about with us all. And remember, it was freezing.”
