Salt Lake City’s Deseret News reported yesterday that new DVD copies of the Mormon boy-band comedy SONS OF PROVO were accidentally sent out with the Italian gay melodrama ADORED: DIARY OF A PORN STAR encoded onto the disc instead of the family-friendly comedy. The packaging and label for the SONS OF PROVO DVD had the correct artwork and text, but viewers were surprised to see ADORED when the DVD began playing on their television screens. Apparently, the mistake was made by the third-party company contracted to do the DVD replication for both films. Neither Wolfe (the distributor of ADORED) nor Halestorm Entertainment (the distributor of SONS OF PROVO) was aware of the mistake until customers began to complain about the mix-up.
Kathy Wolfe, the founder and CEO of Wolfe Video, comes from a family that includes several Mormons, and says of the mix-up, “Of course our company has no responsibility or involvement in the mistake, but we are concerned that some families might have been upset by the sexual nature of the film.” And, she added with a wink, “But, if any of the adults in the audience enjoyed what they saw, we encourage them to check out the entire DVD of ADORED and some of the many fine films available from Wolfe.”
Atta way to not miss a pitch opportunity!
