Creative Duo Introduces David Cameron Porn

Prudish U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron wants to ban porn and “sexual propaganda aimed at minors” from the Internet in Britain. The controversial proposal has stirred up quite a debate in the U.K., with heated arguments from both sides.

Henrik Düfke & Felipe Montt, two advertising creatives based in London, have created the perfect solution: erasing the explicit content from pornographic films so the viewer can enjoy the plot and top-notch acting taking place between the sex scenes. Their site, features both modern and vintage porn, with all the sex bits edited out. The results are predictably hilarious, and are a great way to satirize Cameron’s misguided attempts at censorship while reminding us just how ridiculous porn films are.

Some highlights include “El Diablo Loco,” featuring a Spanish-language devil eating chicken, along with some comical cuts; “Peeping Dwarfs,” which features, you guessed it, peeping dwarfs spying on Snow White (we’re guessing that Disney didn’t authorize this one); “A Handy Electrician,” which concludes with the line, “Oh my, let me take a look at it”; “Mum Joins The Party” with a hilarious cutscene and perhaps the worst acting on display in any of these films; “Help Me Doctor’s” bizarre, “Nurse, Ms. Lovelace is done with her bubbles”; and “One Large Pepperoni,” which is pretty self-explanatory. But we won’t give them all away, check out the videos on their website. Surprisingly safe for work.
