Eccentric Millionaire McAfee Returns in Bizarre Video Clip

Mcafee clipJohn McAfee, founder and ex-owner of McAfee Inc, an anti-virus software still popular in Southeast Asia, has resurfaced on the web with a bizarre video clip in which he takes on the role as an eccentric millionaire, slamming his own software and explaining how to uninstall it.

In the video — viewed by almost 1 million one day after posting on June 19 — he is in the company of young women (dancers from Portland’s Club Exotica, according to the credits) and seems to enjoy what is described as ‘bath salts.’ His assistant then tries to explain how to remove the McAfee software from a computer, but doesn’t get far.

McAfee, who resigned from his company in 1994, had amassed a fortune of around $100 million which he, however, lost during the financial crisis in 2008/09. He started a few other software ventures but eventually moved to Belize in Central America where he set up a biotech company and was also teaching yoga.

For some reason he earned a reputation in Belize for drug abuse, being a gun fanatic and hosting hordes of young women in his mansion in Orange Walk Town, Belize. He was also brought in connection with the murder of American expatriate Gregory Viant Faull, a situation which prompted McAfee to escape to Guatemala in 2012. He was later extradited to the US and today lives in Portland, Oregon.

More may come to light when his close friend George Jung finishes McAfee’s biography under the title ‘No Domain.’ George Jung, or ‘Boston George,’ was the most notorious cocaine trader in the US in the 1970s and 1980s linked to Colombia’s Medellin cartel. He was portrayed in the 2001 movie ‘Blow’ by Johnny Depp.

In the video clip below, McAfee also points out how he tried to get his tax filing sorted in Bangkok, Thailand (3.42)
