London, July 10 : Executives at Vivid Video are more than happy to announce that rock icon Jimi Hendrix's heirs have failed to disprove the authenticity of his sex tapes.
The company had made a 100,000-dollar "good faith offer" to Experience Hendrix, LLC if it could establish within 60 days that the film is bogus.
The executives at Vivid said that they were confident about the authenticity of the film.
"We always knew it was real and were confident that the Hendrix heirs would be unable to substantiate their claims," British tabloid The Sun quoted Steven Hirsch, Vivid co-chairman, as saying.
The film is said to feature Hendrix getting it on with uber-groupies Pamela Des Barres and Cynthia Albritton.
Coincidentally, Albritton will be taking a cut of profits from the 39.9ollar video.
Yet strangely, she did not say that she remembered making the tape.
She did point out that even Hendrix's ex-girlfriend Kathy Etchingham said that he was a sex tape pioneer.
"He went really crazy about cine-filming," Etchingham told Hendrix pal Curtis Knight.
