Title anything with the words Sex Tape and such as video is bound to be viral on YouTube and other video sharing sites. That was what actress Alyssa Milano did to create public awareness on the ongoing Syrian crisis.
The first part of the 2-minute, 19-second video appears to confirm that viewers would have a fun time watching the former child star's romp in bed with her hunky boyfriend.
After teasing views were a brief glimpse into her boyfriend's near naked body, close up shots of Alyssa's cleavage and a dimly lit room indicating a visual feast, Alyssa turns the camera to the TV set on the wall which features a male newscaster discussing the issue in Syria.
Beside the TV set is a mirror which indicates some action going on between Alyssa and her boyfriend.
The video, posted only on Friday, has become viral with more than 65,000 views.
"I just thought it was really smart way to make a statement about where we are socially in this country, how people are more likely to click to alint that says 'sex tape' than legitimate news," E! News quoted Milano.
Now, for the real news, here is a video clip about UN inspectors leaving Syria, opening the window for a U.S. attack on Damascus.
U.S. President Barack Obama has returned to the U.S. after attending the G20 summit in St Peterburg that failed to come up with an international agreement on pursuing military action in Syria.
That means Mr Obama will attempt to convince again the U.S. Congress to authorise military action as a response to President Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. The president will likewise seek public support on military action when he makes an address from the White House on Tuesday.
