The infamous music video for “Freestyler” by Bomfunk MC’s just got a 2019 remake and it’s pretty damn epic!

 

Finland – 20 years ago, the music video for Bomfunk MC’s “Freestyler” was released and immediately became a smash hit. Now, 20 years later… the music video has just been given an epic remake by Belgian company Telenet.

“Freestyler” is a song by Finnish hip hop group Bomfunk MC’s. It was released in Finland in October 1999 as the third single from their debut studio album “In Stereo”, and released internationally in February 2000. It was a worldwide success, topping the charts in Sweden, Germany, Greece, Australia, Norway, New Zealand, Austria, Switzerland, Turkey, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. It also peaked at number two in Denmark, Iceland and the United Kingdom and number three in Ireland.

For the twentieth anniversary in 2019 a new music video was produced featuring the original band members, with updates to reflect developments in technology and culture. It’s filled with modern culture, entertainment, memes and internet sensation easter eggs. The central figure is now a girl (Milica Bajčetić) with a mobile phone, with various Belgian YouTuber cameo appearances.

The new video was sponsored by communications provider Telenet (Belgium) to promote a new mobile phone service.
