WATCH: Red Hot Chili Peppers release new (NSFW) video filmed in Bensonhurst

Move over, Hollywood.

American rock group the Red Hot Chili Peppers released a new music video this week in which the group’s lead singer, Anthony Kiedis, dons white paint and struts his stuff down the streets of Bensonhurst.

The music video, directed by Tota Lee and set to the tune of the band’s latest release — a song called “Go Robot” — is a (potentially not-safe-for-work) tribute to the 1977 hit film “Saturday Night Fever” that features shots of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the D train and, of course, Lenny’s Pizza.

“We’ve come a very long way since ‘Saturday Night Fever’ but seeing that majestic Verrazano Bridge and grabbing a few slices from Lenny’s never gets old,” said local resident and music junkie Justin Brannan. “I wish [the band’s bassist] Flea had shot me a text to let me know he was gonna be in town, I would’ve shown him around.”

“Go Robot” appears on the Chili Peppers’ new album, The Getaway, which was produced by Danger Mouse and released in June.

This is the band’s first release since 2011.
