back to article Shrek's Donkey poses with bustier-clad strumpet

DreamWorks and Paramount big-wigs are none too happy with a fashion shoot in men's mag VMan, featuring characters from the Shrek movie franchise cavorting with scantily-clad models. The studio powers that be gave VMan the green light for the spread, apparently hoping for some top exposure before the imminent release of Shrek: …

Is that veering on being in breach of the extreme porn law? I mean she's dressed up pretty sexy and that Donkey looks like he may be in for a good time?

It's Thursday isn't it.

I'm sure it's Thursday. This sort of stuff is supposed to be published on Friday.

(It really is Thursday isn't it?)

Nope, it's 1:22 PM on a slow Friday afternoon as I'm writing this.

ummm, what?

What exactly is risqué about any of that? A little odd perhaps but you get more outré attire in most city centres of a Friday night... well in the kind of clubs I go to anyway :)

Ha Ha!

Plan by greedy film execs for free publicity backfires.....

Still it could have been worse, they could have used a close up of one of Fiona’s eyes and rotated the image through 90 degrees, now that's something I'd pay to see.....

Just a thought....

Didn't they think of asking them for proof photos before they said yes?

Oh thanks a lot

Won't we all get done now under the UK's bizarre new laws designed to protect cartoon animals from such depravity?

Is this a re-enactment of http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04/12/stable_address/ ? The bloke was looking at the donkey, but his mind's eye saw the woman...

I would have thought the outrage would be about...

...the poor quality of the merging. It looks like they've not even tried matching the tones, many of the placements are off. Content aside, it's really not very good.

WTF?

Why the fuss?

There's nothing particularly risqué about any of those pictures. Seriously, compared to some of the stuff I've been tricked into looking at on the internet, that's nothing. If they'd put Rick Astley in the pictures, I'd be offended...

Anyway, how does that old adage go, 'All publicity is good publicity.' I strongly suspect that they had full knowledge of how the Shrek images would be used and the whole thing is a PR stunt.

Re: Why the fuss?

I agree, it's fake publicity, and the pictures are shit at best (my six year old could do better with "paint", actually I don't have a six year old, but even an imaginary six year old could do better).

Now, what they really needed was a "Muffin Man"

Thumb Up

Screw the controversy

All I have discovered from this article is that Emma is devestatingly attractive.

I hope Ms Bee won't be to disappointed that she is no longer my object of lust.

If they were so upset about it I doubt they would be sending press releases out about it.

Job opening?

"Special Thanks Laura Salvato at Paramount Pictures"

Wonder how Laura's job prospects are? If Paramount is actually upset about this, then perhaps it might be time for some hopeful executive to apply for Laura's job.

mexican donkey show

And here I was thinking donkey shows are usually just an excuse to get you into an dark alleyway where the locals can beat up/mug you.

What's the fuss??

Studio execs complaining that poorly merged images shown in mismatched conextexts in publicity stunt that they agreed to somehow demeans their IP? The worst I can see is that the sexy lingere models seem very out of place with the animated donkey. It's kind of like seeing the teletubbies in a Mercedes commercial.

Its not great marketing, in that I am not sure how many fashion mag readers are going to run out to see Shrek: Happily Ever After, or how many Shrek fans are going to run out to buy the fashion mag. However, other than that, its pretty innocuous.

Paris, because we'd all like to see her in that black bustiere....

erm, doesn't a bustiere generally require the wearer to have a bust of some description?

Terrible stuff

1. Shouldn't this count as kiddie pr0n? The male on the right of the picture has no visible body hair, such as males of European descent commonly grow by age 14 or so. Lads that age should be watching Shrek, but not with the lingerie models thrown in.

2. The lampblack on the woman's eyes suggests that the carbon footprint of the shoot is about equivalent to an LA-to-Copenhagen flight.
