Published Apr 23, 2020In the spirit of keeping quarantine activities light, pop-punk veterans the Offspring have shared a new video that sees the band take on Joe Exotic's "Here Kitty Kitty," the song about Carole Baskin's missing husband popularized by the viral Netflix show Tiger King.
In the video, the band are seen maintaining physical distancing protocol, with some members appropriately dressed as big cats while they cover the song about Baskin's alleged murder of former husband Don Lewis.
Here's what the Offspring had to say about their cover:
Hey, Guys! Like many of you, we are going a little stir crazy these days and we wanted to do something fun to put a smile on our faces, and hopefully on some of yours too. This song, "Here Kitty Kitty," was originally by the Clinton Johnson band, and *not* by anyone in that recent documentary we all got caught up in.
The Offspring wives were group texting recently, and while they all agreed that they truly love their husbands, there are times when they've absolutely felt like feeding us to the tigers. In that spirit, we hope you enjoy this random song & video.
Joe Exotic's 2015 track saw a rise in popularity this year after the release of Netflix's true-crime docuseries. Exotic is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for a murder-for-hire plot detailed in the series.
Lewis went missing in 1997, and while the case has gone cold, the popularity of Tiger King has spurred an onslaught of tips about his disappearance.
