Well, when we caught up with Ed at KIIS-FM’s annual Wango Tango concert on Saturday (May 10), he revealed he’s dropping the video for his lead Multiply single this week — and things are about to get really weird.
“The concept is The Muppets going out on a night out with a bunch of Korean business men who sing karaoke and then kidnapping me and Pharrell and taking us to that karaoke bar,’ Ed explained. “Oh, and there’s also a bunch of strippers in it. It’s really weird, really weird, I don’t know what I was on.”
Clearly that’s a lot to take in, but it may not be as weird as you think. Now, we understand why Pharrell is in the video, since he is the producer for “Sing,” but Ed also has a connection to the Muppets.
Back in October of 2013, Ed was spotted “hanging with his friends Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and the Cookie Monster.” The singer filmed a guest spot on “Sesame Street” for an episode that will air in September, so maybe they just wanted to return the favor?
