Hot Video Alert: Ke$ha - Blow
Unicorns, rainbows and James Van Der Beek wearing a bra. Who knew Ke dollar sign ha had such a sense of humor? In the video for new single, "Blow," Ke$ha and James Van Der Beek (playing himself) go head to head in an all out rainbow glitter war of epic proportions. Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, the very tongue and cheek video places the famous "Tik Tok"-singing heroine in the middle of one of the most bizarre black tie cocktail parties ever, where the only other guests (besides Van Der Beek) are a room full of unicorns. Ke$ha looks glamorous as ever in a slinky black dress and matching black pumps, complete with little guns on the toes (How very Ms. Frizzle 2011 of her!) while Van Der Beek looks dashingly handsome in his classic black tuxedo. The two stars do a sexy little dance around one another before meeting in the middle for a bit of dialogue. You gotta hand it to James Van Der Douche for making himself available for this video. The actor's very presence is only aided by his deprecating sense of humor.
"Blow" is the second single to be lifted off of Ke$ha's Cannibal EP, following "We R Who We R," which went straight to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released last fall. Produced by a team of talented super-producers including Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Benny Blanco and Kool Kojak, the single follows the same electro club sound as all of Ke$ha's previous releases. While Ke$ha's vocals have been Auto-tuned to hell the stomping electro beats pulsing throughout the song are as infectious as ever. After it's release in early February, the single peaked at #32 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #19 on the Billboard Pop Songs charts. Check out the amazing video in all it's glory below and download "Blow" on iTunes HERE.
