Disney bosses are fuming after a video of Disney characters simulating sex was circulated on the internet. The two-and-a-half minute clip shows Disneyland staff dressed in costumes of Disney favourites Mickey Mouse, MINNIE MOUSE and GOOFY pretending to have sex in a variety of kinky poses. The clip is believed to have been shot by a backstage worker with a concealed camera at Disneyland Resort Paris. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "It's Disney characters as you've never seen them before. Goofy grabs Minnie's boobs but the highlight has to be Mickey's gay romp. "The (Disney) organisation never tolerates any behaviour that could taint its spotless image. They will be desperate to get to the bottom of this." A Disney spokeswoman said, "We are aware of the video that was taken in an area not accessible to guests at Disneyland Resort Paris. "We regret any offence it might cause. Action has been taken to prevent this happening again."

Making TV shows available for downloading online does not affect DVD sales of the same shows, according to Disney CFO Tom Staggs.
