The makers of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream preach peace and love — but they draw the line at hardcore porn.
The socially conscious Vermont company is suing a California smut peddler that blatantly ripped off its logo for X-rated DVDs.
The 10 titles in the so-called “Ben & Cherry’s” series — which sold online by Rodax Video — play on the cute names on tubs of ice cream.
Ben & Jerry’s staple Cherry Garcia became “Hairy Garcia,” and Boston Cream Pie became “Boston Cream Thigh.”
A DVD called “Americone Cream” — a takeoff on Americone Dream, which was inspired by Stephen Colbert — promises “a delicious mix of hot American gay men.”
An unprintable title drawn from the flavor Banana Split features two bare-chested women on the cover.
A lawsuit filed Wednesday in Manhattan Federal Court demands the porn be taken off the market and seeks unspecified damages.
