A capella group Pentatonix joins the fun ahead of the release of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" which takes place this week. On Monday, August 4, the quintet dropped a music video for their song "We Are Ninjas" which is inspired by the Megan Fox-starring movie.
Shot at Paramount Pictures, the 1-and-a-half minute clip shows the members singing about saving the day and showing pizza appreciation. "Long before our days begins / What every heroes need / Is a big O greasy pizza," they sing.
The members also dance a bit in the short video. They are joined by 25 dancers for a big scene on the street.
"The ideas is we're kind of riffing of the turtles," director Melissa Bolton-Klinger said of the music video's concept in a behind-the-scene clip. "Dark alleyway scenes, kind of West Side Story meets ninjas."
In addition to Fox, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" stars Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek and Will Arnett among others. The Jonathan Liebesman-directed movie is slated to open in U.S. theaters on August 8.
