Mizuguchi on Ulala's filthy pics

Says Sonic porn is 'bad idea.'

Space Channel 5 creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi has revealed what he thinks of those pictures of the game's heroine, Ulala.

Don't know what we're talking about? Well, to cut a long story short: Japanese lady dressed as Ulala meets man painted blue. She does various things with/to him, looking like she's not really enjoying it in all honesty, and someone films it and puts it on the Internet.

And then, according to ace website Kotaku, Ulala's Dad sits down and watches it with all his mates.

"Yeah, we found that on the Internet," Mizuguchi told Kotaku.

"We then watched the video in the company. We were like, 'Wow, let's see that. Wow.'"

When asked if he was upset by the appropriation of Ulala for pornographic means, Mizuguchi replied: "No. We were, 'Yeah!' We don't care about that.

"Because, I don't know, maybe Sega called them, I don't know," he added cryptically, before confirming that personally, he couldn't give a flying one.

"I don't care. This is a porno video. Ulala is not Sonic. She's cute and a little bit sexy. So that's okay."

A porno video starring Sonic the Hedgehog, Mizuguchi agreed, would be "A bad idea."
