Behind 3OH!3's "Starstrukk" Video

June 4, 2009 5:58 PM ET

3OH!3's video for Want's second single "Starstrukk isn't set to debut until Monday, but Rock Daily has an early sneak peek — a behind-the-scenes look at the Boulder, Colorado electrokids' new clip. Named after the 303 area code of their home turf, 3OH!3 first made the pages of Rolling Stone last year when we named the duo, featuring beatmaker Nathaniel Motte and rapper-singer Sean Foreman, one of 2008's Artists To Watch.

By the looks of just one day on set in Los Angeles, the video will feature throngs of girls in fluorescent wardrobe chasing around 3OH!3 and a large clothed orgy with construction workers, a marching band and copious amounts of whipped cream. The clip was directed by Steve O, who says the concept is a bunch of people getting clustered together until they eventually formed a massive dogpile. According to Foreman, "the video is looking awesome."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
