Were he not cock-punched by the cruel fist of death almost exactly a year ago, Isaac Hayes would be turning a very soulful 67 today. Instead, he’s laying motionless in a Memphis graveyard. Alone. Dead. Humming some of his greatest hits. It’s a genuine shame. Hence, we decided to get him a gift, and knowing that he was a Scientologist, we thought we’d honour his beliefs by running around town dressed as lizards shouting at passers-by to hand over their souls. Whilst simultaneously discussing gift ideas, which quickly boiled down to a toss up between a science fiction book by L Ron Hubbard, or a clip of an amazing woman on the Ukrainian version of Britain’s Got Talent. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Isaac Hayes!
