Video: Ron Jeremy Reenacts 'Wrecking Ball' In Tighty Whities
What is it that's so irresistible about watching a hairy dude recreate Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball"?
Porn legend Ron Jeremy really works the camera in a shot-for-shot remake of "Wrecking Ball": he writhes on the ground, licks a sledgehammer, shakes his balding mane and sings as best he can (I love how he sings "you wreck-eck-ecked me").
Jeremy wears tighty-whities and a ripped undershirt that doesn't leave much to the imagination (not that we've ever had to with Jeremy). He opts for some flesh-colored underwear instead of going completely nude like Miley. He looks every year of his 60 years old, and we can't help but be impressed given that it sounded like he was on death's door just a year ago. I'm guessing no one is going to call him out for prostituting his body.
If this version seems restrained (for Jeremy, at least), you can watch the behind-the-scenes version where he makes wrecking ball testicle jokes and raps "Baby Got Back" just about as well as he sings.
