Chart Mondays: Cheat Codes x Kris Kross Amsterdam - Sex

20 June Critic Jonni 0 Comments



What the hell have I just watched? Using so many objects explicitly, this is just weirdly entertaining and hilarious. This song is currently in the top 10, and since Drake makes it to a 10th consecutive week at the top of the UK charts with "One Dance", matching Rihanna's "Umbrella" record of the 21st Century; my Chart Mondays is open to the top 10. Cheat Codes and Kris Kross Amsterdam revise an old classic, with a highly sexualised music video which takes place in a sex education class, which uses inanimate objects as teaching tools.

Cheat Codes are an American EDM trio of DJs consisting of Trevor Dahl, Kevin Ford and Matthew Russell. This song is their international breakthrough, globally storming the charts around the world. They have released many singles before and after this one, but this is the only current one that has made it big time. In a collaboration with Kris Kross Amsterdam, who are a Dutch DJ trio consisting of Jordy Huisman, Sander Huisman and Yuki Kempees, they formed during a party where they played their own favourite music. The name comes from an ode to the old famous rap duo Kris Kross who became known for the song "Jump". Together they are clearly unstoppable, this song has gained traction on radio in the UK which has got it climbing up the chart. The song was written by Hurby Azor, Galen Behr, Trevor Dahl, Matthew Elifritz, Jordy Huisman, Sander Huisman and Kevin Pederson. It samples Salt-n-Pepa's song "Let's Talk About Sex".

Directed by Chris Campbell, this video is definitely not for kids. The actress, who plays the teacher, is Hayley Ambriz. The students are played by Cheat Codes and Kris Kross Amsterdam and one other student is played by Braxton Goe, apparently (I don't know for sure about the latter though),

The sex education class takes place in the morning for three hours, according to the sign, followed by alcoholics anonymous for eight hours, and then 'kid's night math' between 9pm and 2am, whatever the last study group are up to in that class room, is anyone's guess... Poor kids learning maths at that time, they should be in bed.

Focusing on the first class, we watch this promiscuous teacher who is gorgeously sexy, teach a bunch of lads on sex using various inanimate objects. Unsurprisingly a banana appears, as well as a hot dog sausage.

This is overly sexualised yet I have to commemorate them on showing safe sex by including a condom. So kudos to Chris Campbell on this sex ed class music video! I suppose the video can be considered educational, teaching teenagers certain things that they need to be told, even if they already think they know it. Clever, educational, hilarious and totally sexualised, this music video for Sex is something I'll never forget.
