A group of U.S. soldiers in Iraq have upped the ante in the music video battle against their brethren in Afghanistan. Aspiring filmmaker Codey Wilson and his "elite step team of volunteers" spoofed all the controversy about letting gays serve openly in the military with a fiercely fabulous music video set to Ke$ha's song "Blah Blah Blah."
The safe for work production is a creative mix of intense half-naked dancing, diverse set pieces, and sly looks. Wilson writes,
Don't give us a hard time for this, please? We're just a few good men trying to enjoy ourselves and get this deployment over with. No one is gay... that we know of. Not that there is anything wrong with that! (political correctness) As a young aspiring film maker I was forced to release this early due to our friend in Afghans high school lip sinked music video. You know you love it. Enjoy it. Spread it. Live it. Lastly, ignore the copy cats that will soon follow and keep your taste for original creativity. Much love from the east!
It remains to be seen if this video can top the Lady Gaga "Telephone" remake by the boys in Afghanistan, which went so viral it prompted this heartfelt analysis from the Washington Post..
In the meantime, Wilson requests that you spread this video far and wide. Please do. Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Just Dance.
