Vincent Gallo: Try Google Checkout

Paypal suspended Vincent Gallo’s account after he put his sperm up for auction ($50,000). For an additional $500,000, Gallo said he would inseminate in-utero.

“They are really fascists. They should breathe some death gas or something,” said Gallo, a filmmaker famous for having Chloe Sevigny suck a prosthetic representation of his penis in the misogynistic thrill-ride, Brown Bunny.

Paypal said Gallo violated its, “policy against facilitating meetings for sexually oriented activities.”

Vincent, baby, Mr. Brown Bunny… now’s a great time to switch to Google Checkout. Consider becoming an official merchant partner, and offer Google Checkout customers $20 off. — BEN POPKEN

    was it? from what I had heard at the time of it’s release from both her and him, it was a real blowjob.

  2. AcilletaM says:

    That’s what they said at the time of release and then later on the story changed to the prosthetic.

  3. Sir Winston Thriller says:

    Is anything about Mister Gallo real?

  4. Hawkins says:

    Ah, the Brown Bunny. Such genius.

    From the Wikipedia entry:

    Roger Ebert [called Brown Bunny] the worst film in the history of Cannes, and Gallo retorting by calling Ebert a “fat pig with the physique of a slave trader.” Ebert then responded, paraphrasing a statement once made by Winston Churchill that “one day I will be thin, but Vincent Gallo will always be the director of The Brown Bunny.” Gallo then claimed to have put a hex on Ebert’s colon, cursing the critic with cancer. Roger Ebert then replied that enduring his colonoscopy would be more entertaining than watching The Brown Bunny.

    Vincent Gallo’s genetic material seems like a bargain at these prices.

  5. AcilletaM says:

    My respect for Ebert just went up.

  6. Deryn says:

    Well, get ready for it to go back down, kind of like Chloe Sevigny:

    From the same Wiki entry:

    “…on the August 28, 2004 episode of Ebert & Roeper, Roger Ebert gave the new version of the film a thumbs-up. In a column published at about the same time, Ebert reported that he and Gallo had made peace.”

  7. RumorsDaily says:

    I thought it was real too… where did the prosthetic story come from?

  8. JT says:

    “What is this? Is this a [i]shifter[/i] car?!? I can’t drive this.”

    “I drive a Cadillac. … The car, it shifts its self.”

    That guy cracks me up.


    The above is from Buffalo 66

  9. Antediluvian says:

    I think you probably mean in utero, not in vitro. In vitro means in glass, while in utero doesn’t.

    But to be fair, I don’t know what Gallo’s offer actually was. Perhaps he’s a fertility clinic worker and was offering to do that actual in vitro fertilizing.

  10. NeonCat says:

    People who misuse “fascist” should be rounded up into camps and shot.

    Or at least beaten with Wal-mart Nazi t-shirts.

  11. WalkenTall says:

    Did any of you actually see Brown Bunny? It’s horribly slow; there are long stretches when the only thing that happens is Vincent Gallo driving. I loved Buffalo 66, but Gallo has gone off the deep end. And it wasn’t a prosthetic; it was a stunt c0ck.
