Snoop Dogg Teases Out-of-This-World 'California Roll' Video With Pharrell & Stevie Wonder
As if the combination of Snoop Dogg, Pharrell and Stevie Wonder wasn't enough on the new Bush track "California Roll," now video director Warren Fu has teamed up with the crew for a totally insane looking video.
In a new teaser video released Tuesday, we see an ultimate mashup of genres and styles, blending 1940s World's Fair retro style with futurism, robots and Egyptian pyramids in Los Angeles. The full video stars Nia Long, who you might remember from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and comes out in full Wednesday.
Watch the teaser here:
Director Warren Fu (who's worked on video jems previously with Daft Punk, The Killers, The Strokes and others) told Noisey about the project: "Because it was three superstars I was aiming for 'event video' vibes. The kind of pop culture thing like when MJ would shut down prime time for his premieres. My initial concept was a spin on Star Tours. It was Pharrell's idea to make the LA futuristic-Egyptian hybrid, and Snoop's idea to make the actual ride take place in the 40s—which then takes them on a journey into the future.
"After the phone call my team was like: 'Oooookay. How the hell are we gonna do all this?"
