Moby posted the casting call on his website with a list of roles up for grabs. Among them are "a drunk king" (a guy with a beard, basically), "S&M gimp rhythmic gymnist" (ribbon-dancing skills preferred), eight roller skating ghosts (not roller bladers), a punk rock brass band and "20 random party goers who are comfortable with nudity."

Those interested in the nude party-goer slots ought to be "freaky fun, people who are cool with dancing and getting naked. Existing costumes and skills a plus like hula hoopers, crunk dancers, various random talents, jugglers etc, trick rope twirlers, stuff of that weird talent show speciality nature a plus."

He added, "p.s-these are real requests."

The video shoot will take place August 10th in L.A.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
