No, you weren't hallucinating if you saw naked boobies on C-SPAN this evening while flipping channels (since it's unlikely you were actually sitting there watching it): uncensored, unpixelated clips from the M-rated "The Guy Game" and "Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude" were shown to a bored looking audience (including Senators Joe Lieberman and Herb Kohl) as part of a National Institure for Media and the Family briefing on its annual MediaWise Video Game Report Card. As with most such "but what about the children?" type of reports, it's hard to tell exactly what the purpose of the video footage was: presumably, either to warn Mom to keep an eye out for certain game titles on Junior's wish list, or to help Dad decide what to buy himself for Christmas this year.
Grainy screencaps (blame Real Player, not us) and link to video after the jump—thanks to our profanity-laced and sex-obsessed colleague for the heads-up.

Watch the video: "Briefing on MediaWise Video Game Report Card", 11/23/04, or access video file directly here (Real Media streaming video @ c-span.org; boobie clips are at ca. 15:00-16:30 in the broadcast, since we'd hate to have you sit through the whole thing just to see a flash of you-know-what)
