Intentionally leaked material racier than film
Those racy “Knocked Up” scenes knocking around the ‘Net before the pic’s June 1 bow weren’t pirated from the cutting-room floor. Universal intentionally seeded YouTube with bawdy bonus material as part of its viral marketing campaign.In one deleted scene, Jonah Hill‘s character rants about the lack of graphic sex scenes in “Brokeback Mountain” — another U release — to the bemusement of Katherine Heigl‘s Allison. She asks him whether he’s gay, prompting him to recount a homoerotic experience, then protest, “But I didn’t dig it.” In another, Allison’s OB/GYN goes on a rant of his own about the state of her cervix, comparing it to a ripe peach. U insisted that it placed age restrictions on the clips, which top the R-rated movie in raunchiness, but a rep acknowledged the difficulty maintaining those restrictions on YouTube, where members cut and paste content at will.
