Two years ago a Facebook page parodying Home and Away character ‘Alf Stewart’ attracted attention for its explicit content, including references to an “Alf Stewart Rape Dungeon.”
Now the YouTube videos which revoice actors including Gold Logie winner Ray Meagher, are set to screen at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville as part of the Sydney Underground Film Festival.
Summer Bay Slaughter Part 1, The Dungeon and Alf Stewart at the Logies, both of which went viral on YouTube will screen on September 8th.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports the videos’ creator, ‘Mr Doodleburger’, will also appear at the festival, answering questions from the audience.
It’s unclear whether the videos breach any defamation law given they would likely fall under allowances for satire, and indeed whether they are parodying the TV show and characters rather than actors including Ray Meagher -or both.
SMH reports the Seven Network and Meagher both declined to comment.
