Sing movie: Katy Perry, Survivor, more covered in Olympics TV spot
There’s nothing like Katy Perry to get you pumped for the Olympics. The latest “go for the gold”-themed TV spot for Sing features a cover of the pop star’s “Roar,” as well as ones for Panic! at the Disco’s “Victorious” and DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win.”
Sing takes place in a world where animals are just like us, including the fact that they have their own American Idol-esque singing competition. Spearheaded by a koala named Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), the challenge brings out five frontrunners: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), an elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a porcupine (Scarlett Johansson).
The film features an eclectic array of songs, and the latest clip is no different. The line from Perry, “I’ve got the eye of the tiger,” is answered later in the preview with a car full of piglets bobbing their heads to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.”
“Just in time for the [Olympics],” Witherspoon tweeted along with the footage. “Good luck USA! Go for gold.”
Sing hits theaters this Christmas. Watch the spot above.
