(LOS ANGELES – February 10, 2015) – Superstar in the making Mercedes Carrera was featured in a new video from Funny Or Die, Priest At The Porn Awards . The short, which was filmed during the 2015 Adult Entertainment Expo, shows what happens when a Christian TV crew attends the porn show to speak with performers and fans.
The video marked Carrera’s second appearance on Funny or Die; in November she helped explain Net Neutrality in a comic viral video for the site.
On Monday, OC Weekly, Orange County California’s largest Alternative News Weekly, ran a feature story on Mercedes covering her pre-porn accomplishments as an aerospace engineer, as well as her new porn-funded STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) scholarship program. Mercedes raised over $11,000 for the scholarships in January thanks to a live cam show with four other performers.
This week Mercedes appears in three new movies.
First is Filth for Evil Angel. “Filth was the first boy/girl I shot with Manuel Ferrara, and it was created for his own production house,” Mercedes said. “He shot it mostly POV style and it was a very hot, raw scene. The energy on the scene is great, and of course Manuel is always a star performer. It’s a real privilege and honor to get to work with him”.
RegardingYour Mom Tossed My Salad 15 from Lethal Hardcore, Mercedes said “Paisley Parker and I had a ball ‘corrupting’ Stoney Curtis. My out of control ‘Step-daughter’ (Parker) is in trouble with the school, so I provide a little help *wink wink* by convincing the anal school administrator (Curtis) to grant her admission. Like a good little pervert admin he wants his salad tossed, which Paisley and I are happy to do. It was a fun scene all around to produce and I do love tossing salad!”
Lastly, Mercedes performs a killer lesbo scene with superstar Chanel Preston in Girlfriends Films’ Cheer Squad Sleepovers Episode 12. “It was amazing working with a professional like Chanel. She taught me a lot and I picked up some new tricks” said Carrera.
