Music sample

"Sexy and I Know It" is a song by American duo LMFAO from their second studio album, Sorry for Party Rocking. It was released as the third single from the album on 16 September 2011. The song was written by Stefan Kendal Gordy, GoonRock, Erin Beck, George M. Robertson and Kenneth Oliver, and it was produced by Party Rock. It went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on January 7, 2012[2] and remained there for two weeks.[3]

The song became LMFAO's second number one hit (after "Party Rock Anthem") on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, making them the first duo to have two successive number-one singles since OutKast's "Hey Ya!" (2003) and "The Way You Move" (2004).[4] The song also reached number one in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and charted within the top 10 in nearly every country in which it charted. The song was featured in the season 5, episode 12 of Gossip Girl.[5] and in the Glee episode, "The Spanish Teacher".

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Sexy and I Know It" was filmed in Venice, California, and uploaded on LMFAO's YouTube channel on September 16, 2011.[6] It features Redfoo and a group of men including Hok from Quest Crew, The Shuffle Bot, and Q dancing around town in Speedos in front of women. In several scenes it shows Redfoo lifting weights. Chelsea Korka, Ron Jeremy, Wilmer Valderrama, Alistair Overeem, Victor Kim, Steve Terada, Jamie Foxx, Lola Blanc, Ryan Conferido, Hokuto "Hok" Konishi, Roseanne Barr, Ryan Feng of Quest Crew, Mindy Robinson of Take Me Out, Angelo Marconi, Darren Mabee, Darla George, and Simon Rex all have cameos in the video. One of the more memorable scenes is that of Redfoo, Q, the Shuffle Bot, and members of Quest Crew having a "wiggle off" with the "@SkysNuts" group. After the wiggle off, it shows Redfoo taking off his speedo with another one under it and SkyBlu getting a baseball bat and trying to hit Redfoo with it. After that, a variety of people from throughout the video are seen walking down a table surrounded by a crowd doing various things, along with people taking off their pants, dancing, and a man shaking his abdomen. The music video on YouTube was flagged for sexual content. The final shot of the video pays homage to the final shot of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video: it shows the Shuffle Bot leaving with the girls while it turns its head towards the camera behind it and the image freezes.
