A few weeks back we reported that out of nowhere, Sisqo was priming a remake of his iconic 1999 single, “Thong Song,” alongside Norwegian trio JCY. We leapt with joy, then scratched our heads, and subsequently relished in the fact that a tropical twist on the cult classic wasn’t so bad.
Today, July 19, news of the remake’s official video has come close to breaking the edit, bringing us a scantily clad update on the 1999 single that we weren’t expecting, but are loving nonetheless. Scaling various areas of Los Angeles with a crew of scantily clad swimsuit models, Sisqo confirmed to Buzzfeed that the video was shot whilst he recovered from three dislocated ribs – a fair excuse for the dialed back choreography. The flick captures a nicely updated take on the fun and fancy that made ‘Thong Song’ such an iconic moment 18-years ago.
