'American Morning' Praises Disgusting 'Produce Paradise' Music Video
Want to know how to get on CNN these days?
Make a music video in a grocery store with you and your sibling pretending to urinate on produce in a stock room, smacking each other in the crotch with beets, opening and licking the contents of a container on the shelf and standing with bananas sticking out of your boxer shorts. Then post it on the Internet.
Throw in a doctored grocery store advertising circular and take a shot at Mexican immigrants and it might even land you on one of the network‚Äôs top shows, ‚ÄúAmerican Morning‚ÄĚ ‚Äď where ‚Äúhosts John Roberts and Kiran Chetry bring you the most news in the morning every weekday.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWell, we made it to kind of spoof on ‚Äėgangsta‚Äô rap,‚ÄĚ said Mark D‚ÄôAvella. ‚ÄúSo [we had been working in produce] ten years combined. And after a while we were just kinda like it would be funny to make this video. And it worked well with a school project.‚ÄĚ
Makes you wonder what they‚Äôre teaching in school these days. Needless to say, Chetry was impressed on August 30.
‚ÄúAll right, so now you guys ‚Äď by the way it was pretty good editing,‚ÄĚ said Chetry ‚ÄúYou major in this in college?‚ÄĚ
The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., parent company of the supermarket chain A&P, filed a lawsuit against Mark D'Avella, 22, and Matthew D'Avella, 19, for their YouTube video. ‚ÄúAmerican Morning‚ÄĚ only offered a statement from the company‚Äôs president and CEO, Eric Claus:
‚ÄúThe video shows them licking, gesturing, and doing absolutely deplorable things with produce. This is in total contrast to the food safety standards that we uphold as a company.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAmerican Morning‚ÄĚ clearly supported the brothers instead of the company that had its reputation damaged because of the video.
Although she didn‚Äôt show an obvious approval of the two‚Äôs video, Chetry did offer them advice ‚Äď ‚ÄúYou never know there could be a bright side,‚ÄĚ said Chetry. ‚ÄúMaybe Kevin Federline would like to star in your next video. You guys can produce for him over there in
