THIS. IS. AMAZING. …THE FUCKING SMOKING MAN, GODDAMN IT!

Singer-songwriter Bree Sharp turned a fan obsession with David Duchovny into a record deal with her witty ode to Fox’s fox. “The song is about David, but it’s also about the way fantasy and reality blur,” Sharp says. “And how giddy, hot and excellent that can be.”

“David Duchovny” not only caught the ear of Trauma Records, but a tape made its way to Duchovny, who put it into heavy rotation in his trailer. “David kept on playing it,” says Charles Forsch, assistant to X-Files creator, Chris Carter. Along with another X-Files assistant, Will Shivers, Forsch created this video for the song, splicing clips of Duchovny with on-the-fly footage of celebs like Brad Pitt, Pamela Anderson and George Clooney lip-synching the lyrics. “As soon as they heard the song, they were into it!” Forsch says.


Note: you have to make it to at least the halfway point for the payoff to really begin. The payoff besides the pool shots, I mean.
