The Vamps Show Us Their Kung Fu Fighting Skills In Our Exclusive Behind The Scenes Vid
Join us as we go behind the scenes of their ass-kicking new video for Kung Fu Panda 3...
The band and director Frank Borin were kind enough to invite us down on set a few weeks ago to film all the behind the scenes magic of the vid where Bradley gets a scrub down, James fits SO many dumplings in his mouth and the guys get their first taste of wire work.
On the concept of the vid, James told us: "we're being trained into being Kung Fu masters by Po himself. We're all learning different techniques and skills, all necessary requirements to be these masters."
In the studio there's a lot of green screen action to which Tristan added: "We haven't done green screen before but we like acting, it's fun we're enjoying it and it's something different - we're always open minded on these things."
A massive hit in the 70s, 'Kung Fu Fighting' was a No.1 in many countries worldwide. "It's ridiculously good," Bradley said of the original they're covering.
"We forgot how good it was. We didn't wanna kind of try and rip it off, we wanted to do our own version rather than an imitation. We wanted to take our own spin on it so it's a bit more synthy, it sounds a bit more how the second album sounds, it's a bit faster and hopefully people enjoy it. It's still got the 'HUH!' in there so that's good!"

The third film in the animated franchise once again features the voice talents of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogan and Lucy Liu, and finds Po reuniting with his long-lost father before having to training a village of clumsy pandas to help him defeat the supernatural villain Kai who is sweeping across China, defeating all the kung fu masters.
Kung Fu Panda 3 is released in the UK and Ireland on 11th March.
