Taika Waititi just claimed his crown as best hubby by making a cinematic masterpiece of a music vid for his wife Rita Ora, and of course, it’s entertaining and sure to give you a good giggle.
Rita’s new song 'Praising You' - a rework of the 90s hit 'Praise You' by Fatboy Slim - is out now, and let me tell you, it's a bloody banger! But that's not all, it also has an incredibly entertaining music video directed by the one and only Taika.
The Kiwi director brought his unique style and classic Kiwi humour to the table while making his wife shine like the main character she is.
Sharing the vid, Taika explained: “All That Jazz meets 8 Mile meets Fame meets Spike's original video. In honour of the amateur with a dream, this video embraces and praises the beauty of just doing something because it's your passion and it makes you happy.”
He added: “Collaborating with my lady friend @ritaora makes me happy.”
Posting to Instagram Rita shared her love for Fatboy writing: “Such an honour to re-imagine one of my favourite songs!!”
If you're a fan of Fatboy Slim's original hit, you'll love what Rita Ora has done with it. She's given it a fresh new sound while keeping the catchy beat that made it so popular in the first place.
Speaking on the collab Rita told NME: “To not only get [Fatboy Slim’s] stamp of approval but to actually collaborate with him and pay homage to such a massive song from my childhood was truly a surreal experience.”
“I THINK THIS RECORD MEANS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE, BUT FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, IT’S ABOUT PRAISING YOUR LOVED ONES AND REALLY CELEBRATING THOSE RELATIONSHIPS.”
She added: “I’m incredibly honoured that we get to breathe new life into the song and re-introduce it to a whole new generation.”
You can just tell the vibes were high while on the set from this BTS look from Rita’s TikTok.
So turn up the volume, dance like nobody's watching, and let Rita Ora, Taika Waititi and Fatboy Slim add a little joy to your life.
