We talked to one of the musicians who actually wrote the Tiger King’s music. https://t.co/6w1WKG5Vry— Slate (@Slate) March 28, 2020
*Tiger King Joe Exotic’s music may be taking social media by storm (admit it, you’ve found yourself humming “I Saw A Tiger” at least once during this past week) but if you thought those dulcet tones were made by Joe himself...you’d be wrong.
*Actual credit goes to Washington state musicians Vince Johnson and Danny Clinton.
*The two connected with Joe Exotic via an online ad looking for someone to write a theme song for Exotic’s zoo, as well as for his in the works reality tv series.
*It wasn’t until months later that the duo realized Joe was Milli Vanilli-ing them, lip syncing to the songs which feature Joe’s vocals mixed in low—very very low—with Johnson and Clinton’s.
