Life imitates art

A few weeks ago, I was watching Real Stories on channel 10. The episode I saw happened to feature a story on the “Celebrity Sex Tape Director”:

We reveal that so called celebrity sex tapes are actually slick productions and big business. We meet the Aussie director who has worked with some big names.

At the time, I thought this was moderately funny. Now though… I’m wondering if it was actually a joke at all.

According to news reports, Screech from Saved By The Bell has produced a sex tape. Disaster? Embarrasment? Career setback? Not at all – his manager seems thrilled:

It might not exactly be Oscar-caliber work, but Diamond’s manager, Roger Paul, seems to be at least a little happy about the development for his client. “Dustin has been trying to escape the Screech typecast. So this may help me get more bookings,” says Paul, who says he hasn’t seen the tape.

Maybe the joke wasn’t much of a joke after all.
