ABOUT THE CREATOR:

Hi, my name is Bob Brooks, and I wrote and directed the phenomenon which has become THE DILDO SONG.

I am a writer/director from Vancouver, BC. You may have seen one of my music videos on tv - but, I'm far greater known as the director of this piece (this piece of shit, some of the less enlightened might say)!

It all began back in 1999. I had just graduated film school. A good friend of mine, Alastair Anderson, called. He was taking a computer editing course through Vancouver Film School, and - since he had no interest in film-making whatsoever - wondered if I had any old short-film scripts that I wanted to film (he needed some footage to learn to edit with). I suddenly remembered an old joke that I had wanted to shoot some day - The Dildo Song!

So, in a matter of a few days we gathered together some friends, actors and equipment (we shot on S-VHS, which partly explains the crappy images, as every DV camera in the city happened to be rented that weekend).

The night before we shot, Al and I composed the music in MIDI (well, Al composed the music, while I watched) - on a Pro-Tools station - being sure to change every single note - lest the Copyright Gods frown upon us - using an original Slinky Song recording from a bygone era as a guide.

The first time I met Koralee was when she arrived that night to record her vocals - which were giving her serious problems (we had changed the music so much from the original that it was like two different tunes). But, she gave us a wonderful performance in the end. We went home around 1 or 2am that night.

Shoot Day!

The next morning we arrived at the park across from the houses Al and I grew up in - only to find hundreds of 6 and 7 year old children playing in a massive soccer tournament! There were at least 4 full-sized games being played at the same time! And, every once in a while a small child (or parent) would wander by the playground in which we were filming - quickly, we would cut the cameras, hide the props and quietly assure the parents that they might not want to keep their child around to watch as we filmed...

For the next few weeks, Alastair taught himself to edit with the footage we shot - the final product: The Dildo Song. To this day the only short film he has ever edited (not bad for a first timer eh?!?).

A few months later, on a whim, I sent it off to Ifilm - and they put it on their site. This was in the Summer of 1999. When it premiered, I sent one single email to a mailing list I was a member of (consisting solely of vintage movie poster collectors). For obvious reasons, Ifilm never advertised The Dildo Song. This one email to a few hundred people led to a massive word-of-mouth campaign and by the end of the year, The Dildo Song was one of the 3 most downloaded short-films of all time (see also, 405: The Movie which was out around the same time). The momentum kept up and The Dildo Song was one of the most downloaded short-films of 2000 as well. It was also, quite possibly, the most pirated piece of video on the web, so the actual numbers should be much higher.

The response was phenomenal... Well, except for the death threats anyways! They say that no one understands satire any more - and I can't argue with that! You wouldn't believe how many people thought that I was seriously advocating sex-toys for minors! Not a single person seemed to 'get' that dildos are NOT something to be sold to toddlers - just as "My-First-Ghetto-Blaster's" weren't something that should have been sold to minors either. But they were. And, that was my point...

From just this web viewership, we ended up getting invited to Just For Laughs as well as many major (and not so major) film festivals (and gay and lesbian festivals) around the world. It has been shown internationally on networks such as Bravo!, the BBC, ITV, etc... A company even streamed it into video-kiosks in malls throughout the USA. Even the out-takes were recently featured on a popular bloopers show.

To this day, The Dildo Song survives as strong as ever. Barely a week goes by without someone emailing me about it (thanks for all the kind words).

It was intended solely as a joke (and an editing project for a friend), but has gone on to entertain tens (or even hundreds) of millions of people (and on a budget in the low 3 figures too)! Far beyond anything I ever expected (if I had known how popular it would become, I would have shot it on film, and a lot more carefully I would think).

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy...
THE DILDO SONG

Cheers,

Bob Brooks
