"Trapped in the Closet" began as a five-part song on R. Kelly's album TP3. Reloaded in 2005. Since its release, the feature-length music video has gained a cult following. The Action Pack first screened the film at the Alamo in 2007. "Watching the hip-hopera unfold with a packed audience gasping and reacting at every twist and turn was perhaps one of the crowning moments of that decade," said Action Pack founder Henri Mazza. "So as soon as we heard that IFC was going to be releasing new chapters in the hopefully never-ending saga we reached out to them to start the process of bringing these interactive experiences to life."
The Sing-Along at New York Comic Con will be emceed by Mazza who will introduce the music videos, instruct attendees on the proper use of spatulas, toy Berettas, and rubbers throughout the screening, and demand that audience members stand up to "Step in the Name of Love." The event is open to all New York Comic Con badge holders.
