Perhaps it is appropriate that the notorious Perfume444, known in real life as “Frank,” shares a name with Livejournal’s hoofed mascot. He could either be a G.O.A.T., the Greatest [stupid ass wota] Of All Time, or he could simply be … a goat.
His story is one that has become the stuff of 21st-century digital lore. Crazy old guy posts videos of himself online, professes undying love for adorkable Japanese technopop group, audiences are simultaneously weirded out and fascinated, and an Internette Legend is born.
His legend only became stronger when, through a remarkable confluence of the Fates, Perfume actually came IN AMERICA for the premiere of Pixar’s Cars 2 after their song “Polyrhythm” was selected for the soundtrack. Now, I don’t know what kind of connections Perfume444 has, but somehow he got a pass into the VIP area, crossed paths with Perfume, and had the experience of his life when he met the three girls who meant more to him than anything in the world.
