Dutch TV airs cannibalism segmentDecember 21st, 2011 - 10:56 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Amsterdam, Dec 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Dutch television network insists that cannibalism actually took place live on the network. BNN says when presenters Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno appeared on a live show eating each other’s flesh, it was real.
The show which is called Proefkonijnen (’Guinea Pigs’) sparked controversy after body parts from the two presenters were cooked and presented to each other. The parts were taken from the stomach and the buttocks.
A chef then fried the flesh in oil and later served it to the presenter. Each one was given the flesh of the other to eat. As bizarre as that sounds, the network insists that the footage was actually real and not a stunt.
The two presenters have kept silent about what they did on the screens insisting that there is nothing “special” about what happened.
In an interview with ABC News later, Storm told the network that, “it was weird to look into the eyes of a friend when you are chewing on his belly.”
The network says they do not expect to have any issues with the law because the two people involved were volunteers. The show was aired on Wednesday.
In the past, the network announced a show where kidney transplant patients would compete to have the organ. The contest was canceled after series of protests.
