Is Dave Camarillo Training Kenny Florian to Face BJ Penn?

If you're like me, you receive plenty of Twitter updates from MMA fighters. Normally, I don't pay too much attention to them, but one from Kenny Florian took me by surprise:

Kenny_Florian View my new spoof film "Don't Pull Half Guard" Pt 1 - http://tinyurl.com/mwfz4u Pt 2 - http://tinyurl.com/nxydez from web

Of course, I clicked through to the videos, and what did I see?

A spoof film starring Kenny, and well-known BJJ trainer Dave Camarillo of the American Kickboxing Academy, in black face no less.

That struck me as pretty odd, since Dave is known to be buddies with BJ Penn, Kenny's opponent at UFC 101. They both came up in Ralph Gracie's BJJ academy in California, and even authored a book together, "BJJ Closed Guard" which you can see here.

Camarillo also briefly appeared in the Renzo Gracie Legacy documentary, helping BJ train for the Renzo fight.

So does it strike anyone else as odd that Kenny and Dave are so buddy-buddy right before UFC 101? Could Kenny have enlisted Dave for help with combatting BJ's monster ground game? Perhaps they were just goofing around after taping Time Warp, but you never know...
