Wedding Video satire of Real World featuring cast members on DVD today.
A parody of The Real World written and directed by Norman Korpi, a cast member from the first season of the show, is on DVD today. The Wedding Video follows co-writer and director Clint Cowen’s efforts to document Norman’s fictional wedding, which is attended by Norman’s friends, many of whom aren’t even aware he’s getting married to a man. The cast features nine other former Real World cast members who play themselves, or parodies of themselves, as they never mention the show. But they play up their personas and mock themselves and the show at the same time.
