Imma Be Rockin That Body
So here is yet another video (or double video should i say) from The E.N.D. era of the Black Eyed Peas. Now even though I think the album is pretty solid and damn fun to listen to, I have you to really be blown away by any of the videos yet. While visually they've been eye catching (but the Black Eyed Peas have always had visually dope videos), To me they've all just kinda been random with lackluster dancing. Nonetheless i had high hopes for this video because it was a combo of two of my fave tracks off the album. The Imma Be video was a big let down in my view, there was nothing really spectacular about it to me and if it were a standalone video it would've been whack but since it led into the Rock Your Body video it served it's purpose. The Rock Your Body video started at about the 5 minute mark and that's when the video picked up. I liked the concept of the Peas going around blasting everyone with shockwaves from these speaker guns they had and it was really cool to see some people from past seasons of So You Think You Can Dance amongst the dancers. But once again there was just a lot going on on the screen and no real balance. I would've much rather seen them do a group choreo rather than having a bunch of random dancing going on. While I'm sure it was fun as hell on the set it just didn't translate well on to the screen to me. Also the giant robot battle at the end just looked bad to me, you can tell that they had two actual dancers battle each other in motion capture suits but in their robot forms the dancing just looked stuff and awkward. While this isn't a bad video (it's the best one that they've made off their new album to me) it's just nothing amazing once again. I'd like to hear what you guys think of it and if you agree or disagree with me. Till next time ladies n gents, Rock on from Krypton.
