A little 70s porn music would really liven that up.

Link broken? I'm getting "snow" where the video should presumably be. Crystal clear car ad, though.

"Keep in mind, you're ordering a naked person to obey you. Be clear, direct, alert, and civil."

I dunno know about you, but when I'm ordering naked people to obey me civility is the last thing on my mind.

Isn't that haircut a bit too immaculate for a prisoner?

this is going to make me a killer top.

i was going to say something about the turnover rate among guards and the necessity for a training video, but perhaps this isn't something you want to train someone for "on site."

i'm impressed, though. its much more innocuous than Fox led me to believe.

Do prison guards actually dress like airline gate attendants?

Only in the better class of federal establishment. The ones corrupt politicians get sent to :)

Clearly. Which is why he told the prisoner to run his fingers "vigorously" through his hair. To mess it up. Sheesh, rookies...

I remember being a teenage during the D.A.R.E. anti-drug campaign, and being shown one of those scare-you-straight (haha...ironic) videos about what it's like inside a prison. It was documentary-style (i.e., real convicts), and there was a very realistic and graphic strip search scene. You know that part where the prisoner bends over and spreads his cheeks? Yeah, we were treated to the back of a mullet, some hairy red ass-cheeks, and a wee winking brown-eye.

Strangely enough, nobody in this class of teenagers laughed or said anything inappropriate.

Looking back, I'm wondering whether that prisoner was aware that an entire generation of students (at least in my school district) had seen him bent over and spread. A private strip-search is humiliating enough...

How come the female inmate actress isn't as hot as the male inmate actor?!

Ok, the lifting up and looking under breasts thing makes sense - but no "please spread your vaginal lips, please."?

In my experience, city police, Iowa City the visual strip search was much less polite, far less professional (tone of voice), and verged on maximizing humiliation. I was asked to turn around, bend over, spread my cheeks and then asked, again, to lift penis, lift scrotum after having been asked to do it upright and facing the searcher.

Maybe it's a federal vs. city thing.

Hmm, are the actors Bureau of Prisons wonks or gay porn actors? Both?
posted by oats at 7:59 PM on April 27, 2007


I'm almost sure the older actors are former Congressional pages circa 1983.

It brings me great peace that the great '80s band "A-ha" volunteered their time to make this video.

Personally I loved the credits at the end. I can just imagine that on someone's resume.

Carpets? Privacy? Civility? An all-white cast?

This must be from the Scandinavian Prison Board's collection.
