Douche of the Decade Joe Francis is threatening to sue Piranha 3D for showing "someone loosely based on Joe Francis" screaming bloody murder while piranhas tear his penis from his body with their rusty saw blade teeth.
"I get to play Joe Francis!" Jerry O'Connell practically screams through the telephone. "Oh, wait. For legal reasons I'm supposed to say, 'I play someone loosely based on Joe Francis.'"
O'Connell's supple, layered portrait of Not Joe Francis is a study in the quintessence of douche. In the below video, Not Joe Francis cheers, "Make sure those titties are nice and perk-ay!" then grunts exuberantly and executes a dance move that is somewhere between a fist pump and the cabbage patch.
In the next video, Not Joe Francis screams as a school of piranhas bite him—and his penis—to pieces. Great plumes of blood swirl in the water. He screams and screams.
Piranha 3D appears to be holding back on the moment when the audience sees Not Joe Francis' disembodied penis flying towards them in three dimensions. This is probably for the best: It would be a disservice to witness that moment on any screen that is not at least 15 feet wide and 3D-equipped.
