Remember Chris Crocker? The “Leave Britney Alone!” guy? The guy who got 44 million people to watch him hide underneath a blanket and wax emotional about Britney Spears’ custody battle and Perez Hilton’s journalistic ethics?

He’s back. And he’s doing gay porn.

First, we should make clear that Chris Crocker never really went away. After the 2007 meltdown, he actually became quite the consistent character on YouTube. Today his channel boasts more than 358,000 subscribers, and his videos, which are usually personal vlogs that involve his mother or friends driving around Los Angeles, will generally attract around 35,000 views each time. He also released a documentary, Me @ the Zoo, which was picked up by HBO.

But the porn! I mean, talk about getting your name back in the news cycle.

According to a report on gay gossip site Queerty, Crocker has filmed a scene with his ex-boyfriend for a website called The Maverick Men, which is apparently a “bareback site,” though I made no effort to conclude that on my own.

The report has it that Crocker and old beau Justin Goble will release their scene on Oct. 4. An X-rated trailer is currently available on the site. (Again, unconfirmed.)

Crocker wrote about his decision to delve into porn this summer in a Tumblr post, “This will be my only explanation on this matter, so LISTEN up or shut up.”

“The mere NOTION that someone can be intelligent, talented, and do porn on the side is jarring and impossible to most,” he wrote.

“Don’t get me wrong: I am not painting an impossibly pretty picture for the sake of changing anyone’s minds. It IS difficult. I have to wonder about an array of things it will interfere with.”

Crocker then discussed the effect his presence in porn will have on his relationships, his career (which he describes as “exhibitionist”), family (whom he describes as “very conservative”), and sex life (which he loosely and confidently describes as “my only talent”).

He closed the post with a kicker for the ages.

“What is porn anyway?” he asked. “Is it doing a shameful, crass act on camera… because if so, I screwed myself on camera years ago.”

He’s talking about “Leave Britney Alone,” guys. You get it? Go on and hit it, baby, one more time!
