As I watched the new Original Cast video for debut single, "What Am I Supposed To Do" I wondered why hasn't this been done before. Naked women being played as instruments. You would think it cliche but as far as I know there hasn't been a video like this. Someone please leave a comment if I'm wrong.
I think most people will either love the Original Cast "What Am I Supposed To Do" song/video or they'll hate it. There will be some people who may be offended by the use of the women in the video and who may not like the song. I, however, am not offended and fall into the "Love It" category. The women look pretty content as mics, guitars, keys, drums and the boys are probably having the time of their lives. Some would call this art.
Before listening to the song, I knew of the "naked women being played as musical instruments" concept, and at first thought "well here's a gimmick, the song probably won't be that great." After viewing the video I listened to "What Am I Supposed To Do" on it's own (without the strange distraction). The song rocks and I think that it could end up as the UK summer anthem if radio gets a hold of it and Original Cast and their street teams play their cards right.
The lads from Essex, England are scheduled to release "What Am I Supposed To Do" July 30th, 2007 in the UK.
You can find the uncensored version of the video on Metacafe. Just do a search for Original Cast "What Am I Supposed To Do" once on the site. The video is also on their website.
