Akon, Fernando & Didier Wage Charitable War With Music & Paint Balls
Pepsi & Akon have released a single for the World Cup – a single which may or may not be the official song via conflicting reports – and the proceeds will go entirely to charity. The track also features Keri Hilson, the Soweto Gospel Choir and “16 other musicians” apparently not quite yet noteworthy. It is, as one super smart sleuth might able to tell by the title, about Africa. Oh.
Fernando Torres & Didier Drogba were asked to kick exploding paint balls against a wall for the shoot, paint balls which then magically formed the faces of football’s biggest superstars in various stages of constipation.
Strangely, they also chose Thierry Henry for the wall. Might be best for the World Cup PR team to simply pretend he’s not even there this go ’round…
Even more strangely, Akon & Didier are BFF’s – didn’t Akon hear that god-awful Drogbacite album? does the man have no musical scruples? oh, wait… – and have collaborated before on some casual dancing.
