Bangkok, Thailand - Sources reveal that David Carradine's alleged death by auto-erotic asphyxiation was actually an audition for a new celebrity reality t.v. show to be sponsored by a leading sexual performance drug manufacturer.
The series, tentatively titled 'Bashing The Bishop', invited prospective celebrities to make and post youtube videos of themselves "..in their most creative and demeaningly personal moments," for a spot on the series.
Series producer, Joshua Schadenfreude, stated that if Mr. Carradine had survived the escapade, "...he definitely would have been in the top 5 entries." which would have given him a role in the series and a chance at the grand prize.
Said Josh, "Actually when you think of it, performing autoerotic asphyxiation in a city called Bangkok is really quite ingenious, almost worthy of a Broadway play being developed about it and then a, perhaps a lengthy run in Vegas."
Sasha Baron Cohen, comedy prankster and public nuisance, was touted as a lead candidate in the role of master of ceremonies.
News of Carradine's death has put the series on 'indefinite hiatus' as the lead sponsor, Biagra, has suddenly 'pulled out'.
