Al Gore, So Horny, So Angry

From the folks that brought the http://kotaku.com/5551651/molester-monk-lured-boys-with-his-wii">Wii molester "monk" and the Tiger Woods brouhaha to life with the magic of computer animation comes this: an Al Gore avatar trying to get some lady to grab his junk. Technology!

A licensed massage therapist filed a police report in December 2006 after an alleged incident took place in an upscale Portland hotel. The case was closed in 2007 after the therapist canceled meetings with the police on three occasions and her attorney said the matter would be handled civilly — i.e., for cash.

Sister site Gawker.com has a lengthy run-down of the events that the therapist claim to have happened, complete with those kooky avatars that look like they're from The Sims.

Fire up the clip and watch the pictures as they roll through the air or check out this one to see how these animations are made.

Al Gore as a randy computer avatar = the future of news? [io9]

    This computer generated 're-enactment' is creepy and surreal as hell. The production values are even worse than the Today Tonight ones.

    The cartoonish animation and avatars (doesn't look like Al Gore at all) isn't going to help their case one bit.

    It's worth pointing out that the events described in all likelihood didn't happen - the woman in question changed the details of her story (like whether Gore's pants were on or off) repeatedly, then failed to show up to several different meetings with the Police, after which they closed the case without charge. She has not brought a civil suit against Gore either, despite having had 4 years to do so. What she HAS done is sell her story to the National Enquirer for a profit. I'm certainly not a fan of sexual assault, but nor am I a fan of making false allegations.

    But hey, mud sticks, right?

    I'm certainly not blaming you, Brian, I appreciate that your point was to highlight wacky asian news re-enactments, not get into details of guilt or innocence. I was just a little surprised to see this bit of trash that's been floating around the blogosphere for a week or so washed up on Kotaku's shores...
