‘Leave Britney Alone’ Pleader Chris Crocker Profiled in New Documentary ‘Me at the Zoo’ [VIDEO]

Meet Me at the Zoo

Unless this is your first day on the internet, you’re almost certainly familiar with Chris Crocker. He was the mascara-smudged Britney Spears uber-fan who pleaded with the world to just leave her alone already during the singer’s tragic, head-shearing meltdown back in 2007.

Since then, Crocker himself has become an internet superstar. The video that launched a zillion parodies has been watched more than 40 million times, and he’s uploaded hundreds more videos to his YouTube channel, where they’ve racked up a combined 233 million views.

Now two filmmakers are raising funds on Kickstarter for ‘Me at the Zoo,’ which they call “a feature-length documentary chronicling the online adventures of Chris Crocker,” with a goal of “connect[ing] the dots and tracing a life that’s already being lived online.” The title is a nod to the first video ever uploaded to YouTube.

The trailer below promises a film that “follows a line through Chris Crocker’s public videos, response videos and the echo chamber of fans, friends and haters.”

If you’re interested in the project you can like its Facebook page or, of course, donate money to help get the movie made.
