Film to Be Distributed by Mass Hysteria Entertainment Subject of International Press Frenzy

Pauly Shore's Meltdown on Set Covered by CNN, TMZ, Movieset.com and AOL

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - An independent comedy with a working title of "Brand Dead" featuring Patrick Cavanaugh, Pauly Shore, Phil Morris and Leslie Nielsen, which wrapped production just a few weeks ago, was the subject of international paparazzi and entertainment based television shows and websites just this past week. The producer of the film, BD Garden Company, and Mass Hysteria have agreed in principle for Mass Hysteria Entertainment to distribute the comedy worldwide. It is currently being edited in Hollywood.

Actor Pauly Shore's on-set tirade was broadcasted on multiple news stations, including TMZ, TMZ.com, AOL, CNN and Movieset.com, among others. There was debate and voting by the public as to whether the tirade was in fact staged. Hundreds of thousands of voters participated, a coup to the small budget comedy.

"Surprised would be an understatement," says CEO of Mass Hysteria Entertainment Daniel Grodnik of the press coverage received over the past week. "This is a funny picture, but this kind of publicity is rarely seen in the small budget comedy genre. We look forward to closing the deal and distributing the movie."
