Welcome to EXTREME Girl Power. Taylor Swift, director Joseph Kahn and a seemingly countless amount of cameos — Rihanna, Ellie Goulding, Lena Dunham, Hayley Williams, Hailee Steinfeld... you get the picture] — do in four minutes what Sucker Punch tried to do in about 110.
Wouldn't be surprised if the budgets were similar.
Kendrick Lamar keeps troubles at bay during a long walk through the city thanks to good music, good vibes and a message of self-worth and love. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Ron "Mr Biggs" Isley is there to bless this revamp of his Isley Brothers classic "That Lady" (which you probably remember from many other usages).
It's an ultra-exclusive party, complete with silly dresscode, silly security and silly secrecy. And Mayer Hawthorne jumps through even hoop and makes the trek, all to realize that he's still mainly hanging with his own bad self.
Usually all the star power in a movie video is via the film footage. Not the case here, as Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and even composer Hans Zimmer all show up to electrify NYC just as much as what we see in the Spider-Man 2 clips.
It's not the Lingerie Bowl, but this game of Twerk Football gets close thanks as Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar make a convincing case that next year's Rose Bowl Parade should include an Ass Float.
A trippy party video with a disembodied head, plus various warping and negative effects that stops every now and then to highlight the #oxymoron hashtag. Also, keep an eye out for cameo appearances by Macklemore and (fake) Barack Obama.
