Musical Interlude: Weapon of Choice (2000)

British DJ/musician Fatboy Slim opted not to appear in the video for his 2000 single, "Weapon of Choice". The track also features funk legend Bootsy Collins, but the star in this video is actor Christopher Walken, who has become a modern day pop culture icon thanks to this video and appearances on Saturday Night Live.

Now, what I can't figure out is why Walken wasn't asked about a feature film biography on Fred Astaire......

I think Slim borrowed the chorus ("You can go with this, or you can go with that") from Black Sheep, as anyone who's seen that Kia Soul commercial would surmise.
