Hollywood Grind says:
The Super Bowl Comcast cable audience in Tuscon, Arizona had their program interrupted by 30 seconds of porn after a touchdown. A portion of a video from Club Jenna starring porn star Evan Stone was shown.
The clip appeared on Tucson-based KVOA-TV but, according to reports, cable provider Comcast is to blame for the snafu.
"The feed originated with NBC local affiliate KVOA in Tucson and traveled via a fiber optic line to the Cox Cable Company, which then relayed the feed through a separate line to Comcast," said tech analyst Ian Paul. "Both KVOA and Cox say the problem lies with Comcast, as the KVOA feed was porn-free when it left the station, and Cox did not receive any complaints from its customers."
Corporate Affairs Manager with Comcast, Kelle Maslyn, said:
"We are investigating the cause, and working with engineers at Cox Communications to find out why this happened."
When Evan Stone learned that his face, and other body parts, had been broadcast during the Super Bowl he said:
"That’s incredible," he said, adding that he thought he had reached the peak of his media saturation when his face appeared on an episode of South Park.
"The people who appear on South Park, they usually destroy them," he said. "When I saw myself on that show, I figured, ’I’m vindicated. This is all I need.’ But this, wow."
Stone doesn’t want Comcast to take all the credit, so he added:
"Oh, it was all a master plan. I had been planning this for years. It serves them right for not letting me play in the game."
We love a porn star with a sense of humor.
