VSL:WEB // Who are these naked people?

Monty Python called them naughty bits, but when Python aired on ABC (in 1975), the euphemism itself failed to make it past the censors. Now those same naughty bits are staging their comeback — and once again, we have the British to thank. Take the BPA’s wicked new video, “Toe Jam.”

BPA is the Fatboy Slim side project British Port Authority. David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal are the featured players here. But no musicians were used in the making of this clip, which could almost pass for an American Apparel ad — minus all the apparel. An outgoing group of attractive young models strips down and dances. Black bars pop up — and amusingly move — to cover breasts, butts, and other assorted naughty bits. It’s soft-core and redacted with irony, and the highlight, by far, is a bare-assed game of human Pong. We call next!
