Avert your eyes, “Dawson’s Creek” diehards: Ke$ha takes aim at the TV drama’s former star James Van Der Beek (who she lovingly refers to as “James Van Der Douche”) in the bizarre, unicorn-filled music video for “Blow,” which premiered today (Feb. 25). Watch the official video here.
After opening with the disclaimer, “No mythological creatures were harmed in the making of this video,” Ke$ha is shown swilling wine at a dinner party and telling a pair of partygoers with unicorn heads about how she became “elected to the parliament of Uzbekistan.” As the pulsating song kicks in, Ke$ha and Van Der Beek eye each other from opposite ends of the dance floor before sharing a feisty exchange about Muenster cheese in the middle. The pair then whip out laser guns and a few unicorns get caught in the crossfire; ultimately, Ke$ha prevails, and hangs the actor’s head on her wall over a placard that reads ‘James Van Der Dead.’
“Blow” is the second single off of Ke$ha’s “Cannibal” EP following the Hot 100-topping “We R Who We R,” which had a music video with just as much pizzazz but a lot less Van Der Beek. Fans of “Blow” will get to hear a remix of the song by Cirkut when Ke$ha releases “I Am the Dance Commander + I Commander You To Dance: The Remix Album” on March 22.
