The X-Files premiered 20 years ago today. I discovered that after searching the X-Files crew-created version of a video for Bree Sharp's David Duchovny. That search was prompted by Hobocamper posting a lyric only version in NomNom83's post asking about watching the show for some great comments about the show, in which Hobocamper posts a lyric only copy of the song. So, thanks to NomNom83 for bringing up the show, thanks to Hobocamper for bringing up the song, and thanks to Chris Carter, Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and everyone else involved for some great tv.
Now, that video. Here's the description from YouTube:
"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.
