On 12 September 1996, obsessed fan Ricardo López mailed an acid-spraying letter bomb to Björk’s London home and then killed himself, but the package was intercepted by the Metropolitan Police Service. López filmed himself in the process of making the acid bomb intended to kill her. The nearly 18 hours of videotape described López’s obsession with Björk, the construction of the device, his thoughts on love and other subjects, including racial remarks against Björk’s then-boyfriend Goldie. The video footage continues after his mailing the bomb to Björk’s London home and ends dramatically as López applies face paint, shaves his head and commits suicide by shooting himself on camera.
