Truly a Hollywood story, this video starts off with the Hollywood sign and promises to explore “the annals of Hollywood history” (or should that be “anals?”) Anyway, “Prickly Heat Videos” has something in the water that makes all the office workers extremely horny – and practically unable to utter one word of dialogue. Obviously, writer and produce Bruce Savage didn’t have faith in his guys because they don’t even try to act. The story is told through long scrolls of type, sometimes with clichés like “Tomorrow is another day.”
You don’t have to fast-forward far for the best scene in the video; it’s at the beginning with guy-next-door newcomer Jason Pride and the always horny Tanner Reeves. Jason’s got dark and seductive eyes, with a friendly and attractively approachable quality. He proves he’s a formidable top, as he first lets Tanner lick his whole body, and then he takes control.
The final threeway seems a bit too orange – no matter how I adjust my tint – and it’s not very cleverly shot. Also, for some reason, much to the dismay of the model himself, this company is insisting on naming him “Miguel Lopez” rather than his preferred less-ethnic pseudonym “Michael Lamas.”
The always-trusty black stallion Randy Cochran struts his stuff and blond Dallas Taylor (sans his chest hair) shows up as a glamour model. Tony Belmonte plays an encouraging photographer who makes Dallas fell all right about doing nudes. The cameras continue to click as they two of them get more acquainted.The shooting style and storyline aren’t outrageously creative, but the hot young and ethnically-mixed casting is excellent. The setting suffices to make it something that will be picked regularly from the shelves.
