Apparently, LMFAOmembers Sky Blu and Redfoo were envious of the teen stars of the classic '80s John Hughesfilm "Weird Science."They take on similar personas in their new hip-hop music video for their song "La La La."
Like "Weird Science"'s lead characters played by Anthony MichaelHall
and Ilan Mitchell-Smith
,Sky Blu and Redfoo create their own fantasy computer generated women.
Watch the original "Weird Science" trailer.
The extended intro for LMFAO's "La La La" videoborrows several visuals from the 1985 film. The Hollywood MCs feed photos of their ideal women into thecomputer and watch as the formation takes place. "La La La" uses similar specialeffects, even modeling the band logo after the Science logo used in the film.
In "Weird Science," the digital girl played by Kelly LeBrockcomes to life. In LMFAO's video, when their virtual video vixens (the ParadisoGirls) materialize, the fellas join them in cyberspace.
Unfortunately, John Hughes passed away just a few weeksbefore this video was released. It would have been interesting to get hisreaction to the interpolation.
I am waiting to confirm whether LMFAO settled on this videotreatment after Hughes' death or if it was already in the works.
At any rate, it was still a good idea. These dudesare hilarious.
