Remember Zach Slow, the guy who spent $10,000 on Lady Sovereign, only to get dissed by her in the press? It would appear that he isn’t going to let this whole thing drop, going so far as to enlist his friend to challenge Sov to a duel last night in San Francisco. The twist? The friend was dressed up like a jelly donut:
During the show, supporters of the kid handed out images of a Jelly Donut with the instructions, “hold this up and chant for Jelly Donut after the fourth song.” The girl leads off with her most popular jam, followed by a couple of forgettable tracks. The crowd is anxious (well, at least I was) when the fourth song arrives. Some people hold up their donuts. Nothing happens.
After the fourth song, the girl notices the guy in the audience and starts taunting him, “you fucking kid. You stoner. I love SF but I hate this kid. You fucking grandma’s boy. You stoner.. you’re just a Beavis! Hahaha (lauging at self) Hahaha.” Meanwhile, people have started chanting “JEL-LY… JEL-LY… JEL-LY…” and the bouncers are running around the audience and hopping up on stage. The girl spits her her drink at the donut, and the audience retaliates with some more liquid, tagging her square in the face. Bouncers continue to bounce, the girl drops another song, the crowd is quelled, and the donut is ejected.
Slow and his pals are apparently planning a fourth round of heckling, fighting, and blogging, and while we love a good stunt, we also love a good stunt that knows when it’s run its course. Zach, take our advice: It’s time to let it go, mainly because if you keep this up, you will never get a date again.
