CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Anna Paquin has once again made a conversation piece of the popular New Sensations' film, Tru: A XXX Parody, this time during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. She had previously plugged the film to George Lopez when she appeared on his show, Lopez Tonight, three years ago.
Paquin was all smiles when Kimmel asked what her favorite fan tribute was to the hit HBO show. "My favorite was the porn parody," she answered definitively. She then went on to talk about how her and co-star/husband Stephen Moyer were so amused by the New Sensations' parody that a few years ago they ended up buying a copy of the film for the entire cast and crew of True Blood.
"How can you tell the difference between the porn version of your show and the actual show?" Kimmel asked.
"It's a really fine line," Paquin responded. "I think our wigs are better."
Like so many of the New Sensations' parodies that have released over the years, Tru: A XXX Parody continues to garner a great deal of mainstream attention. Since its release, the parody was prominently featured on entertainment sites such as PerezHilton.com, Jezebel.com, PopWatch.ew.com, BestWeekEver.tv, NYMag.com and ScreenJunkies.com. Snoop Dogg’s tribute music video to Paquin’s character Sookie Stackhouse purposely contains the same distinctive wig used on Eric in Tru: A XXX Parody. When Entertainment Weekly spoke with True Blood creator Alan Ball a few years ago, he even told the magazine, "We just found out that they're doing a porn parody of True Blood. That's certainly a moment of going, 'Wow, we've arrived'."
New Sensations' parodies have earned critical acclaim and popularity over the years for their rock-solid casting choices and outstanding production values which stay true to the films and television shows they are parodying. Written by former New Sensations contract star Ashlynn Brooke, Tru: A XXX Parody centers around how the simple life is shaken when death comes to the small, quiet Louisiana town of Bon Temps. The film stars Ashlynn Brooke, Misty Stone, Bill Bailey, Gracie Glam, Johnny Castle, Lana Violet, Levi Cash, Lindy Lane, Shay Sights, Vanessa Naughty, and mainstream media sensation James Deen.
Belle Casten, New Sensations’ Vice President of Global Sales, stated, "Any time one of our movies is featured on a mainstream show as like, Jimmy Kimmel Live, we see a spike in sales. First-time consumers of adult entertainment will pick up a copy of Tru: A XXX Parody due to their piqued curiosity, so it’s a good time for distributors and stores to stock up. The taboo of adult entertainment begins to fade when a popular show like Jimmy Kimmel Live shows it is okay to indulge themselves."
Being a topic of conversation so many years after its initial release certainly indicates that Tru: A XXX Parody really embodies the essence of the original show. It serves as a shining example of what makes adult parodies so far-reaching and popular among mainstream audiences.
