'Pearl Harbor' Video From Malaysia Isn't What It Seems

A pirated video copy of Pearl Harbor is for sale on the streets of Malaysia. The rip-off contains the first five minutes of the feature film but after that, the movie turns a little steamy. The remaining video contained on the VCD (video compact disc, payable on most home computers and some DVD players) is nothing but a pornographic movie.
Officials in Malaysia are seizing copies of the Pearl Harbor VCD. Malaysia is a long-standing hot bed for pirated movies. Another porn movie is also being passed of as another summer blockbuster, The Mummy Returns.
I guess the phrase 'you can't judge a book by its cover' also applies to VCDs.
