What's In A Name, Myth?

Toyota Fights Gay Porn Actor

Gay porn star Lexus claims he chose his moniker for the Greek god. Japan-based car company Toyota thinks otherwise – and they want sweet, litigious revenge:

The U.S. branch of the Japanese automaker recently sent a communiqué to Daniel Grangier, president and CEO of Switzerland-based Eboys Studios, regarding one of his stars, who goes by the screen name “Lexus.” (Lexus has appeared in such fine films as CumEater and SpunkLand.)

[Says] M. Eric T. Fingerhut, the Washington, D.C., attorney representing Toyota: “If Eboys Studio does not comply, “Toyota may have no choice but to take legal action in order to protect its trademark rights.”

Eboys president Daniel Grangier also promised to fight a legal battle, A judge would have to decide if such [a] trademark can prohibit us [from using] the name of a Greek god in our movies.”

Now, it’s been a while since we studied Greek mythology, but we don’t recall a “Lexus”. Nor can we find any example of said god online. Anyone out there got a clue, because it sounds like Lexus may need one…
