That's My Face But Those Aren't My Private Parts

It wasn't until recently that I realized just how pubically-challenged actresses are these days. First came news that Kate Winslet donned a merkin for The Reader. Then it was revealed that Sienna Miller, presumably also being paid a goodly sum, couldn't be bothered to temporarily sacrifice her landing strip for the part. This necessitated that a SFX wiz stare at her pudendum while digitally adding pubic hair to her for a few scenes.

The absurdity level has now reached new heights with the movie Birthday Suit wherein the nudity and graphic sexual content is done via green screen. You have to watch this video. The lead actor and actress wear Pantone green undergarments so that the breasts and genitalia of others can be edited in for all the naughty scenes. So, when they are schtupping in the movie, you'll actually be watching digital chimeras that are mostly Jason Lewis and Vinessa Shaw with the fun parts of their bodies belonging to the stunt doubles.

The director couldn't cast Chloƫ Sevigny or someone from Short Bus?

The video is on the "Funny or Die" website. There are no entries in the Internet Movie Database with credits for Jason Lewis and Vinessa Shaw or Jason Lewis and Joe Swanberg.

FOD is very good at deadpan, so it's quite possible that you've been punked here.

That is very possible. I gotta give them credit. It is good stuff.
