It's red faces all round over EU's dirty movie
The European Union has turned to shock tactics in its latest bid for self-promotion... making its own dirty video.
In a bid to boost interest in the workings of the EU, the communications commission have made a video of 18 couples having sex.
The promotional 44-second video, posted on the website YouTube, opens with a man and a woman stripping each other naked.
What follows are a series of bed-rocking scenes, with sweaty passionate clinches in all manner of positionings. Two gay couples are included in the interests of sexual equality.
The highly charged scenes are interchanged with snaps of bottles rattling on a shelf and an egg on toast shaking under a grill.
The film, entitled "Film Lovers Will Love This", finishes with the couples' orgasms and the double entendre "Let's come together".
It then tells the audience "Millions of cinema lovers enjoy European films... every year. Europe supports European films".
But not everyone who has watched the video, found it amusing. Maciej Giertych, an MEP with the League of Polish Families said the EU was using "immoral methods".
Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP MEP, said: "I suppose this film is appropriate. The EU has been screwing Britain for the past 30 years."
