This story includes spoilers for Netflix docuseries “Tiger King.” 

Joe Exotic, the tiger-breeding convicted felon with a bleach-blonde mullet who once ran for U.S. President and orchestrated an alleged plot to kill his nemesis, wants to be a country music star? 

Sure, why not? Crazier things have happened this month. 

Exotic (born Joe Schreibvogel), takes center stage in the bizarre buzzed-about Netflix docuseries “Tiger King.” The seven-episode series chronicles too-real-to-be-real stories from independently-operated exotic zoos, including Exotic and his cartoonish staff at the Greater Wynewood Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma.  

 And tucked into the plot of this self-isolating treat is Exotic’s modest country music ambitions.

All about the series:‘Tiger King’: Joe Exotic’s journey from big cats to the Big House after murder for hire

He’s published nearly a dozen music videos to his “JoeExoticTV” YouTube channel — a truly fitting country-western (and mostly catchy?) soundtrack to the flamboyant and outlandish story captured in “Tiger King.” 

This mind-numbing escapism includes on-point cuts “Here Kitty Kitty,” “I Saw A Tiger” and an unexpectedly tender ballad, “My First Love.” 

Lest we not forget the country-rock ode to uber-masculinity, “Pretty Woman Lover,” which Exotic released as an openly gay polygamist. 

Start by digging into his “I Saw A Tiger” video, a ballad that leaves viewers with no shortage of bombastic fashion choices and sincerely touching lyrics. 

“I saw a tiger, and the tiger saw man,” he croons. 

Too good to be true? It might be. The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday that songwriter Vince Johnson penned the tunes, which singer Danny Clinton performed. The show credits each for “archival footage” in the series. 

At least the effort couldn’t be faked. 

Convicted in January, Exotic is serving a 22-year sentence on two murder-for-hire charges and more than a dozen wildlife violations
