Titan Parodies Presidential Campaign to Promote Upcoming Film

LOS ANGELES—As 2016 gets underway, Americans are starting to get serious in deciding who they want to lead the nation…Clinton, Trump, Cauke. Wait…who?! Mike Cauke, a late entry into the already crowded Republican race. The current junior senator has humble middle-class roots and hails from Cumming, Iowa. The young conservative was a tight end on his college football team, and loves sports, staying fit and “anything to do with balls or bats.” (Move over, Paul Ryan…) At least, that’s what TitanMen has carefully crafted with an aggressive publicity campaign to tout its February release, Cauke for President—cleverly planned to coincide with the Iowa Caucus. Vice President Keith Webb notes the idea was loosely based on the scandal surrounding former Congressmen Aaron Schock, a conservative who resigned last year amid an ethics investigation (while his sexuality was often questioned by many, as far as we know he’s still a sexy single straight man).  “We wanted to show, and skewer, the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who are vehemently anti-gay, while at the same time often sucking cock behind closed doors,” says Webb. “There are several very highly placed politicians that are known in the gay community to be in the closet. While we respect people’s privacy about coming out on their own terms, when they vote against gay rights then they become fair game. You can’t be a closeted gay man and then vote against gay people as a cover to hide behind. I mean, come on…Schock is hot as hell, not married, loves fashion and redecorated his congressional office like Downtown Abbey!” The lead role of the senator is TitanMen’s newest exclusive performer, Matthew Bosch, who makes his porn debut in the film. “We felt it was important to cast an unknown and new performer in the role so that there was no preconceived ideas about him,” says Webb. “We wanted a fresh face in the role of the senator so that he would be a blank slate.” The film also stars Dallas Steele as his chief of staff, who is in a secret relationship with the senator. David Benjamin makes his TitanMen debut as Sen. Cauke’s campaign manager, someone willing to do just about anything to win. The film also has Luke Adams as a volunteer coordinator, who goes door to door campaigning and doing whatever it takes to get that vote. The cast is rounded out by TitanMen exclusive Nick Prescott as the senator’s online hookup, who secretly makes a sex tape of the two; big-dicked Tex Davidson as the political reporter who has the secret tape; and Adam Ramzi, who makes Adams earn his vote. “We felt it was important to build the marketing campaign into the movie from its conception. Too often, the marketing comes after the movie; but to have an effective marketing campaign, you have to plan it as part of the movie,” says Webb. “We partnered with LGBT political blogger JoeMyGod and political reporter Matt Baume, both of whom appear in the movie and throughout the marketing. We felt it was important to partner with more mainstream political players to help us cross over into a wider audience.” The efforts include a faux website (Cauke2016.com, which also includes a store where fans can buy shirts, buttons, mugs and more), along with a Twitter and Instagram account (mikecauke). “We also brought in the concept of product placement, but in a new way, by including some of our top affiliate partners and their sites. We knew the senator was going to use a dating/hookup site, so why not make that site our biggest dating site affiliate Manhunt? The senator’s sex tape had to go viral online, so why make have it go viral on our largest tube site affiliate, Pornhub.com? It just seemed like a great way to create synergy amongst our top affiliate partners and get cross-marketing across multiple venues."  The efforts inject new blood into the studio as it enters its 20th year, harking to the heyday of gay porn and giving TitanMen “our big slap-our-dick-on-the-table ‘We’re back bitches!’ movie for 2016.” “Let’s be honest: After making movie #572, things can get into a bit of a rut,” says Webb. “We are trying to shake things up and make content that is different and unique. We need to give consumers a reason to buy, and slapping out another dick-in-a-hole scene after scene is not going to do that. If we are not excited about our content, how can we expect the consumer to be excited? We are loving what we are doing, and we are having a blast doing it….and the reaction so far has been amazing! People are really getting into the concepts and are loving our first new releases Like Father, Like Son, Jailbreak and Icons. We just had the best holiday sales we’ve had in three years.” And who knows…maybe the faux candidate may actually get some real votes? “If this election season wasn’t so ridiculous, I would want to cry! We have truly entered into the reality TV version of a presidential race; you couldn’t write this sort of stuff,” says Webb. “While porn has a history of shinning a light back onto society as a whole, we walk a fine line as we don’t want to cross over into comedy. We want to shine a light, but we don’t want it to turn into traditional parody as we know it. We want to tell a story and engage, but we don’t want to go for cheap slapstick jokes or comedy. I think we’ve found a good balance that will entrain and keep your dick hard at the same time.”
