Tino gets ready for his close-up
Call it a desperate publicity stunt if you will, but one Colombian porn company have written an open letter to Faustino Asprilla to offer him a role in one of their films, claiming that “with a bit of training” he could be up to scratch in no time.
Adult entertainment company Santa Latina have offered Asprilla, now aged 43, a one-week contract worth 20million Colombian pesos (approx. £6,500) which will see the gangly ex-Newcastle and Parma forward (who is famed for his, shall we say “flamboyant” lifestyle in his native land) contracted to “perform” in his very own XXX movie.
According to the Daily Mail, the letter reads as follows…
“Dear Faustino Asprilla,
“For years we have followed your successful career, which has made you a national icon invaluable in Colombia.
“We are convinced that the lifestyle you lead and the media controversy it causes is vital so we dared to make the following proposal.
“As you know, Santa Latina is an adult entertainment site, and that’s why we offer you 20 million pesos for a week as a porn actor.
“This is a unique offering, which awaits your prompt response. We are convinced that with a little training you could exploit another talent all of Colombia knows you have.”
So far, no answer has been forthcoming, not that our Tino is a prude or anything – nor, indeed, is he a stranger to appearing nude on camera, as this wonderfully evocative photograph duly proves…
Believe us, there’s a heck of a lot more where that came from but we can’t…we just…can’t.
