the thong remains the same

Beat it, The Godfather Part II. There's a new multi-part cinematic epic on the horizon, and this one shoots thunderbolts out its keister. We refer, of course, to Middle Tennessee filmmaker Glen Weiss' Thong Girl saga, which recently caused a commotion filming in Gallatin. Some locals reportedly didn't cotton to a few scenes being shot in Mayor Don Wright's office. (In five years, the room'll probably be a tourist attraction).

Thong Girl 3: Revenge of the Dark Widow stretches the saga of the femme superhero whose power resides in her panties, courtesy of what the Thong Girl site gingerly describes as a "butt laser." Weiss, best known as co-host of Ch. 19's popular talk show Two Guys Who Don't Know Crap About Movies, introduced the character as part of his locally shot comedy series Stubby's Place, which itself caused a minor stir over broadcast standards when aired on the WB affiliate Ch. 58. He built up quite the following for the original Thong Girl at local horror and comic-book conventions—helped considerably by Thong Girl's personal appearances.

On his blog, Weiss says he's grateful for the attention—which has spread to national blog coverage, TV interviews and even a mention on the Weekend Today Show. But he's sorry that the flap has become an issue in Mayor Wright's reelection year, he writes, since all the mayor did was give a break to a local indie filmmaker.

The latest Thong Girl—in which Thong Girl battles baddies trying to zap honky-tonkers into rappers—will contain no nudity, sex or explicit violence. That is regrettable. However, she will fire laser beams out her ass. For a taste of the Thong, check out the trailer for her previous adventure, Thong Girl 2: The Return of the Thong. And may the Floss be with you.
