Unintended Side Effect? Porno Music Videos

Here and here (and on my tumblelog sometime last year; couldn't find the link).

Obviously NSFW.

A few years ago I did a bunch of experiments putting visual FX on porn videos from the Web with Adobe After Effects. Called it Acid Porn and made two DVDs. At the same time, Snoop Doggy Dogg was selling DVDs that were both porn and music video.

This is an emerging trend.

It's tempting to think that it's tied to the rise of YouTube, but it's not; Snoop was on this path before YouTube existed. So the answer to the question, unintended side effect, is no - but I bring it up because the mistake is so easy to make.
