Christopher Walken in Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice”
Christopher Walken is the sole star of Fatboy Slim’s video for his song “Weapon of Choice.” Directed by Spike Jonze, the video takes place in the LA Hotel, and began with the actor sitting in a lobby chair looking tired and bored. As music started to play on a housekeeping cart’s radio, Walken became engaged with the music, at first by subtle head movements that evolved into a lively dance routine, complete with some flying throughout the empty hotel. Walken was actually a trained dancer in musical theater prior to his acting career, so he was perfect for the video. “Weapon of Choice” won six MTV Video Music Awards in 2001, and Walken even took home his very own Moonman for Best Choreography.
