The Black Eyed Peas have released a new music video for their song Action, with dramatic fight scenes from several Bollywood action films including S Shankar’s Enthiran, Rohit Shetty’s Singham, and Sundar C’s Aambala.
All of the heroes in the films have been replaced with Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.Am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo through deepfake technology, resulting in an action-packed music video with over-the-top stunts.
Will.i.Am shared on Twitter that he had always been inspired by India and Bollywood. “Check out our video for #Action inspired by #Bollywood…I’ve always loved music from India…” the 45-year-old wrote in the post.
He also revealed that their previous tracks, Elephunk and Monkey Business, were also inspired by Indian culture. "Thank you India for your vibrancy and contribution to the world,” he concluded.
