If you add up the claims of its several distributors (MPI, MVP, and NetFlix), the quickie videos of President Clinton’s grand-jury testimony sold about 165,000 copies in the three months before the congressional endgame began, almost all those sales coming in the first two weeks, before public disgust solidified. Any misgivings about their part in history? MVP sales director Darryl Kanouse thinks not. ”We’ve done a tape on Ginger Spice’s nude-modeling career,” he notes. ”Controversy? Bring it on.”
