Karen O vs. Kool Keith

Teaser mp3

As the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup so aptly teaches us, mashing together two disparate things can often create a wonderous new entity. This important lesson can also be applied to pop culture, as proved by the unlikely pairing of Kool Keith and Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the song "Teaser."

Apparently, "Teaser" was recorded back in 2005 for Deep Throat vs. Lialeh, an album that was to feature artists conducting a "musical-type battle" between the 1974 porn flick Deep Throat and the first major black porn film, Lialeh. Somehow, amazingly, the ambitious project seems to have been aborted, leaving "Teaser," which showed up on the Internet just this week, as the only known evidence that it ever existed.
