Jamie Foxx has been working that actor-singer synergy for years, but no way was I prepared for the kind of Hollywood favors he called in for his new music video. The song’s called “Blame It” — short for “blame it on the alcohol” — and it features guest vocals from jack-of-all-hooks T-Pain, who is perhaps the seventh or eighth most famous person who appears in this clip. Check it out below to witness Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Howard, and other random luminaries sipping expensive champagne in the club with Mr. Foxx and Mr. Pain. Wait…Ron Howard?! Yup. Apparently this is what he does in his spare time between directing thinking person’s popcorn flicks. (I’m also going to go ahead and assume that that’s old Opie getting down in the panda costume at 1:50 and later.)

“Blame It” is a catchy tune, and the visuals here are pretty cool, too, thanks to auteur Hype Williams. But this video is all about the stunt casting, which is just wonderful. In the clip below, you’ll see BET host Terrence J saying how much he wishes he could have been at this party. Me too, Terrence, me too. Anyone else in awe?
