Undeterred, Apatow kept the penis footage in the film–and then made a “c**kumentary” about shooting the scene, which will appear on the DVD.
He says, “The original shot was way longer, where the penis is in close-up, and then one night we showed it to a test audience and 22 people walked out. I think we went too far with too much penis.
“We went with different angles to make sure there weren’t too much testicles being shown… America fears the penis and that’s something I’m going to help them get over.
“I’m gonna get a penis in every movie I do from now on. When this writers strike ends, that is my dream. It really makes me laugh in this day and age, with how psychotic our world is, that anyone is troubled by seeing any part of the human body; that is amusing to me.”
