Erin Andrews peephole video: have you looked? Would you?

I admit it. I looked. Not at the whole video, just a couple of screen caps. I felt bad about it, though. Sort of.

I looked. It was linked somewhere and I clicked on it. I had no idea who she even was.

I must be out of the loop and don't know what you are referring to. I don't dare google it at work...what is it?

Somebody took a video of Erin Andrews through the peephole of her hotel room. She is nude in the video. It was obviously an illegal act, but once it's on the internet it's on the internet. I think a lot of sites have been forced to take it down, but, as we know, you can always find it if you really want to.

I think they're still trying to figure out who took the video.

My question was about whether people have or would be willing to look at the pics, even though they were taken illegally and without her knowledge. The flip side of that is that she IS really hot.

ETA for those who don't know who Erin Andrews is, she's a very attractive ESPN sportscaster.

Who's Erin Andrews? he asked, not caring enough to google it.

See my edit above. A google image search on her name will yield rewarding, and mostly sfw results.

Everyone should be aware that the video is also being used as a malware-distribution lure. At least some of the sites hosting the video prompt you to install a "codec" to view the video. The "codec", naturally, is malware.

How do you take a video through a peephole? Don't they look out but not in? (Isn't that the point of a peephole?) Or did someone go to the trouble of drilling it out or something?

No, I wouldn't look. It is one thing to laugh at a celebrity caught in public flashing a boob or something, but in her private hotel room without her knowledge....how embarassing for her. That would be an awful thing to know someone did that to you and have the pictures floating around out there.

Apparently, this video had been floating around for months, but nobody really noticed it until ESPN sent a cease & desist letter to some website that was showing it.

I feel terrible for her.

There are actually cameras called reverse peephole cameras that enable you to look through from the opposite side and show you a clear image. I don't know if this is what was used on her, but it is certainly possible.

I haven't made any effort to see it, but have seen a second or two here and there, just because so many TV "news" shows are broadcasting the clip.

I understand why many men will want to see it. Hey, I'm as shallow as the next guy. I just wish the TV hosts showing it would ADMIT that they're just trying to appeal to prurient interest. What I can't stand is, say, Bill O'Reilly or the New York Post showing clips of Erin Andrews nude, and then PRETENDING to be morally outraged by the whole thing.

I always thought voyeurism was interesting from a moral perspective. I'm about as open minded as possible when it comes to other people's sexuality. Children and animals are not at all ok because it's inherently impossible for there to be mutual consent, but there are many other equally disgusting acts with which I have no problem as long as everyone involved is into it and hopefully I don't have to hear about the details.

Then you have this voyeuristic peeping Tom behavior which, on the one hand, literally every teenage boy in the universe engaged in to the best of his ability at least a few times and hardly shocks the conscience on a visceral level when compared to some of the weird shit people like. But on the other hand it's a huge invasion of privacy and would be very damaging for anyone. For me, I feel better about people watching violent or degrading or disgusting yet consensual and informed porn than watching a camera hidden in a Macy's changing room or some video of a sorority girl some ass posted online.

I've seen it. I found it on some site and took a look just to see what all the noise was about, not even knowing who she was. It's honestly difficult to tell that it's her. The video is pretty poor quality, and if there wasn't a famous person in it no one would care.

I heard about it on the news. I won't view the video but I'd like to see a cartoon recreation in stick figure form to know the technical side of it. Was it done using the fire detector?

I'm interested mostly in (1) how you take a video through a peephole and (2) how was it that she was naked in front of a peephole?

There is some speculation I have seen that she was aware of it when it was being taken.

Specifically, because she does this odd "shoving my butt out" thing while she's curling or brushing her hair. I've seen it, and it just looks... odd.

She is pretty hot though.

It's grainy. I didn't watch it until just now because I never knew who she was.

But yea, she's hot.

I don't really care, I mean so she was seen naked. It's not THAT big of a deal.

I think it's pretty clear that it was taken with a cell phone.

Can you expand upon this? I was a teenage boy once and I never did anything I'd consider to be peeping Tomish behavior.

Alright, now I'm more curious. What are the magic google words to get this?

Hotel rooms have also been known to have them installed backwards - I stayed at a very nice hotel in Manhattan in 1991 where the peephole was reversed. I had them fix it the next morning. No clue whether it was intentional or a screwup. I wouldn't put it past someone to deliberately switch the unit, in general or in "honor" of a specific client.

For anyone who wants it, there's so much deliberate amateur porn out there, and so many movies with beautiful actresses voluntarily taking off their clothes. There's no reason to go out and watch this illicit video.

I have the video off BT. You couldn't even tell it was her unless someone told you first. The video quality is really poor. ESPN and Andrews probably should have taken the stance that it's not her and sued to get her name taken off but not the video taken down. Would have made the video much less coveted if most people assumed it was a fake or an impostor.

I'm not sure if the video was taken through the peep hole or not, it certainly is filmed through a hole but you can't tell if it's one drilled in a wall or what. She's basically standing naked, curling her hair in front of the dressing table and mirror. She does a couple weird little isometric exercises and checks herself out in the mirror. Nothing too outlandish, basically just a chick with an epic body fixing her hair in a hotel room.

I had reservations downloading it and would never want anyone to make a penny off something this slimy and wrong, but it's still a knockout with a great body naked. I really like her as a sportscaster and reporter so hopefully this blows over and doesn't get in her way at all. ESPN ought to be taken out behind the woodshed for handling it so fucking poorly.

Except it's that same illicitness that makes it appealing to a lot of people.

I didn`t mean to suggest I or most boys would actually peep into a hotel room. But you never looked up a classmate's skirt if she wasn't being conscientious of what she was wearing?

I read about this the other day and went and took a look. Part of me agrees with the "this was staged" camp. The size of the hole in the wall looked to be fairly large...and as another poster mentioned, if she hadn't confirmed that it was her, you wouldn't have been able to tell. The quality was really crappy. She could have just denied it and nobody would have been able to prove that it was her.

Yeah, sounds like a publicity stunt to me. I've never heard of the girl and never in my life would have if it had not been for this thread that directed me to the "controversy".

No idea who she is, but when I saw a story about it in the media I checked out some screen caps. Didn't see the whole video but that was because I was at work and it didn't look that interesting, not because of morale.

She is very well known among sports fans. It would be much simpler to do a Maxim or Playboy spread. She would have no trouble getting either.

This is terrible and I'm upset that so many people would want to invade the privacy of a person inside their own hotel room.

In fact, I am so outraged I would like to view this personally just to see the kind of filth that we as a society are up against. Does anyone have a link?

This is simply bullshit. There is no way that this is a publicity stunt. She's not some celebutant or wanna be actress. This can do nothing but hurt her career with a DISNEY company and there isn;t another competitor out there for her to go to.

I suspect the "large hole" appearance is an artifact of some video processing to magnify the image or correct the image from looking through a peephole the wrong direction.

So you're arguing that she could take a huge pay cut and move form the preeminent worldwide sports network to a failing US competitor? Really? Those options somehow would improve her situation? ESPN, for better or worse, has no peers.

I'll watch it, but I will never distribute it or help anyone to see it. I won't even share it via BT. Sorry, maybe I'm splitting hairs but that would make me no less slimy than the guy filming it.

Why do you assume she would take a huge pay cut? As we now can see, she is very popular. Last time I checked FOX, NBC and CBS have the NFL so I doubt they are paying their guys $10 / hour. CBS has college basketball and SEC sports. I'm sure she wouldn't mind doing NFL games or college games.

I haven't seen it and won't search it out. There's enough porn out there that I don't need to see a bad video of a woman taken without her consent. If I accidentally stumble upon it I won't turn away or anything, but I'm not going to go out of my way to find it.

Are you really making the case that a move to any of those networks is a step up from ESPN? ESPN has been poaching talent from those guys for a decade and those guys have sports on one or two days a week for about 6 months a year. ESPN is 24/7/365. It's not even a rational argument to think she could use this to go up somehow. She has the dream job already.

"it's" just a piece of ass, right? I guess it doesn't matter that she didn't consent to people watching her when she had every expectation of privacy as long as they don't make money off it, right? She probably owes everyone a look and a wank because she's such a knockout, right?

Would people watching a similar video of your daughter or someone else you love be ok as long as others who download it have similar reservations and don't make money off it?

Sorry, but watching it makes you just as slimy. It's her body and her choice alone as to who she shows it to. And she didn't choose you or anyone else who watched that video.

Shame on you.
