Black Eyed Peas’ New Music Video Is Inspired By Rajnikanth And Singham For Some Reason
“Umm, what the fuck!” I exclaimed. I choked on my chai when a buddy of mine sent me screenshots of will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas dressed as Rajnikanth. WTF is the only appropriate reaction for something of this magnitude.
He immediately sent me a link to BEP’s new music video for their song ACTION, and I was… Speechless, to say the least. What was I watching? BEP members actually recreating iconic scenes from movies like Rajnikanth’s Robot and Ajay Devgn’s Singham.
The group made sure to attach a small message in the video’s YouTube description explaining why they went this route. “The Black Eyed Peas have been inspired by Indian culture from the beginning of our career. From Asha Bhosle to A.R Rahman, Indian music has influenced our songs on more than one occasion…This video for ACTION shows our LOVE and appreciation for BOLLYWOOD and the imagination and awesomeness it brings to the screen… Thank you INDIA & BOLLYWOOD,” read the message.
