Back in July we spotted scantily clad members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers shooting the music video for “Go Robot,” a track off their new album, The Getaway, which was released in June, according to the Brooklyn Reporter.

The four minute 28-second video is a surreal homage to the 1977 cult classic Saturday Night Fever and is shot at the same spots on the Bath Beach-Bensonhurst border, under the elevated subway tracks. The video, released Friday, features lead singer and band co-founder Anthony Kiedis’ reenacting some of Fever lead John Travolta’s most famous scenes — grabbing a slice at Lenny’s Pizza on 86th Street, getting groovy at the disco. Only, Kiedis does it all not in Travolta’s three-piece suit but white body paint and a jockstrap.

Take a look for yourself, but be warned: there’s a lot of booty.

    Interesting. I didn’t know that the Cigar Emporium moved from 86th to 18th (right across from Key Food). I guess they play fast and loose with our geography the same way SNF did.

    I dont see the homage. I see a clown walking naked in my old neighborhood.

    Hey Red Hot Chili Peppers . I liked it better when the Beastie Boys did it first 27 years ago.
