Red Hot Chili Peppers launch Go Robot video
Watch the Red Hot Chili Peppers spoof Saturday Night Fever in their video for Go Robot
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released a video for their track Go Robot, which sees them spoofing classic disco movie Saturday Night Fever.
Anthony Kiedis returns to near-nakedness for the track from latest album The Getaway, which was launched in June.
Ahead of its release, the frontman revealed the band had scrapped their first attempt at the follow-up to 2011’s I’m With You after hiring Danger Mouse as producer.
Kiedis said in May: “We wrote 20 to 30 songs and it was all ready to go. Then Flea went snowboarding and broke his arm real bad.
“When the dust settled, Danger Mouse emerged and said, ‘Let’s go make a record.’ We were like, ‘Great, we have all these songs!’ He was like, ‘Leave those there. Let’s go write new songs in the studio.’ So the process began over again.
“The only way we saw this working was to trust him – get rid of our old ideas and our old way of doing things.”
Bassist Flea said in June that he’d feared his accident had ended his career, adding: “I was snowboarding with Anthony and we ran into Lars Ulrich. I said to Lars, ‘We should take a picture of one of us lying in the snow, all misshapen and stuff, and trick our management company that one of us broke our leg.’
“We were laughing about it – and literally 40 seconds later I just wiped out so bad.”
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are currently touring Europe. They return to the UK in December, with support from Babymetal.
