If you haven't already heard of the Queens mother who purchased a 'Dora the Explorer' DVD but got 'Bubble Butt Bonanza No. 17' instead, well now you have. Candice Conner bought this "Dora Pr0n" at the Toys-R-Us in Valley Stream, Long Island and claims that she still has the $12.99 receipt along with the original packaging.
When I first read this story, the question that popped into my head was: didn't Ms. Conner look at the cover of the DVD she was purchasing? According to ABC news, Conner said "I would never in a million years think that Toys R Us would have registered trademark bootleg in their store." Last time I checked, the cover of a bootleg...looked like a bootleg! When I think of a bootleg cover, I think of the 2 Xtreme game for Playstation 1 because of how bad the graphics were. The screenshots on the back were so terrible that it really could have been a bootleg.
Do the covers of new bootlegs look like someone actually made an effort? I highly doubt it, but hey, I could be wrong. It just doesn't make sense that out of all the 'Dora the Explorer' Nickelodeon DVDs, Conner picked the most suspect-looking one. I forgot to mention that according to the Daily News' reporting, Conner used to work at a different Toys-R-Us. Interesting.
She told the Daily News that she "wants apologies all around" and that "it's not about the money." Maybe she really is being sincere but either way you look at it, its an unfortunate situation for her sons, Logan, 3, and Nigel, 11 who were exposed to the pr0nographic video. According to the Daily News, Nigel said "I saw a Caucasian lady and man and they were naked. I was surprised. I was very disgusted."
Yes little Nigel, I would be disgusted as well although I'm curious to know why you specifically mentioned a "Caucasian lady and man". Perhaps because the title is "Bubble Butt Bonanza"? Speaking of the title, I wonder how many of you are going to Google it now. Bubble Butt Bonanza galore!
Do you think that Conner was up to no good when she purchased this DVD? Do you know of any children who have been exposed to said material accidentally (including yourself)? What should be done in situations like these?
