Ufo Eye Knight Video

Please  scroll down and read the brief comments below (so you’ll understand the context of this strange video) before you watch. The second image with the larger play arrow is the one that will trigger the YouTube. Oh, and please don’t quote out of context, much of it is an absurd performance piece with absurdities and deeply held convictions mixed up together.

Two African American friends of mine (I mention their race so you can understand the racial jokes I worked into the religion) said they wanted to come over to my apartment in the East Village and video tape me in 1985. I decided to create my own religion for the occasion—the Sacred Tenets of the Religion of the UFO Eye Knight. I was an English Teacher and Building Security Coordinator of a public high school in the South Bronx at the time and I got Galaxy, a graffiti artist I knew, to design the ID card and a rapper (I think with the Culture MCs) to write an official rap poem for the religion. They knew nothing about the religion except its name.
