Bikini Bandits in the Inquirer
Fun-raiser scouts talent for a movie about girls, girls, girls.
Bikini Bandits is a series of short, highly suggestive, Tarantino-esque films made by the people from Gyro advertising, wherein a quartet of bikini-clad babes knock over convenience stores and mete out rough justice with only their nubile charms and small arsenal of automatic weaponry (you can see them at www.atomfilms.com).
"The idea came to me and my brother when we were bored out of our minds on a family vacation and we thought about making a film that has all the things we love: girls, guns, hot rods and meat sticks," says Steve Grasse, the 36-year-old enfant terrible behind Gyro.
Given the popularity of these films, plans are in place to turn them into a major motion picture with the working title of The Bikini Bandits Save Christmas...The first audition/party was held recently at Shampoo, and it was like all things Gyro, a collision of high-and low-brow, the reactionary and the radical. Hopefuls shook their aspirations on a makeshift cat-walk to the funk-soul-brother sounds of DJ Gregg Foreman. Revelers drank 40s of Colt 45 out of brown paper bags bearing the Bikini Bandit logo.
"We're going to do this all over the country; we literally need hundreds of girls," says Grasse. "It's going to be the film with the most girls ever."
