Jackie The Clipper was originally released as part of the Dial-a-Song project in 2018 and as a part of The Escape Team comic and disc project for the Instant Fan Club. It is a parody of Jack the Ripper, updated to a female, modern day serial killer told from the viewpoint of someone who used to know her. It is a relatively pleasant pop song considering the subject matter. The video slip consists of an animated series of images explaining the story.
