"QUE PASA - ME NO POP I"
Composed & Performed by CoatiMundi
"Xtreme" performance video of the classic Splangish rap song.
Coati Mundi aka Andy Hernandez formerly of Kid Creole and The Coconuts and also Dr.Buzzard's Original Savannah Band risks his life on a improvised comic romp through Washington Square Park. Unsuspecting park goers are pounced upon and forced to become unpaid extras.
This no fear freestyle fun fest frolic flip flop forage was fortunately inspired by a lack of an informal education and an obsessive need for misplaced alienation.
Guerrilla style music video directed by
Ed Steinberg of ROCKAMERICA.
Filmed on a lovely NYC Sunday afternoon in 1981.
AMAZING TRIVIA SIDEBAR:
- There were 7 to 9 complete performances done that day. There were very little edits made. You forensics freaks however will be able to figure out where the cuts were manifested by the size , dimension and kinetic angle of the various shadows cast by the people , poles and the surrounding foliage.
- This video was previously posted as two clips. Even though it meant a drop in quality we however combined both clips and re-posted it as a single clip on the behest of celebrated Film Director & Mundi fan Olivier Stone. When Coati auditioned for a film role that eventually went to Tom Cruise he paraphrased the lyrics singing: "ME NO POPEYE - YOU NO OLIVE STONE".
- One of the kids playing in the children's playground section turned out to be Leonardo DiCaprio. Could you tell which one it is?
- We had a 20 year anniversary of the filming event. It turns out unfortunately that 85% of the people under 21 years old that day are presently incarcerated in a maximum secured facility. Please pray for them.
DISCLAIMER: Do not try this type of performance on your own without consulting a professional and in the company of a militia.
