One…..Million…Dollars! dun, dun, DUN! Too corny for an intro? Yes. But you can’t deny that Dr. Evil is one of the greatest villains of all time. The Austin Powers series of films has become a cornerstone of pop culture with many of its catchphrases and references being used throughout the years.
Hip-hop was not safe from its influence as Ludacris parodied the film series in his video for the song “Number 1 Spot”. It would seem that KSI would follow in the Atlanta-native’s footsteps; taking it to another comedic level as only JJ can.
The video is incredibly funny and entertaining has KSI does his best to get through the shooting of a ridiculous video concept that he is not happy with. KSI’s frustrating commentary, coupled with the elusive and playful dismissal of the video’s director, makes for comedy gold. KSI brings back a concept that is not usually used in chart-topping videos anymore.
Now trending at #30 on Youtube’s most-watched videos, KSI’s new visual has already garnered 5.4 Million views in just a few days. Make no mistake, the boxing champ is definitely here to stay.
