Alison Wonderland teams up with Phem for Tiger King-inspired ‘What Would Carole Baskin Do?’
Look, it’s 2020. We live in a strange time. There’s a global pandemic, many countries are in economic turmoil, no one can see or hug their friends anymore, and Netflix released an 7-part documentary on one of the wildest stories ever. Tiger King is the fever dream phenomenon sweeping the world, full of characters you love to hate with each episode outdoing itself in just how ridiculous this true story is.
Tiger King was released at just the right time with millions of people around the world forced to #stayhome due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and just like anything else that happens ever during these strange times we live in, the internet has repeatedly delivered the goods with many, many, MANY hilarious memes/tributes/op-eds now out in the world as well.
Two such people who clearly also couldn’t get enough of the outlandish series are ALISON WONDERLAND and LA-artist PHEM, who have joined forces to release the very cheeky ‘WWCBD?’. Inspired by one of Tiger King‘s main players, Carole Baskin and the rumour “Tiger King” himself Joe Exotic and others believe of Baskin killing her husband, ‘WWCBD?’ is an angsty break up banger that is very of-the-moment indeed.
With lyrics like “What would Carole Baskin do? She would probably murder you. What would Carole Baskin do? Feed you to the tigers but I can’t coz this virus got me paralysed again,” it doesn’t get more meta than this. Listen to ‘WWCBD?’ below!
