There has been some talk in the comments section about the identity of the person I call "the actor" in the Iamaphoney videos. This person started appearing in Rotten Apple videos around #39. We often refer to him as Iamaphoney, but there is no way to know if the person we see on camera leaving "Love Code" signs around the world and suitcases in California is the same person who writes and records the songs and edits the videos.
Just to recap for those who tuned in late...As Iamaphoney's personality began to emerge last year, there was a bogus biography on Wiki for one Ian Martin Jr. The entry stated that he was born in November of 1966 (of course) in Sao Paulo, Brasil [Brazil] and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark. The entry identified him as one of the founders of the Danish band Pupul (aka Pupil CPH or Pupil Copenhagen). He also supposedly worked in television. Wiki also clearly identified Ian Martin as the person behind the Rotten Apple series on YouTube.
I don't know if the Wiki article was something done by him or something done to him, but it no longer exists. The Danish band Pupul or Pupil Copenhagen had some YouTube videos on Iamaphoney's favorites list until I pointed that out in a post on Nothing is Real. Since then, I have not been able to find a trace of the band on YouTube.
It has been suggested that the name Ian Martin is a hybrid of Ian Walsh and Martin Lind, two Danish musicians from the band Boghandle, who supposedly reunited to create the Rotten Apple Series. Martin Lind is known as Formermedia and has several videos on YouTube, including one called "Who is Former?" that shows a person who may or may not be the actor in the Rotten Apple videos.
These two shots are from "Who Is Former?"
The picture below is supposedly Martin Lind. And if you click on this video you will see all kinds of comments from people who frequent this blog.
Someone else who frequented this blog claimed to be an acquaintance of Martin Lind and insisted that there is no way that he has anything to do with the Rotten Apple Series. One thing is for sure: Formermedia/Martin Lind is not the actor in Iamaphoney's videos.
Someone suggested that the actor resembles Zac Starkey, the very successful drummer and son of Ringo Starr. I believe that is impossible, but someone else suggested Jason Starkey, the not very successful drummer and son of Ringo Starr who resembles Zac Starkey and may even resemble the actor in the Rotten Apple videos.
This is a picture of a young Jason Starkey with a young Julian Lennon.
Jason has had some musical success including a stint with a working band called Buddy Curtis and the Grasshoppers in the mid 1980s.
But Jason has also had a few run-ins with the law for drug possession and theft. Psychobabblers like myself might wonder if sibling rivalry and career frustration could make a man do something crazy for attention. Still, there is no way Jason Starkey could be the actor in the Rotten Apple videos. Can you imagine how mortified Ringo would be if it were true?
This is a picture of the actor from the Rotten Apple series.
Compare that with the picture of Jason Starkey below:
That's Jason standing between Stella McCartney and Dhani Harrison. He's right under the smiley face killer emblem. Uh oh!
