Music band Black Eyed Peas have released their latest number Action on 7th August. The video is a treat to Bollywood fans as it shows footage from five different movies and combines the faces of Black Eyed Peas band members using deep fake technology.
The music video contains scenes from S Shankar’s Enthiran, Rohit Shetty’s Singham, SS Rajamouli’s Maryada Ramanna, and Sundar C’s Aambala. However, the music video gets more interesting as Rajinikath’s and Ajay Devgn’s faces have been replaced by Will.I.Am and Taboo’s.
Watch the music video here:
Taking to Twitter, Will.i.Am told his fans that he had always been inspired by India and Bollywood.
He tweeted “Check out our video for #ACTION inspired by #BOLLYWOOD…ive always loved music from india…#Elephunk and #MonkeyBusiness were inspired by Indian Culture…thank you india for your vibrancy and contribution to the world.”
Indian oscar-winning composer AR Rahman while replying to Will.i.Am’s tweet, wrote “The borders are blurring through art! #tamilcinema @directorshankar #rajnikant #india.”
The song uses deep fake technology where faces of actors in the movie scenes are replaced by the faces of Will.i.Am and Taboo and one can hardly differentiate if its real or fake. The song also carries a very strong message in the end that requests people not to believe everything they see.
