"I am not a cult leader"

If you're on the interwebs that you'll almost certainly heard of That Poppy, the mysterious (although not that mysterious) singer and... character? Statement? Alien? Whatever Poppy is, she's made an impact and a large part of her success is due to an elusive figure by the name of Titanic Sinclair.


 Who is Titanic?

In his own words he is a director who makes internet videos in Los Angeles. He is the man behind Poppy's short, strange, hypnotic little creations.


No but who is he REALLY?

His real name is apparently Corey Mixter. He is a 30 year old artist from Saginaw, Michigan and has been professionally active since around 2006.

He makes videos of his own that are very similar to Poppy's but seem to have slightly more overt humour, highlighting the main aim of all their video creations: parodying modern internet culture. One thing is for sure, though...


 He is not a cult leader

At least not according to him.


Poppy seems sure of this too

Though the video is not super convincing.


Poppy isn't his first project

Before Poppy, Titanic worked with a young woman named Mars Argo, who had a similar vibe to Poppy. But Mars was mysteriously replaced by the Poppy we know and fear. You can read that story here.

He is now being sued by Mars Argo

Titanic is now being sued by Mars Argo for alleged "emotionally abuse". She also accuses Titanic and Poppy of stealing her character. You can find out more about that story here.
