Ke$ha’s new music video for her song “Blow” opens with this disclaimer: “No mythological creatures were harmed in the making of this video.”
Ke$ha isn’t referring to “Dawson’s Creek” star James Van Der Beek, who makes a cameo in the video, which was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero. She’s referring to the champagne-swilling, hard-partying unicorns that also make an appearance in the video, which takes place at a society party.
Looking glossy and glam in her one-shoulder dress, she tells two unicorns, “I grabbed the bear by the throat, looked him right in the eyes and said, ‘Bear you have until the count of zero to put some pants on and apologize to the president. And that’s the story of how I was elected to the parliament of Uzbekistan.”
She then giggles as she looks into the camera, telling viewers to “dance.” Soon, she locks eyes with Van Der Beek. Ke$ha and Van Der Beek exchange glances as they make their way through the party. Scenes of their longing (and unicorns dancing with one another) are edited with scenes of Ke$ha, in a bodysuit, mugging for the camera, singing the song and kissing more unicorns.
Van Der Beek begins stripping off his suit jacket and dances his way towards the singer, who then pulls off her bra from under her gown. He follows suit, leaving viewers laughing and Ke$ha understandably perplexed about why he wears a bra under his dress shirt.
“Well, well, well … if it isn’t James Van Der Douche,” she says.
“I don’t appreciate you slander-beeking my name,” Van Der Beek replies.
After snipping at one another and trading barbs, they begin shooting lasers at one another in a battle sequence, knocking down and killing rainbow-shooting unicorns in the process. In the end, it’s revealed that Ke$ha has killed the actor and mounted his head on her wall, laughing off the encounter. The plaque in which his head is displayed reads “James Van Der Dead.”
