Everybody’s fave LGBTQ icon the Babadook has gotten a faaaaaaabulous drag makeover in this super-fun new music video by New Jersey drag queen Pissi Myles.
“I think queer people have always identified with the isolation and power of the monster or villain in a horror movie, especially when they’re as fabulous as Babadook. 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.”
“Babashook” was co-written by Myles and 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.
