i think we're alone now

Is this really the official video for Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now"? What the hell were they thinking when they cut this video?

Digging up this video was prompted by the discovery of the 2008 documentary of the same name, which tells the story of two mentally askew, and at some times unstable, Tiffany "stalkers."

The film really has little to do with Tiffany and rather provides a voyeuristic look into the psychology of obsession in the cases the two individuals profiled: "Jeff, 50-year-old man [at the time of shooting] with Asperger's syndrome, and Kelly, an 'intersexual' who claims to have had an inspirational friendship with the singer when they were teens." At only 61 minutes long, it's an odd bit of insight into something that goes beyond obsession and into emotional fragility and self-delusion as it quickly become apparent there are other issues beneath simply being in love with Tiffany.

Watch the trailer below but your easiest bet to see the whole thing is streaming on Netflix.
