The Newest Japanese Sensation -- and this time it's not a Paris Hilton handbag
By Courtney Nichols
Long-island bisexual porn icon, Billy Herrington, has become a Japanese wet dream…and not because of his thrusts or groans. An Internet mash-up superstar, over 3000 video responses have been filmed in reaction to Workout, a film of Billy's posted by Nico Nico Douga, a Japanese video sharing website, nearly two years ago. Many of the civilian videotaped reactions utilize deliberate dialogue misinterpretations and are often tagged “Forest Fairy” and “Philosophy.”
Nico Nico Douga and Garage Kit manufacturers Figma and Good Smile Company invited Billy to Japan for the first time since his sudden success. A guest on an online talk show, Billy’s flexed pecks and abnormally small head created a Lost In Translation montage in which awkward giggles are interrupted by Billy grunting American phrases such as “You got me mad now!” When asked if the hosts could touch his "breasts," Billy quickly obliges and lifts his shirt for a quick and sweet caress.
Also announced during his visit is the release of a limited edition Billy Herrington action figure in July 2009 for the Japanese market. Having starred in the Lars von Trier produced HotMen CoolBoyz, (the only gay hardcore pornographic film ever funded by an established mainstream film company), Billy Herrington's career has been anything but typical. Therefore, upon discovering he is the reason for seizure-inducing parodies across the island of Japan he simply stroked his biceps and went about his day.
