The duo are serving up tricks and treats this All Hallows Eve in their new video “Monster Mashup,” which dropped earlier today on Pissi Myles’ YouTube channel. The New Jersey-based artists teamed up to create the ultimate “Frankensong” (like Frankenstein, get it?) by blending together a medley of classic tracks that’ll have you twerking in terror, including “Love Potion No. 9″ by The Searchers, “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell and “Psycho Killer” by The Talking Heads.
The video, directed and filmed by Joe la Scola, pays homage to some of your favorite horror icons like Pennywise from It, Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus, Ghostface from the Scream trilogy and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark — which should come as no surprise, as Myles and Joe la Scola are known for putting their signature spin on movie monsters after the viral success of their 2017 collaboration Babashook, which parodied the recent outing of the titular character from the film The Babadook.
“Halloween is gay Christmas! It’s a day when you can be whatever you want. It’s essentially a day when everyone gets out their high drag. It’s flamboyant, it’s colorful, it’s extravagant, it’s everything that the gay community celebrates!” Myles said when asked why she’s coming back with another Halloween track.
Walker agrees that their monster mashup video is perfect for the holiday: “The mashup covers a bunch of Halloween topics in a short amount of time: magic, paranoia, madness, murder, death … and cowbell. Can always use more cowbell.”
