Here is a perfect example of a video that has interesting possibilities, but goes quite literally into the toilet. And it's making me wonder just what message director Henri Pachard is trying to get across.
In last month's AVN I reviewed his new video Ginger & Spice, in which there is a heavy commode sex scene between Ginger Lynn and Jamie Gillis. This time around, Pachard has concocted a whole video around one. If anyone can take adult fantasy off the straight edge, it's Pachard. But sometimes he slips off that edge into a ravine of questionable taste.
The basic premise here is how a ladies' room, one stall in particular, becomes the common denominator for successive generations of females bent on losing their flower. Cute idea, and it works for just so long. The "1944" skit featuring a drunken soldier (Tony Montana) wandering into a powder room full of chowderheads, turns into the Tony Montana sweepstakes. And guess who's the winner. Did someone say, Blondi? The best bit is "1956" where an adorable Jamie Summers gets defrocked by a gum-chewing snot (Tom Byron). Eight years later Summers returns to the scene of the crime only to get tooled once again, this time by plumber Randy West, the Robert Redford of the adult industry. For bizarre camera angles, try one shooting up from the flush water into the faces of West and Summers as they pay sexual homage to the porcelain throne. Then try what Pachard does in the next scene, "1975".
Jerry Butler, Krista Lane and Alexa Praval are co-habitating said washroom, babbling mumbo jumbo about "the dynamics of a threesome." "You're not just a hole and a mouth," Butler tells Lane. A man of words. But the overt suggestion here is that a certain substance ingested through the nasal cavity will do wonders for your attitude. Then we're given ample demonstrations. Very poor taste, and it destroys the whole tone of what could have been a fairly credible production.
