Stalker

It all started in 2009, on a small youth camp in the middle of the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. As usual, I was keeping myself entertained with friends when I came up with a random song about stalkers. We thought it was hilarious and joked about starting a band with Stalker as our first hit. The song was stuck in my head, and eventually I recorded a chipmunk version of it which was released on Srizzil and later removed.

 

The song was destined for greater, and in February 2011 I decided to bring it to life in a comedic music video. I found a funny recording where my voice hadn’t been chipmunkified and beefed up the song a little. Then it was lights, camera, action. I filmed the black screen shots, and then went about creating arbitrary moments where the stalker would freak me out.

 

Something was missing though. I needed a stalker, a real face to put to the song. I found that in my brave friend Ryleigh. In spite of the song’s harsh words, she put on a crazy face and stalked me for the camera. Although far from creepy, scary or ugly, Ryleigh created a brilliant portrayal of a crazed fan. Huge props to her.

 

Have you ever had a real stalker experience?

Some say I'm the most handsome man in the world (my mom), others tend to disagree, but one thing is certain - I love to entertain. Whether it be through music, writing, or film, seeing people respond with a smile is worth more than a bag of gold. Figuratively obviously, because smiles are free and gold is very expensive.
