Swine Flu. A suitable subject for a hip-hop track? Mike Skinner of The Streets seems to think.
The UK rapper’s been quick off the mark to react to the escalating global hysteria that’s been whipped up by media coverage of the health scare.
His response is this little ditty entitled – ‘He’s Behind You, He’s Got Swine Flu’.
The storyline is basically that Swine Flu is turning sufferers into zombies that need tot be killed rather than cured.
“I don’t advocate anarchy in any way,” the lyrics read. “But I saw him scratch a rash and I had to grab an axe.”
It’s accompanied by a horror video composed of a mash-up of scenes from classic zombnie films, including ‘The Evil Dead’.
“Every scene in this video was painstakingly recreated using classic zombie footage as inspiration,” said Skinner.
“We used the exact film stock and even transferred onto the relevant home viewing format before editing.”
