If you are one of my personal friends, then you are very aware that I shot a web series back in the spring of this year that took place in the offices of a sex toy factory. You know this because I have described everything about the place to you in glorious detail, and/or showed you pictures of genital-shaped objects lying on desks on my cellphone. If you are related to me, then you probably did not hear about it and at this point, you can stop reading if you LA-LA-LA-I-CAN’T-HEAR-OR-SEE-ANYTHING-DO-NOT-WANT-TO-KNOW-MORE- SO-GROSS (talking to you here, Dad). But this (honestly mostly PG-13) seven episode web-series is finally going to see the light of day in some fashion. Right now it’s on youtube. And you have to see it. Its safe for work in that if you don’t go fullscreen, the fake vaginas probably won’t be noticeable. You will also need to wear headphones for the Bill Wise dialogue. You probably always need to do that, but especially with this show.
In case you are unaware, and most of you probably are unaware, the world’s most popular sex toy, The Flesh Light, is manufactured here in Austin. I’ll let you google that one yourself. They are a husband and wife-owned, multi-million-dollar company and they hired Mishnoon Productions to create a scripted series based on the fictional behind-the-scenes of the real day-to-day goings on at the offices. We shot on location. A location that totally blew my mind. I’ll leave the description of the place to a later post but lets just say that their office is nicer than your office. I saw the factory too, and just wow. Wow. All of this I will tell you about later. Although, it will be a lot funnier if I tell you on the patio at Rio Rita where I can use crude hand gestures.
So here is episode 1, starring local heartthrob and one of my on-screen faves Jimmy Gonzales and adorable newcomer, Joel Watts. And then of course there’s Bill Wise, who straight up steals the whole series and runs away with it to Mexico. I know this because I’ve seen every episode. We had a screening at the Violet Crown a few Saturdays back. Even at an 11 am screening, he killed it.
Oh, where am I you’re wondering? Of course you’re wondering that. Here I am, debuting in episode 2 as the mellow janitor Genevieve. Yeah, I’m playing the janitor at a sex toy factory. Surprised? I am actually.
If you liked this at all, please forward it to your friends. I think something about the next 24 hours could be important.
