Brooklyn, NY (June 30th, 2017) – Announced today, Pissi Myles, one of the Northeast’s most buzzed about drag entertainers, dropped the hauntingly funny music video, “Babashook,” her newest dance track inspired by the queer community’s latest creep queen: The Babadook.
A full-time drag performer and recently featured as a special guest on RuPaul’s podcast, “What’s the T?”, Myles has dedicated her career to representing the freak in all of us. “ I think queer people have always identi ed with the isolation and power of the monster or villain in a horror movie, especially when they’re as fabulous as Babadook or Ursula the Sea Witch. As a gay person, there have always been people who made me feel like my actions were wrong or evil, when I knew that I was just pursuing my goals and desires. While many movie villains actually do have bad intentions, I’ve always had an understanding for the villain and their plight for understanding.”
In early June, the internet outed the Australian monster/allegory when a bemused Net ix user discovered the horror ick had been accidentally grouped with LGBT content on the popular streaming site. The glitch set o a viral restorm just in time for Pride, inspiring countless tweets, original art, and several drop dead gorgeous parade looks. When asked why she created the music video Myles said, “My husband and I both love scary movies, so when Babadook “came out” we wanted to bring this new side of the character to life.”
“Babashook” was co-written by Myles and humorist Topher Cusumano, with an original track by producer B. Ames. The video was directed by Joe la Scola with drag photographer David Ayllon serving as creative director.
