The Smurfs

He played some­thing blue on the screen at his kid’s birth­day party, but it wasn’t The Smurfs.

Hav­ing rented a DVD of the partly ani­mated film from a Red­box kiosk to show over the week­end, the Tremon­ton, Utah dad briefly played a porno video for the young­sters instead, Police Chief Dave Nance said Monday.

He loaded The Smurfs into his lap­top, then turned on the device. For a moment, porno­graphic images were shown on a pro­jec­tion screen in view of the young par­ty­go­ers, Nance said.

Infor­ma­tion about how many chil­dren were at the party was unavail­able, and Dad’s name was not released.

The father got in touch with police Mon­day, alleg­ing that some­one had tam­pered with the Smurfs disc. But when police inspected the DVD, they found noth­ing odd about the disc. They believe that the porn prob­a­bly was on the lap­top in the first place.

Dad’s embar­rassed enough already, said Nance, and police don’t plan to seek crim­i­nal charges or inves­ti­gate fur­ther, because the inci­dent appears to have been a boo-boo. “He’s got some explain­ing to do (to the party kids and their par­ents),” he said.

On at least one other occa­sion in north­ern Utah, pornog­ra­phy showed up on a DVD meant for the younger set. In Decem­ber 2006, a 14-year-old Lay­ton boy found hard-core porn on a video game that he was given for Christmas.
