CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Adult luminary Katsuni co-stars with rapper Bow Wow in a new music video posted to YouTube Friday that's racked up over a quarter million views. There's just one problem: According to Katsuni, the footage featuring her was swiped without permission.
Indeed, the same footage can be found in the video for (appropriately enough) "The Conspiracy Strip Club" released last month by techno band The Electronic Conspiracy, and shot by director Raphaël Carlier in Paris club Secret Square.
"This guy has no right to do that," Katsuni said in an email. "That's just piracy!"
Adding another interesting wrinkle to the story is the fact that the song itself, "Drank in My Cup," is simply a stretch of freestyle rapping by Bow Wow over the instrumentals to the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop top 10-charting song of the same name by rapper Kirko Bangz.
Bow Wow PR rep Aliya Crawford told AVN, "The video was created and posted by a fan, not by Bow Wow or anyone associated with him."
That contention begs a few questions, seeing as how Bow Wow appears throughout the video. Regardless, its original posting was pulled from YouTube sometime around 12:30 p.m. PST today.
