Anna to be in LCD Music Video!

Anna will be in LCD Soundystem‘s music video for their song “Pow Pow” !

MTV has a new video interview with Anna where she talks about how she started working with the British electro-dance group – she is shooting the video now! :


To follow up the quirky, yet warm and fuzzy (because it’s full of guys in panda suits) video for “Drunk Girls,” LCD Soundsystem have enlisted some top-notch talent for their second video off This Is Happening, “Pow Pow.” James Murphy and company have David Ayer (“Training Day”) in the director’s chair, along with Oscar-nominated actress Anna Kendrick as their clip’s ingénue.

MTV News was lucky enough to visit the Los Angeles set of the video recently, where we chatted with Kendrick about how she came to be a fan of the British electro-dance group, as well as the star of “Pow Pow.”

“I didn’t have their new album,” Kendrick admitted. “But this song is really cool too. The first time [I heard it], I was expecting straight-up melody or something. … I can hear it every time we do a take, in my head. I’m kind of grooving. I can’t help but groove to this song.”

Kendrick added that she’s a “pretty lame dancer,” but that the opportunity was too good to pass up.

“It sort of came out of nowhere,” she said of getting the gig. “David [Ayer] came up with this idea and asked me to do it. I’ve never done anything like this at all, so I was really excited about it. It’s been really fun.”

The “Up in the Air” and “Twilight” actress said her character in the video is just a normal, unassuming girl, but she’s surrounded by enormous bodyguards, and the viewer isn’t really sure why. Kendrick added that Ayer encouraged her to turn to a Hollywood classic for inspiration.

“He told me to watch ‘Sunset Boulevard,’ ” she said. “He used that as a reference as what’s going on underneath this girl.”

Stay tuned for more from our visit to the set of “Pow Pow” and news on when you might expect to see the finished clip. {MTV}

I’m having trouble viewing the video, can anyone else see it? At any rate, it will be added to the archive along with caps ASAP :).

  1. I know right? :(. Maybe they meant to release it later or something? MTV holds things a lot of the time and releases them when news is slow, or breaks interviews down into different parts to get more hits *rolls eyes*. Love your comments btw Laura :).
