"Sorry for Party Rocking" is a song by American duo LMFAO from their second studio album of the same name. It was released as the fourth and final single from the album on January 17, 2012, and was the group's last before their announcement of an indefinite hiatus on September 2012. The song was written and produced by Redfoo and Erin Beck.
In an interview with the Irish channel TG4, Redfoo stated that they are working on the video for the song. Before this song was released as a single, Redfoo also said that "Sorry for Party Rocking" was a crowd favorite. The official video was uploaded to VEVO on February 21, 2012. The video was directed by Mickey Finnegan and is the prequel to "Party Rock Anthem".
The video begins when an old man named Rufus is complaining to his wife, Agnes, that LMFAO and the Party Rock Crew are partying too much next door of their house, as Rufus and Agnes are getting ready for bed for the night. Rufus decides to go over next door to tell them to stop. Rufus scolds RedFoo and the Party Rock Crew, and when he asks them to explain about their behavior, RedFoo and the Party Rock Crew reply to Rufus with the title song and later continue dancing as Rufus immediately calls the police.
At the beginning of the song, the police start driving through the city in cardboard cars. It later shows SkyBlu driving through the city with Chelsea Korka and the other women. The video returns to RedFoo and the Party Rock Crew still partying in the 'Party Rock' house. The police and several other people across the city later get invited into the 'Party Rock' house and also start partying. Rufus then goes again into the Party Rock Crew's residence to stop them. However, when he sees Agnes join the crowd to party, Rufus angrily leaves. As the party continues, RedFoo gets drunk, rushed to the hospital, and accidentally drops his iPhone. A man wearing a turtle-backpack eventually finds RedFoo's iPhone, connects it with his headphone, and begins shuffling to "Party Rock Anthem". According to the opening caption of "Party Rock Anthem", it is revealed that RedFoo and SkyBlu fell into a coma due to excessive party rocking. The video ends with RedFoo and SkyBlu in a deserted hospital where "Party Rock Anthem" will begin.
At the start, while the person driving the ambulance receives the radio message, and one of the dance scenes, the patient is wearing a prop which appears to be an arrow lodged into his kneecap, a reference to the Skyrim meme, Arrow to The Knee.
The smiley face on RedFoo's underwear at the end resembles the same one used to censor "Sexy and I Know It"'s music video on television stations.
Christopher "Kid" Reid makes a cameo appearance at the end of the video, ironically to scold the people at the party.
The YouTube comedy duo Rhett and Link make appearances in the music video, mostly during the dance scenes. To add to that, the dancing zebra that they had featured in their famous video "Dope Zebra" appears briefly. The zebra is later referenced when Reid describes the party attenders as "raping zebras".
In 2013, Welsh post-hardcore band The Blackout recorded a cover version as a bonus track on their fourth studio album Start the Party. Comedy rapper Rucka Rucka Ali released a parody, "I'm a Dirty Iraqi", on his 2012 album Rucka's World.
