Serenity fans will be pleased, and the vibe packaged along with the tape or disc also adds value.
This infomercial spoof starts with Serenity, unable to sleep, calling a close friend ("I just wanted to hear your voice.") and waking up in flagrante with Chris Cannon. After he spoos on her face and the requisite fadeout, she addresses the camera directly - "just between us girls" - in a clever spin on infomercials that shows her making her own dildos in a kitchen in what look like Jell-O molds and having stagey "real-life interviews" with performers like Aurora Snow, who tells about how she was so surprised that these pretty dildos got sent to her and then we see her use one. "And then my boyfriend came home," she confides to Serenity, and you can imagine what happens next. You'd probably be right, too. And when Serenity, Jacklyn Lick and Christi Lake "brainstorm" trying out strap-on harnesses, or Jacklyn Lick "tests" a vibe to turn on boyfriend Barrett Blade, the results are as expected.
Although this vid parodies infomercials, it also functions as one. Serenity actually does own Las Vegas Novelties, a toy company, and most of the performers here have contract lines with that company. Director Red Ezra shows his usual masterful hand with locations and angles, and pre-nom videography by Don Crand and David Lockard combines commercial-perfect high-sheen gloss and gently-diffused moody sex.
