|03:30 pm - Nathan Fillion is 'Nailing Your Wife'|
Nailing Your Wife starring Nathan Fillion. Spoof porn for people who like everything about porn, except having to watch people have sex. It's only about two minutes long. Safe for Work (nothing happens, it just looks like it's going to).
Fillion does a pretty good job, and he makes his character a wee bit more interesting than it might have been (just like Adam Baldwin always does too). He's extremely passive, and you can see him looking at the director to be told where to stand and what to do. Which I think is cute.
There's a discussion on metafilter about whether it's misogynist, or making a point about misogyny. But I don't think it's as deep as that, I think it's just a bit of a daft joke.
ETA - but it does have a violent (accidental) death, so be warned. It may be that's the point, that violent death is PG and a blow job is not.
LOL! It's just an excuse for a bad pun.
Yes, I think so. And someone said on metafilter, a bit of the sort of joke where something suddenly changes from pretend to real. Like Roadrunner draws a door and goes through it.
Well as you know I like Nathan Fillion a lot (have a taste for certain types of porn too), but I found that pretty upsetting.
Oh, sorry. I'll put a warning. Because it didn't upset me, and I'm generally quite touchy, I didn't think it would upset anyone else.
ETA - not well expressed, but anyway, I'll put a warning.

happytune you might like to read the metafilter discussion, because it expresses both points of view, with justice to both sides I thought. One person (I don't know if a man or a woman) says:
Formally this video mimics pornography: two individuals meet in a seemingly banal situation only to traumatically shift their transaction ... with no respect for the continuity of the illusion that they are 'normal people.' In the PG Porn narrative, that purports to be a porn narrative in the same way that porn purports to be a 'normal' narrative, the death serves the same function as the sexual act - what we 'thought' or at least were willing to collude with the story-tellers was one kind of narrative was in fact, something completely different... The video disassembles all the expectations one has of what should happen next, she's sexually aroused for no apparent reason he is a willing, if slightly passive participant, and then instead of even the beginning of any kind of consummation, any kind of acting out of their desires, the story takes a hard turn out of the narrative it had been telling... and becomes a narrative about death...
I know that's a pretentious way of putting it, but I think that is the point of the joke (as well as a pun) that something jumps out of the pretend into the real, and like in porn where the story is pretend but the orgasm is really shown, a real death intrudes into an obviously fake story.
Oh dear. I think I must be very banal. :-) I was disturbed by the grossness of the death - not anything meaningful. Isn't that pathetic. :-)

The woman's an awfully good actress for a porn movie...
I think she's a 'real' porn actor, judging from the adverts on the side-bar. But yeah, in the pretend world of the clip, she's a better actor than he is, as well as more confident as a person.
