In an interpretation of Rupert Holmes'1979 Billboard No.1 hit, Escape (The Pi a Colada Song), DJ Cassidy, Shaggy, and Rayvon have joined forces to produce a fresh take on the yacht-rock classic. With the reworked title, If You Like Pi a Coladas, the song brings a fitting tropical summer vacation vibe as Rayvon and Shaggy lend their 'island boy' librettos in the verses.
The new video, directed by Joseph and Mia Michele Labisi, pays homage to the 1989 cult comedy film, "Weekend At Bernie's," and sees DJ Cassidy take on the hilarious role of "deceased party host" Bernie, originally played by actor Terry Kiser, who makes a special cameo in the video by reuniting with his original co-star, Jonathan Silverman, who also appears. The scenes were filmed on location in Miami Beach in collaboration with Malibu , the go-to brand for Pi a Coladas.
