BMX Biker Sues Over Skin Game

Pro biker Dave Mirra is seeking more than $20 million in damages from Acclaim over disputed game “BMX XXX”:

    “BMX XXX” uses the tagline “Keep it Dirty” and features copulating pink poodles, shots of strippers in action and a variety of racing bike stunts.

    ….In the suit, Mirra said he and Acclaim entered discussions in March 2002 about attaching his name to “BMX XXX,” which he claimed was described as a mature, tongue-in-cheek game in the vein of spoof films like “Airplane.”

    But Mirra alleged the game’s focus was changed after he signed an agreement to lend his name to it.

    “During the ongoing development of (XXX), but after obtaining Dave Mirra’s approval of the initial concept, Acclaim changed the concept of the game to become more sexually explicit and pornographic, ultimately settling on nudity as a major selling point,” the suit said. [Reuters]

For whatever it’s worth, a search in Amazon under “Dave Mirra” did not turn up the game.
