Sydney, Apr 2 (ANI): A YouTube video has triggered an online furore as it shows a primary school production of the violent and expletive-ridden film Scarface.
The two-minute clip begins with an exchange between a pint-sized Tony Montana and his young wife, on a set that includes a toy tiger, inflatable palm trees and a table covered with popcorn, not cocaine.
"Can't you stop saying 'fudge' all the time? It's boring, Tony. You deal coke and you kill people. That's 'wonderful', Tony," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted the wife as telling him.
Montana responded: "I've got a fudging junkie for a wife."
"You son of a bee! I'm leaving you, motherfudger," she retorted.
The clip reaches its violent climax with a recreation of the final scene of Brian de Palma's 1983 gangster epic, where Montana, played by Al Pacino, falls face-first into a swimming pool after being shot.
In the new version, Montana falls into a paddling pool filled with paper after he is hit in the back by a foam toy gun.
Many viewers expressed outrage at the post, while others suspected the clip was not genuine.
Its creator, Marc Klasfeld, a commercial and music video director, told CNN that the video was aimed to illustrate the pervasiveness of sex and violence in the media confronting children daily.
"What's interesting to me and my wife is that the video is shocking, yet every day we have to guard what our children view from television commercials or video game violence," said Klasfeld, an admitted fan of viral videos. (ANI)
