Chuck Berry

Wikipedia, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Way #1***:
In 1990 [Chuck] Berry was sued by several women who claimed that he had installed a video camera in the ladies' bathrooms at two of his St. Louis restaurants. A class action settlement was eventually reached with 59 women on the complaint. Berry's biographer, Bruce Pegg, estimated that it cost Berry over $1.2 million plus legal fees. A Miami purveyor of celebrity sex videos is currently marketing video footage purporting to show Berry urinating on a young woman in a bathtub. Although the voice sounds similar to Berry's his face is never visible on the tape, making positive identification impossible.
What I want to know is, to whom is this video being marketed? The weird Venn diagram overlap of sexual deviants and 50's rock 'n' roll enthusiasts? I dunno man.

Other relevant questions: How long is this video? How much does it cost? Is the soundtrack made up of Chuck Berry songs? I would hope that there is more to the tape than a 30 second excretion; that's not worth the $29.99 I just paid.
