That's Not Rajinikanth! Black Eyed Peas New MV Features Action Scenes From 'Enthiran' And 'Singam'
You know how Indian movies have the most outrageous, most extra, most out-there action scenes, well, looks like someone from the Black Eyed Peas absolutely loves it!

Their latest music video for the song 'Action' uses deep fake technology to "superimpose" BEP members into action scenes from various Kollywood and Bollywood movies.

The outcome? Super crazy coolness!

Released five days ago and amassing more than 4 million views so far, the description for the music video on YouTube states "The Black Eyed Peas have been inspired by Indian culture from the beginning of our career... From Asha Bhosle to A.R Rahman, Indian music has influenced our songs on more than one occasion."

"This video for ACTION shows our LOVE and appreciation for BOLLYWOOD and the imagination and awesomeness it brings to the screen... Thank you INDIA & BOLLYWOOD!!!"

Outrageous action

Popular scenes featured in the video include action sequences from Rajinikanth's 'Enthiran' and scenes from Rohit Shetty's 'Singam' starring Ajay Devgn.

Blasting every evil person off the face of the earth!

Other scenes which were edited into the video clip include those from Maryada Ramanna (2010), Robot (2010), Ambala (2015) and KOPPS (2003).

As mentioned by the group, this is not the first time that Bollywood has influenced their art. 

BEP's hit song Don't Phunk With My Heart actually sampled two Bollywood songs, Yeh Mera Dil  (Don) and Ae Naujawan (Apradh).

The song got the group their first Grammy Award for Best Rap Perfomance By A Duo Or Group in 2005.

Pretty cool!
