Animated Courtney Cox Dishes on Celebrities in 'Dirt' Promos


To help kick of Courtney's Cox' second season of Dirt on FX, recently launched design and production company Arsenal created six animated "vignettes of Hollywood stars and celebutaunts caught in the act of wild, unbecoming behavior." Each vignette is finished off with witty commentary from Courtney Cox.

There's the all too common crotch shot, the mug shot, the booty shot, the herpes/STD/overdose and more. All six do a nice job capturing Hollywood', as it were.

Done as cartoons rather than quick shots of actual celebrity screw ups, it's actually far more engaging while, at the same time, distancing the show from becoming as sleazy as the news the show covers. And even while hurling a cavalcade of wink/nod gossip, it's done in a way that's, well, almost nice to the celebrities involved. After all, they're human beings too just like you and me.

Nice work. We might actually have to watch the show now.

Yes, these promos are interesting, fresh and well put together. Hopefully season 2 will be better than 1. Season 1 was pretty clunky.

The promos do their job... make you want to tune in. The perfect mix of sex, celeb, gossip, and great animation.
