Gay Porn On Conan O’Brien?

Posted July 25, 2007 11:42 AM by with 0 comments

It’s one thing that “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” was the top-grossing movie in the US this past weekend — you could argue that the movie is using humor to take bring very real gay issues to the forefront. But when Conan O’Brien “accidentally” plays a CyberBears clip (without attribution or permission) instead of a clip from “Chuck & Larry”, it makes me wonder if its doing any good whatsoever. I know, I know — it’s all “just a joke”, right? Well, real funny stuff:



See the clip from Conan here. Also see out this “humorous” blog entry written by unskinny Conan staff writer Aaron Bleyaert who chose the clip (and all the “ew gross!” comments).

(For the record, the clip used was from Feed The Bears.)

    porn is a pretty mainstream part of american gayhood, much more than american straighthood–this site celebrates that presence and edges it on. so even while it’s trivializing to see a gay issue spoofed like this, it’s not like we’re not asking for it. if you don’t want to be represented by your porn, then don’t make it such an integral part of your life.

    as for the argument that this particular clip is any more tacky, gross, ridiculous or unrepresentative than some muscle stud fuckfest, that’s as much an example of discrimination as anything.

    O’Brien is one of the most anti-gay asswipes on TV today. When Andy Richter was still on the show, the comedy was smart. It went into the toilet when he left. Conan thinks because he mugs for the camera that his anti-gay “jokes” are funny and his audience eats it all up. These are the people who oppose equal marriage, yet try to convince us it’s the right-wingers and this show is a prime example of how straight “liberals” really view us.

    I think the use of the clip is harmless and funny.

    If Cyberbears really wants credit, they deserve it so Conan should have acknowledged it later with a retraction some other day. But that’s Cyberbears’ call.

    To identify it as “Property of” would spoil the joke — that Conan is trying to pass it off as CHUCK AND LARRY.

    So it’s entirely possible they did get permission from anyway to use the clip. Did you ask

    The clip might be mocking the bear sex with apples as silly and pretentious.

    But as a gay man in good physical fitness that doesn’t use apples in sex, I would tend to agree.

    Overall, I think the joke is teasing Adam Sandler more about his sexuality than denigrating homosexuality.

    P.S. I don’t know that jokes invovling gay people or clips on TV necessarily SHOULD HAVE to produce political “good” all the time. As long as they’re not producing political “bad.”

    Humor, clips or involvement of gay people can be neutral.

    I hope one day our involvement becomes neutral most of the time!

    I guess it’s a problem if the audience only sees silly or unflattering depictions of gay people all the time.

    But do you feel Conan or Sandler have disdain or contempt for gay people like other comedians?

    Cyberbears issued a press statement saying that Conan used the copywrighted clip WITHOUT permission, which sort of just adds insult to injury to the whole thing. This is from their press release:

    “The notion of broadcasting a portion of one of our adult movies over open network television violates the spirit of the legal and ethical guidelines our company follows to shield our content from inappropriate viewers. Of course, we are also concerned about protecting our copyrighted materials. We were surprised that neither the performers, the director, nor the company were credited. We do understand very well the legal notion of fair use as it applies to copyrighted material used for reporting, satire, and public interest media. We believe that NBC’s inappropriate use of clearly labeled adult content in violation of the stated terms, their misrepresentation of the content presented, and their failure to credit the actual source all exceeded their rights.”

    The bluster over this silly, puerile little bit is distracting from the huge, stinking elephant in the room – namely that CHUCK AND LARRY film.

    I’ve noticed a trend in recent gay-made for gay-consumption comedy that mimics the “shock comedy” of South Park, Strangers with Candy et al. In this new gay form of comedy the – let’s be generous and call them – writers seem to delight in thinking of the worst possible things to say about us. Imagine BOYS IN THE BAND without the wit

    Bad comedy notwithstanding, my point is that I’m willing to tolerate self-deprecation (funny or not) when it’s just that – SELF-deprecation. I think the gay community is remiss in sitting by and letting straights do it – yet again. They’re not laughing with us, ladies and gentlemen. Don’t think that for a minute!

    I wonder how long it will be before some ditzy homo with an IQ of about 20 comes on here and posts something like, “your all takin this way to seriosly!”
