Ah, to be a horny moviegoer in the 1970s. It was the era of high-end, widely watched pornographic features like Deep Throat, The Opening of Misty Beethoven, and Behind the Green Door. Sure, the flicks were obscene, but there was something so damn charming about them. Sadly, today’s pornography is all gonzo nonsense, but the tradition of carefully crafted sex appeal lives on in the Magic Mike series, whose latest installment, Magic Mike XXL, grinds into theaters this week. For the inaugural episode of our new “Vulture Remix” series (tune in every Monday!), video artist Louis Plamondon, a.k.a. Sleepy Skunk, has put together this loving reimagining of the Magic Mike XXL trailer as though it were being released to a seedy theater near you in 1976 or so. It’s technically SFW, but be careful — you might blush.
