Todrick Hall loves WeHo. But then who doesn’t?
Hall’s latest video is “Beauty and the Beat Boots,” a paean to the Creative City’s Boystown district that features a Disney-esque princess on an adventure in West Hollywood in which she encounters Lance Bass, Frankie Grande, Ross Matthews, RuPaul and of course Todrick Hall. And walks by the Abbey, Mickey’s, Revolver and Flaming Saddle and ducks into The Block Party, which bills itself the “gayest store on earth.” To mix it up in that predominately gay neighborhood, the Beauty, played by comedian Colleen Ballinger, also gets the attention of some fabulous lesbians, most notably comedian Fortune Feimster.
Since it was posted yesterday on YouTube the video already garnered more than 200,000 views.
Hall also was the creative genius behind “Alice in WeHoland,” a humorous West Hollywood-themed parody of Taylor Swift’s hit song “Shake It Off” commissioned by the City of West Hollywood. The dance-filled video offers viewers a colorful twist on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland set to crosswalk safety lyrics, written by Hall, about curbing smartphone use and walking and driving safely.
Hall is going on tour with live performances of some of his video skits. And on Aug. 31 MTV will launch a show at 10 p.m. on Monday nights that takes viewers behind the scenes in their productions.
