Chromeo Wants Kids to Clean Up Their Act

Written by

Columbia’s premier electrofunk group is taking a break from intramural collaborations and filling the Bowery Ballroom to provide a public service announcement to junior hipsters on the popular Nickelodeon show Yo Gabba Gabba!  The topic?  Personal hygiene, of course. 

Stereogum has a video of the band performing their catchy anthem, “Everybody Wash Your Hands (Lather Up)” in a giant sink while Mayan pyramids float in the background and blobby creatures dance for joy.  Oh, childhood.

  1. it's  

    really frustrating that you can't watch the video directly from the bwog. especially since you took a screen shot with the little "play" arrow thing on it.

  6. pyramid  

    The pyramid is actually from Chichen Itza, Guatemala making it Mayan as opposed to Aztec. You were right insomuch as that it isn't Middle Eastern in style.

    Here's a picture of it http://blog.lib.umn.edu/benge005/architecture/pyramid_maya.elcastil.lg.JPG (looks like that's the actual pic they used in the movie). Here's a better pic of it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chichen-Itza-Castillo-Seen-From-East.JPG.
