Pentatonix Team Up With Paramount For Ninja Turtle-themed Ode To Pizza
The YouTube musicians partnered up with Paramount to release a very special video.
In the run-up to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, youtube a capella quintet Pentatonix have released a new video, celebrating Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo. And also pizza, which the internet always appreciates.
Turtles? Pizza? This video could not get any better, basically.
It’s only a minute and thirty seconds long, but in that time, the group manage to run through movie footage, some complicated choreography, a short (but awesome) verse by Kevin Olusola and a full-on pizza appreciation moment, obviously.
Check out the video below.
The video was filmed at Paramount Studios and the dingy street look was achieved with plenty of fog machines, street lights and night filming, as you do.
“The ideas is we’re kind of riffing of the turtles,” said director Melissa Bolton-Klinger in a behind the scenes clip. Dark alleyway scenes, kind of West Side Story meets ninjas.” If that didn't make you want to watch the video, nothing will.
So basically, if you’re in the mood for some turtle-related action, check out the ear-wormy video. You should probably order pizza ahead of time, by the way, since you’ll be craving some by the end of the song anyway. The movie hits theaters in the US on August 8 and in the UK on Octover 17. Sorry, UK TMNT fans.
