Wendy and her husband, writer/director Stas Tagios have self-financed and posted numerous music videos and comedy sketches on YouTube (among them “Yes I’m a Ho,” “GFE: The Girlfriend Experience,” and the hugely successful “Poop Noodle”), but now we want to take our production to the next level and would like to ask for your help.
We are looking for funding to help us create a fabulous music video for comedian and performer Wendy Ho’s classic song, “Fuck Me.” With lyrics written and performed by Wendy, and beloved and lip-synced by drag queens around the world, "Fuck Me" is a timeless, sexy, and hilarious romantic ballad about the most primal of physical desires.
We love working together and making people laugh, which is why up to this point we've self-financed all of our video content and put it up for free on Youtube. But we want to make this video our best yet and make it something special.
We want this video to challenge Hollywood's cliché depiction of love, which usually features only young, white, anorexic model types, and instead showcase a diverse cast of performers to show that love has no boundaries, that people of all body types, genders, races, and sexual preferences are equally deserving of love and lust, and to do so in the funny, sexy way in which Wendy Ho continues to entertain her fans. We want to move you, make you think, and most of all, make you laugh.
Risks and challenges
Though we’ve always strived for great production value in our previous, all-self-funded projects, budget limitations frequently meant shooting in our apartment, with minimal or no crew, and guerilla-style shoots in various L.A. locations. But “Fuck Me” is Wendy’s signature song and has brought millions of people joy around the world, and we want to do it justice by making the “Fuck Me” video the ultimate Wendy Ho production.
To do this, we are hiring a cast, renting a soundstage for a nightclub shoot, hiring a production designer, a crew, and really going the extra mile to entertain the fuck out of everyone around the world who has enjoyed Wendy’s lovely vocal stylings on the “Fuck Me” audio track. The video will feature multiple character storylines, numerous locations, and as always, Wendy Ho’s trademark strong sexy “female drag queen” persona.
Because we are committed to making this video, we are already spending money out of pocket to get the production rolling, reserve equipment, and studio space, hire cast and crew, etc. But we would be eternally grateful to Wendy’s fans if they could help us from going into the poorhouse for this production, and contribute what they can to help us make “Fuck Me” Wendy’s dirtiest, funniest, sexiest, most ridiculous music video yet!
If you loved “Poop Noodle,” “Yes I’m A Ho,” "Bitch I Stole Your Purse," or any of Wendy Ho’s other bold, brash visions of female sexuality, please consider donating to help us produce this video.
Your kind contribution will go to help us with the following costs:
Studio rental/location fee: $3500
Production Design: $1000
Equipment rental: $1000
Our actual costs will likely be higher than our stated goal. These are only partial costs of the video, but we are committed to completing it with our own funds if necessary, because we believe in this project. If we meet our goal, any additional money will go right back into the production. The fact is, we make our videos mainly to entertain ourselves and our audience, which is why have continued to self-fund and post them for free. By helping fund our latest project, you will help us continue to make more comedic content.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
