The Music Video
The music video of the party rock anthem grabbed a lot of attention. It is a funny take and well-thought idea about the release of a song by LMFAO. The video features members of LMFAO. In addition, there are people from dance groups. The members of Quest Crew and Melbourne Shuffle gave us a good dose of cool dance and amazing choreography.
The video was shot at the famous Warner Brothers Studios. The backlot of New York Street was used mainly in the song. The main theme of the video is that there has been an epidemic. During that, a song was released and possessed everyone. Now, they are all shuffling it.
The video begins by showing two members of the band are in a hospital. They fell into a coma after partying so hard. They wake up from a coma and head out of the hospital. As they go out, they find the street empty with abandoned cars. It seems like chaos out there. A few events later, the song begins to play in the street, and everyone starts dancing to the song. In a second shot, a nighttime street is shown.
The complete idea of the video just clicked right. It won the Best Video award at the TRL Awards.
The Music Tempo
The song has a tempo of 120 beats per minute.
