The video was posted on YouTube in 2006 and has nearly 13 million views.
Since 2003, Deacon has released eight albums under several different labels. From his 2007 album Spiderman of the Rings, "The Crystal Cat" was listed #84 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Best Songs of 2007, and "Wham City" was #30 on Pitchfork's "Top 100 Tracks of 2007". Deacon also has a renowned reputation for his live shows, where he commands many of his audience members to perform obstacles during performance.
