Anger Rises In Truckee After MTV Stunt

March 16th, 2010 by

TRUCKEE, Calif. (CBS13) ― A shoot for an MTV show stunned the town of Truckee after residents witnessed costumed men dancing around a giant snow sculpture shaped as a phallus, according to residents.

The Sierra Sun, a Truckee-based newspaper, said authorities began fielding calls from shocked locals after an MTV production crew constructed a snow penis in front of the downtown Truckee train depot.

Camera crews were filming “grown men wearing fur” who danced around the sculpture, which was shooting white fluid into the air, according to residents who e-mailed the Sierra Sun.

Truckee officials said only allowed the filming because MTV assured them the display would not be distasteful or graphic. The sculpture was covered before it was finished and was taken down at officials’ request.

Officials plan to ask MTV to refrain from airing the stunt or at least obscure anything that would identify the town.
