CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Yesterday, Vice Media visited the Pipedream facilities as part of an upcoming pilot on manufacturing jobs in the U.S. 

VICE Media head of TV development Brendan FitzGerald along with director Lance Bangs contacted the manufacturer earlier in the week about the project then arrived Wednesday with a full crew and comedians David Gborie and Jesse Elias of “Flophouse” who serve as the show hosts.

After a rundown of a company and industry history, Rob Phaneuf, Pipedream’s VP of development, led the tour through all of Pipedream’s manufacturing plants while Gborie and Elias got a look at how sex toys get developed and produced.  

“I’m a huge fan of VICE,” said Pipedream’s Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “It's amazing to me that Pipedream continues to be recognized by the mainstream media as not only the largest, but the authority in the adult novelty business today.”

The VICE team spent the day shooting at Pipedream, the company said. The piece will be distributed through one of the brands many international broadcast channels. 

“It’s always great to welcome new faces to the Pipedream compound, but being a loyal VICELAND fan, this was really special,” Phaneuf said. “Showing people what we do here at Pipedream day in and day out, and of course seeing their reactions, is extremely rewarding and makes what we do so worthwhile.”

The upcoming VICE piece is the latest in mainstream media appearance featuring Pipedream. The company also has appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Vanderpump Rules” and “Billions.”
