It’s not porn, it’s HBO

Especially valid for the Game Of Thrones

The Cannes Lions festival, which celebrates the professional work of those in the communications industry, screened Alberto Belli’s “It’s Not Porn, It’s HBO” video at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase in 2014 and I must say it’s definitely stayed the same. The video offers some clever commentary on the state of today’s entertainment industry, and it’s pretty hilarious to boot.

The video is a montage of several amateur actors — an array of gleaming hunks and skinny bitties — gushing to their friends and family about the roles they have recently scored. As each actor describes the opportunities they have been offered, it becomes clear that they have all been cast in hard-core porn films. The actors’ naiveté, combined with their undying enthusiasm, is what makes the film so funny. It appears that the film is a testament to the desperation of a generation of unemployed actors.

Well, at least they will be instantly recognized after a few seasons!
