Remember way back to five seconds ago when everyone in the universe couldn’t stop talking about Slumdog Millionaire, and Oscars (eight of ’em!) fell out of the sky, and even Angelina Jolie was clamoring to chat up Dev Patel (careful or she’ll adopt you!), and editors everywhere were beside themselves with punny glee (Underdog Millionaire! Slumlord Millionaire! Slam-dunk Millionaire!)
Well NATURALLY that all lends itself to the Pussycat Dolls taking “Jai Ho” — the Hindi song that the cast dances to during the movie’s big Bollywood ending — and putting their sexier, breathier, more Pussycat-ier spin on it.
Appointed in bindis, scarves, and mock-saris, the Pussycat Dolls recorded their interpretation of “Jai Ho” and shot the video in Vienna at the time that songwriter A. R. Rahman won two Oscars for his work this past February.
