The sensational Netflix docu-series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness surrounds the life of former zookeeper Joe Exotic. If you have sat through all seven episodes, you’ll know that Exotic has had a hand on almost everything to gain popularity.
From creating his own reality show to running for the governor of Oklahoma, Exotic exudes an impressive range. However, the show frequently includes a number of B-rolls featuring Exotic’s music videos from the time he launched his music career.
Variety has listed out 10 of his music videos, which often highlight his love for big cats, ownership of exotic animals and direct remarks at his longstanding rival, animal rights activist Carole Baskin.
Here are some of them to give you a little escape from paw-redom.
Here Kitty Kitty
This music video was largely used in the docu-series, and sees Exotic dressed as a mashup between a cowboy and a priest. One particular scene in the music video shows a Baskin lookalike feeding meat to his tigers. However, the plate she’s holding spots a human head, likely hinting at her missing husband.
I Saw a Tiger
This wistful music video features Exotic belting out a tribute to his love for big cats. The lyric in the song, “I saw a tiger and the tiger saw man,” is definitely unforgettable, as it excludes a poignant relationship between animal and man.
Pretty Woman Lover
Though Exotic was depicted as a polygamous gay man in the Netflix series, this music video is a huge contrast from that. It displays Exotic posing with two women dressed in racy cowboy gears. He even sings, “I’m a pretty woman lover, I’m an ugly woman’s dream,” right in front of this then-husband John Finlay.
The song is about elephant-poaching, and includes graphic images of poached elephants. However, it still offers a little insight into the illegal business of poaching. “We can take on every animal God made, except the animal in man,” is a line in the song that actually spotlights the importance of wildlife conservation around the world.
