Oh, have I got something juicy for you all today! We are about to embark on an expedition, an expedition into one of the most interesting musical stories I have uncovered in a while...
I will start at the beginning: a man by the name of Boudreaux apparently found some old tapes of this artist from the 90's called BNNY RBBT, who is a 7-foot tall rabbit man, and he has been on a mission since, alongside help from the Internet to find more footage of this mythical creature. You can see the findings so far online if ya Google his name.
Since the footage has been published there has been a big online debate as to whether this is a big hoax, or the artist actually existed. Essentially BNNY RBBT is the lock ness monster of the Internet. Personally, it doesn't bother me whether the giant bunny rabbit is from the 90's or from this decade, I am just kind of in love with the story, and most importantly, the music.
So far there have been six songs found of his, all with their own little backstory. The songs themselves are a retro as fuck collage of autotune, synths and obscurities, tinged with melancholy and nostalgia- among other things. It is hard to confine to a genre per say, but I would say it does fall into the avant-garde side of things (yes, I know I run the risk of sounding like a twat). So, if this was made in the 90's, then it is very advanced for it's time, which is definitely something to celebrate. Needless to say, this story wouldn't need so intriguing if the music wasn't so good.
And so the treasure hunt goes on, in ultimate search for the truth... Boudreaux spoke to us about the bunny man, saying: "We are always looking for more clues and more an more people are helping out worldwide". He is certain that "BNNY RBBT will be found someday".
I am a big fan of the concept more than anything. The Internet is split; some really want to believe the story is true, and maybe it is, and the other half determined to prove the hoax. Either way, in my eyes, it is a win. On one hand, there is a revived 90's sensation that we get the pleasuring of reliving, and on the other hand, we have an ingenious, and enthralling way to market an artist by getting the audience involved, making the journey a collaborative experience as opposed to a showcase.
It has been a while since I have been so excited about an artist and their story. Hopefully, more BNNY RBBT music will surface! Keep on digging homies of the Internet, I am sure you are close...See the obscure myth, legend, hoaxter for yourself in the YouTube video for the track "If I Were Human" below, and then follow the Easter egg hunt for more details if you may:
