Porn Band Videos Nekkid Bass Player On Westboro Baptist Church’s Lawn, Shocking Nobody

Porn Band Videos Nekkid Bass Player On Westboro Baptist Church's Lawn, Shocking NobodyIn a fortuitous conjunction of publicity whores, Get Shot!, a California band billing itself as “the sleaziest punk band in the world,” has shot a two-minute video of its bass player lying on a blanket and masturbating on the lawn of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas — the “God Hates Fags/America/Puppies” loonies. Internet reaction appears to span the entire range from “ha-ha” to “meh.” Someone, somewhere was probably shocked, although the allegation has yet to be proved.

Bassist Laura Lush (Lydia Lunch libel!!) said in a press release on the band’s sad Facebook page,

“The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy.”

Lush’s greatest dreams have apparently been realized, as the band’s “porn website” — a sort of Suicide Girls clone — was occasionally shut down by heavy traffic Friday after Gawker covered the video stunt.

The band also tweeted a claim that someone from the WBC’s IP address “spent 41 minutes looking at our website. That’s longer than the video on your lawn!!!”

An unhappy music fan added a long, gripe-filled comment to the Gawker story, claiming that Get Shot! is “not a punk band. They play ’80s hair metal” and saying that the video was merely one another in a long string of so far unsuccessful publicity stunts aimed at getting a record deal.

What? A rock band using sex and sleaze to get publicity? Unheard of! Why, that’s almost as ridiculous as the idea that a bunch of raving fundamentalists would march around at high-profile funerals carrying signs proclaiming “God Hates Fags.”

Frankly, we think it’s a match made in publicity heaven. And yes, the video is at Gawker, and it’s NSFW.
