Wanna See Hip Hop In A Honky Tonk Weird Science Style?
Colt, who grew up an avid fan of the motion picture Weird Science, has wanted to incorporate the film's quirky sense of humor into a music video for years. He adds, "This song is about having my style of music accepted in the honky tonks, so by incorporating a storyline as silly—yet appropriate—as Weird Science, Kevin and I had a chance to really have fun with it!"
A 1985 cult classic, Weird Science focuses on two unpopular teenagers who continuously fail at all attempts to be accepted by their peers. Their desperation to be liked leads them to "create" a woman via their computer. Their living and breathing creation is Lisa, the gorgeous woman whose sole purpose is to boost their confidence level by putting them into situations which require Gary and Wyatt to act like men. It is this scene in particular that is played out in the music video for "Hip Hop In A Honky Tonk," only instead of creating just one woman, Colt and Kevin create an entire dance party!
The video--directed by Wes Edwards (director of Brooks & Dunn's "Put A Girl In It," Jason Aldean's "Amarillo Sky," among others) and produced by Shannon Houchins--was shot in Nashville, Tennessee and features Colt and Kevin as Gary and Wyatt, respectively.
