The bosses of American Idol have leapt to action, after learning of a gay porn version of the talent search show.

The video, AMERICAN PORN STAR, is a "talent contest" which features three judges, and a "competition" involving hardcore gay sex.

The show is hosted by JASON SECHREST, who uses expressions and mannerisms similar to original Idol host Ryan Seacrest.

Seacrest says, "I had to legally go after someone who was doing an 'American Idol' porn. And I was host of the porn! And the guy's name was Seacrest, and he had blond spiky hair.

"The only difference was, instead of a microphone, he was holding something else."

Attorney SCOTT ZOLKE, who represents the show and Seacrest, says, "American Idol' has become an immensely popular television show. So the value of the American Idol look is something that we cannot allow to get tarnished."

Even before he saw the video, US TV show CELEBRITY JUSTICE reports that Zolke fired off a cease and desist letter to the producers, before meeting with the opposing side's attorney.

Zolke says that after the meeting, the producers of American Porn Star agreed to alter the movie to distance it from the original.
