While at Cal Arts, I hooked up with some cool people to make the follow-up to the The PETITION for BOO BERRYAside from all the other babble that will follow, if (Boo Berry’s Casting Couch) BON BON BONDAGE say’s one thing, it’s that SUGAR IS A DRUG. You heard of the White Horse?  The White Pony? Well Fun Dip is the Purple Unicorn. Anyway. This video, mostly shot on classic 3/4-inch tape, is obviously my tribute to bubble gum rock and sexploitation movies, a quick response to some trends I was noticing in the packaging and selling of, well, just about everything, really; but Bon Bon also traces it all back and suggests these trend were always there. Subversiveness often comes in sweet packages, whether it be the sweetness of Robin Zander’s delicate yet disturbed voice (in part 2), or the mischief of a hot chick licking some rock candy. Aside from the silly Howard Stern tapes (getting chicks to pose with SNAPPLE) I watched, I was in awe of Chuck Barris, and I was reading his 1993 book, The Game Show King. Ever hear of the POPSICLE TWINS? Well watch that and you’ll see where it all comes from.It’s all related. There’s really two parts to this video, but YouTube rejected the more adult portion…I can understand why, but I’ll put it up somehow, somewhere.. In the meantime, check out the cool box that my friend Deborah made, and also, you can read more rambling about  the project in the “description” section of the YouTube post.bon-bon-front-and-spinesm.jpgbon-bon-back-boxsm.jpgAND LASTLY, If the PETITION for BOO BERRY was a result of too much Kim’s Video (East Village), then Bon Bon owes a thank you to Rob from MONDO VIDEO. The first person to offer to rent my videos.
