Fatboy Slim – “Weapon Of Choice” (Dir. Spike Jonze); Or, When Christopher Walken Showed Off His Dancing Prowess

In 2000–01, much-acclaimed music video/film director Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Her, Adaptation) directed the music video for Fatboy Slim’s 2001 single “Weapon Of Choice”, a video which sees Academy Award winner Christopher Walken dancing and flying around an empty Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles. 

Choreographed by Spike Jonze, Michael Rooney, and Christopher Walken (who himself trained as a dancer/tap dancer in musical theatre before pursuing an acting career), the video won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Music Video as well as six MTV Video Music Awards in 2001.
