The Offspring cover Joe Exotic from quarantine

Fans of Tiger King know that Joe Exotic commissioned a Vancouver group called the Clinton Johnson Band to write and record songs for him. Joe then either lip-synced or sang softly under the actual vocals. Two albums are available for sale in the Greater Wynnewood Zoo in Oklahoma.

Since the debut of the Netflix series, a couple of those songs have become viral hits on Spotify. Now The Offspring (who admit to being a little stir crazy during the coronavirus lockdown) have decided to cover “Here Kitty Kitty.” Because why not?

Wait. Dexter and Noodles just happened to have a tiger costume lying around? And who’s the dancing cat?
