INSIGHT INTO A SONG:
Last December, Snoop Dogg released his song, “Sensual Seduction,” and after one listen, I KNEW this song would be ripe for a parody! After taking two days to figure out what I could use as subject matter that would sound close to the phonetics of the original song, I suddenly thought of “Erectile Dysfunction” and burst out laughing!
Clearly, this was a good idea to run with.
I recorded it and wanted to get the song out there, but I had two problems: one, I didn’t have time to put a REAL video together because it was around Christmas and staying with family; and two, I wasn’t too familiar with any free MP3 download sites. So, I found a bunch of pictures online, pasted them and put them together on www.onetruemedia.com, loaded up the music and made a crappy-ass video for the song, figuring it wouldn’t get much play, but I could at least send it out to my friends via youtube.
Imagine my surprise when, one day after putting it on youtube, it had 120 views – and I hadn’t even told anyone about the song yet!
5 months later, the song just passed the 10,000 view mark. My brother’s girlfriend’s brother, who goes to VCU, said it was the #1 downloaded song at his school – odd, given that I didn’t give a link address for the download of the song until last month. Guess someone must have recorded it and sent it around – and I couldn’t be happier about it!
So, enjoy the song! Come back next week for another song, courtesy of me!
*UPDATE: After the project ended, I started working on another website featuring a character named Non Juan, a puppet who is terrible at getting ladies to date him. One of the music videos we shot for him was a remake of “Erectile Dysfunction” recorded in his voice. This is the video that now takes the place of the original video which, as you may recall, was very, very crappy. Enjoy!” – A.P.T., May 18, 2010.*
