While the “Pitch Perfect” mash-up at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards was pretty awesome, it wasn’t quite the same without Anna Kendrick there to lead the Barden Bellas. Fortunately for all you “Pitch Perfect” fans out there, a music video has now been released that shows Kendrick starring in a music video for “Cups.” Spoiler alert: it’s awesome.
Kendrick’s performance of the cups while singing Lulu and the Lampshades’ “You’re Gonna Miss Me” a cappella was one of the highlights of “Pitch Perfect,” and she somehow makes it that much better here. Instead of playing Beca, Kendrick portrays a small-town waitress who works at a restaurant and is longing for a better life.
What’s most impressive about this video is the way that everyone who starred in it learned how to do the cup trick. The best moment comes when the camera pulls back and shows the entire restaurant performing in sync; it’s pretty impressive. Who cares that “Pitch Perfect” came out back in October? We’re happy to have this video now regardless of how belated it is.
For those of you who haven’t seen “Pitch Perfect” yet,
go do that now check out the video of Kendrick’s cups performance below.
