A Famous Composer Wrote a Score for Trump Stalking Clinton at Debate

Last Sunday, as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton duked it out in a town hall-style debate, Trump followed Clinton around the stage when it was her turn to speak. His tactic quickly caught the attention of viewers and pundits and Clinton even admitted today that she could feel him behind her, trying to “dominate and literally stalk” her.

It also caught the attention of Danny Elfman, a composer whose work you’ve heard in BatmanEdward ScissorhandsMission: ImpossibleMen in Black, and so much more. He’s also the guy who wrote the theme for The Simpsons.

He decided to put the entire “stalking” thing to music.

He worked with Funny or Die, which is the same company that recently joined forces with Vice President Joe Biden on a video designed to combat sexual assault on college campuses.

In an article posted to the Funny or Die site, he explained, “Watching Trump lurching behind Hillary during the debate felt a bit like a zombie movie, like at any moment he was going to attack her, rip off her head, and eat her brains.”

Funny or Die finished off their piece by celebrating Elfman’s work as “bipartisan” because it will help Clinton fans see Trump as a villain and Trump fans “visualize him biting off her head.”
