In the interview, Franco claims he had no idea that now-notorious cooking video was quite so… revealing.

Meanwhile, Paper also produced a terrifying experimental something-or-other that’s going for a Vic Berger-type effect.

It stars Noriega in a Speedo and features him gleefully marauding a bunch of fruit, none of which ever stood a chance. Was it produced by bulimics?
