The Verge: “Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty succeed in making me want to live at Target”

From The Verge:

Last night’s Grammy Awards were 100 hours long and rife with injustice, including an all-too-predictable Album of the Year snub for Beyoncé’s Lemonade, a boy pop-punk duo taking off their pants in public, and an inexplicable zero nominations for Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion Side B.

 

However, there was one bright spot that nearly alleviated the sting of the other awful stuff: a Target commercial! Congratulations to capitalism, the real winner of the night. Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty starred in an elaborate musical ad choreographed by La La Land’s Mandy Moore, directed by Mozart in the Jungle creator Roman Coppola, and produced by hip-hop hitmaker Mike WiLL Made-It. They twirled around with dryer sheets and emoji pillows while performing a sticky sweet remix of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s 1988 party song “It Takes Two.”

Billboard: Behind the Scenes of the “It Takes Two” Music Video

From Billboard.com:

You can add Lil Yachty and Carly Rae Jepsen to the Grammy Awards’ list of all-star collaborations. Though this one isn’t happening at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, it’s going down in a Target.

 

The retail giant has paired the duo with producer Mike WiLL Made-It, director Roman Coppola and choreographer Mandy Moore of La La Land fame for what promises to be an epic three minute commercial spot that will air during the Grammy Awards. In it, they will reinvent the Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock classic “It Takes Two” with amidst a full on spectacle that’s basically everything you wish your trips to the department store were. -Colin Stutz
