It would appear that Amy Schumer was thirsty for her own version of Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” Schumer and Goldie Hawn have released a new video parodying “Lemonade’s” closing song “Formation,” Pitchfork reports.
The video, entitled “Get in Formation,” features Schumer and Hawn lip-syncing to Beyoncé’s “Formation” and performing a similarly provocative dance routine, though comparison of the pair’s moves to Beyoncés is probably a bit of a stretch. “Get in Formation,” which includes farm animals and a Chihuahua, is not the first “Formation” parody video, as Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden have also done similar versions. Schumer’s video is also reminiscent of Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim’s parody of Kanye West’s “Famous.”
On a more serious note, Schumer recently appeared alongside Meryl Streep, Lena Dunham, Amber Tamblyn, Rose McGowan, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Martha Plimpton in a video responding to Donald Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” video, in which the Republican presidential candidate was recorded talking about sexually assaulting women, something Trump described as “locker-room talk.” The new video directed by Liz Garbus, called “It’s Not Okay,” consists primarily of women describing their experiences with rape and sexual assault.
