'Pitch Perfect' cast and fans duet on video version of Nicki Minaj's 'Starships'
Universal and YouTube star Mike Tompkins gathered over 300 user-generated videos, including some from amateur singers, beat-boxers and dancers from all over the world for video as a tie-in to the upcoming "Pitch Perfect." The footage was cut together with clips of the film's cast -- including Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Adam DeVine, Anna Camp and Brittany Snow -- singing along, and mugging for the camera.
Like Tompkins' other popular YouTube clips, all the songs' sounds were made a cappella.
Watch the new "Starships" below.
It has a lot in common with the recent Dave Matthews Band video for "Mercy."
Like "Glee" and "Rock of Ages," "Pitch Perfect" is a jukebox musical centering on Beca ("50/50's" Kendrick), a new college student who strikes up a relationship with an eclectic group of girls who would rather sing pop hits the hit the books.
