Hey, does anybody know whether the Black Eyed Peas are robots? Anyone? Fergie? Oh, there she is, shouting, “WE’RE NOT ROBOTS!” in the dramatic clip that introduces the Peas’ new video. Glad to have that cleared up.
While themselves 100 percent human, however, the Black Eyed Peas are friends with robots, as anyone who watched the Grammys this year knows. Hence the conflict that drives the epic 10-minute-plus video for this new “Imma Be”/”Rock That Body” megamix. Click play below to see Fergie strutting down a desert road surrounded by freaky reptiles, followed by an insane battle between the Peas, their robot friends, and some less friendly robot bad guys. Since the Peas are not violent types, their main weapon in this video is some sort of b-boy ray gun that makes its victims involuntarily pop and lock. I won’t spoil all the action-packed plot twists for you, but suffice it to say that I am now convinced will.i.am should direct the next Transformers movie.
Speaking of Will, he thinks this is “the best video black eyed peas ever made.” He might be right! Also, toward the end of the song, he raps, “Why don’t you put it on a blog?” Done and done. Check out the high-quality “Imma Be Rocking That Body” video below via DipDive, or try a low-res rip on YouTube if you don’t have the bandwidth to spare. Then let us know what you think of the video in the comments, below. Also feel free to speak up if you have an opinion on the whole “are they robots?” question.
