By now, we’ve seen that the “Jersey Shore” kids know their way around the gym, the laundromat and the tanning salon. But since they’ve become reality-show superstars in their own right, they’ve been picking up a few new skills.
Case in point: their starring roles in Enrique Iglesias’ music video for “I Like It,” the club-ready single from the Jersey Shore Soundtrack. Snooki, the Situation and their pals are featured in the video — crashing a concert, obviously — and MTV News was there to catch all the behind-the-scenes details.
“When everybody sees this music video, they’re pretty much gonna realize that we’re a bunch of nut jobs, just trying to crash Enrique’s concert,” Snooki told us.
No offense, Snooki, but didn’t we already know that? Catch any “Shore” episode and you’ll see all manner of brawls, shameless hookups and wicked pranks. All that behavior is on full display in the video. And we’re about to get a fresh dose of Snooki and the Situation’s wild world when the second season of the show debuts July 29. Before then, MTV will debut 10 minutes of the first new episode during the MTV Movie Awards pre-show this Sunday.
Next month, on July 20, Jersey Shore Soundtrack hits shelves. A collection of songs inspired by the tanned-and-terrific hit series, the album features tracks from Lil Jon, LMFAO, Taio Cruz and Akon, as well as Iglesias single featuring Pitbull.
Iglesias had a blast shooting the video with Snooki and her friends, and he can’t wait until fans get a chance to check out the video. They will, of course, when it premieres on Sunday night at the Movie Awards. “This song is good — actually, not good, it’s f—ing good,” Iglesias said. “Let’s go out there and have some fun. It’s the kids from the ‘Jersey Shore.’ What else would you ask for?”
