Let this be a lesson to the porn industry: make hardcore films that spoof Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors, and the outcome won’t be so sweet.
I got a good chuckle out of Caballero Video’s Ben & Jerry’s-inspired titles like “Hairy Garcia” “Boston Cream Thigh,” and “Peanut Butter D-Cup,” but the ice cream makers didn’t find them quite so amusing. Nor did they like the twisting of their “famous and distinctive” logo from “Vermont’s Finest” to “Porno’s Finest” or the the compromising positions those innocent, grazing cows were put in.
Ben & Jerry’s slapped Caballero Video with a big, old law suit yesterday, requesting profits from the films and unspecified damages for exploiting their wholesome brand and ripping off their logo. [NY Post]
