The “This Is America” parody free-for-all continues. Following recent feminist and Nigerian takes on Childish Gambino’s searing hit and its accompanying video (not to forget this Carly Rae Jepsen mashup), video game smash Fortnite is the latest inspiration for an alternative take on the visual.
As seen above, YouTube channel WiziBlimp has hilariously remade the Hiro Murai-directed music video within the Fortnite universe, from the warehouse setting to Fortnite characters’ “alternative” versions on the original video’s dance moves. We don’t remember seeing “Gangnam Style” rodeo moves or the robot in the original, at least.
As the music plays on, familiar scenes of guns and violence unfold among the dancing. It’s all a little surreal if you’re a fan of Gambino or Fornite, but it’s entertaining nonetheless. Click the play button above to watch.
Elsewhere in the music world, Drake is reportedly uncredited for writing Kanye West’s “Yikes” hook. More on that here.
