When you think about Orange Is The New Black/ How To Get Away With Murder actor Matt McGorry you might not immediately think “Dance Music Video Star.” But Peking Duk, the duo made up of Aussies Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, must have seen his viral dance moves when it came to casting for their new music video for “Say My Name,” which EW is delighted to premiere below.
“The casting was without a doubt the biggest obstacle in our heads when brainstorming,” Hyde and Styles said via email. “Then Matt McGorry came up. We weren’t aware of how brilliant this man was on the dancing front, yet we were excited to proceed and see what would happen. All our hopes and expectations were absolutely blown out of the park. Matt was hands down the best man for the job and took our initial vision to new heights the minute he rocked up to the set.”
McGorry was equally enthusiastic about the experience. “Filming this video was insanely fun,” he told EW.”‘Say My Name’ is totally infectious and a great to get pumped to, whether you’re getting ready to go out on a Saturday night or trying to wake up for work on Monday morning. The guys themselves are awesome as well! Their humor, energy, and overall vibe was a perfect fit for this collaboration. Don’t attempt to recreate this at home.”
Check the video and one hell of a mullet out below.
“Say My Name” is off Peking Duk’s debut EP, the appropriately-titled Songs To Sweat To. The duo have had a stacked 2015 with sets at SXSW, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Electric Zoo and are about to hit Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas.
