Anna Kendrick mugs her way through a diner in new 'Cups' video
The Pitch Perfect craze isn’t over yet. Not only did much of the cast reunite to perform at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, but star Anna Kendrick (who was not at the ceremony) has just released a new video for her surprise hit single “Cups.”
As we reported in February, Universal Music remixed Kendrick’s tumbler-tapping tune for pop radio, giving it a lush, acoustic sound to fill out her sweet, folky vocal. The original version of the track has already reached No. 66 on the Billboard Hot 100, but perhaps the remixed tune and new music video, directed by Pitch Perfect helmer Jason Moore, will help the song reach a new peak.
In the beautifully shot clip, Kendrick plays a battered (literally!) cook at a small diner, where she spends her days rolling out biscuits and dreaming of a trip to somewhere tropical and sunny. As she skips through the restaurant, the video morphs into an all out extravaganza of rhythmic and progressively more intricate cup jams, which are choreographed impressively.
