Music videos

3OH!3 running as they are chased by a group consisting of numerous females down a street in the music video for "Starstrukk".

The music video for the song was premiered by AOL on Monday, June 8, 2009.[1] A "behind the scenes" of the music video has been released prior to the release date. It was filmed in Los Angeles, California and directed by Sum 41's drummer, Steve Jocz. According to Rolling Stone, the video will showcase throngs of girls dressed in fluorescent wardrobe chasing 3OH!3, a large clothed orgy with construction workers, a marching band and copious amounts of whipped cream. Director, Stevo says the concept is a bunch of people getting clustered together until the eventually formed a massive dogpile. According to group member, Sean Foreman, "the video is looking awesome."[1]

Sean Foreman commented on the video to an interview with MTV. He said the following:[2]

"There's a mat on the floor and there's liquid spilled all over the place [...] The concept of the video is one that we brainstormed up. It has to do with a dog pile and crazy body parts and hot legs and boobs and football players." "There are all sorts of body fluids involved. Different types. Blood, spit, a couple we can't mention," Motte added. "You're going to see people flying off a doggy pile, like, flying up into the atmosphere, and at the end, it's revealed it's in reverse motion, so it's just people dog-piling on us. It's movie magic, because we're actually not even in the video. They're CGI-ing taller, better looking people in our places. It works out well."

The new music video for "Starstrukk", including Katy Perry, was shot at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum's Rose Garden in Exposition Park on Monday September 21. It features 3OH!3 getting assaulted by a group of girls after stealing their coins from a wishing fountain. Scenes with Katy Perry singing are also intercut. The video was directed by both Marc Klasfeld and Sum 41 drummer Steve Jocz.

The story in the new music video is related to When in Rome, in which several men fall in love with a woman who takes their coins from a wishing fountain in Rome. Starstrukk is featured on the soundtrack of When in Rome.
