Theroux ‘honoured’ at porn spoof

Posted: April 20, 2009

He returned to our screens on Sunday 19th April in the Channel Four programme Louis Theroux: A Place for Paedophiles, but the quirky interviewer – who’s famously hung out with the Hamiltons, Sir Jimmy Saville, swingers and South African white supremacists – has been given the porn spoof treatment by StraightHell.Net.

With the premise that he’s doing a documentary about gay fetish filmmakers, a convincing stand-in for the bespectacled broadcaster soon finds he’s become part of the story in dramatic style. As the online studio’s name suggests, this may be uncomfortable viewing for some, but fans of forced-gay scenes will lap it up.

Shown a link to a clip by ETO, the genuine Louis Theroux responded with: “I feel honoured!”

It appears imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and Louis has an understanding sense of humour. Stills can be seen at http://is.gd/sY7d and a trailer downloaded at http://preview.straighthell.net/scenes/louis1.wmv
