Duck Sauce, aka DJ duo Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, recently released a video for its newest single, "Barbra Streisand." While the song is funkalicious on its own, the video takes it to a whole new level, with a cornucopia of celebrity appearances.
Video: Duck Sauce, "Barbra Streisand"
The video starts with a Barbra Streisand impersonator proclaiming, "If there is any place in this world that you want to come to be able to make it big, or to go after your dreams it is New York City." Thus it comes as no surprise that the video, with its flashing street scenes, could be considered an homage to NYC.
Although the Streisand is fake, Duck Sauce delivers with appearances by real-life artists Pharrell Williams, Ryan Leslie, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend, Kanye West, Questlove, Santigold and Chromeo, to name just a few. Talk about friends in high places.
