Zaena Becomes Napoleon Dynamite In New Music Video “Brand Name”
(CHICAGO, IL) – Directed by Jason Maek, ‘Brand Name’ is a tribute to the infamous dance scene in the cult-classic film, Napoleon Dynamite. In this spin-off, Zaena takes on the role of Napoleon Dynamite, but with subtle changes that are exemplary of the duo’s artistic style.
The fun hip-hop/house track is an instant anthem with Zaena celebrating all parts of herself, whether they are fake or not. The track also features several self-affirmations from transgender reality star Candyce.
“You might think this is a joke, but those are some of my best dance moves,” says Zaena. “Napoleon Dynamite is one of my favorite movies, so to recreate this for a video is something I can definitely scratch off my bucket list.”
‘Brand Name’ is the ninth music video Zaena x Jason Maek have released since February. No word yet if it is leading to a full-length project, however, the duo is not shutting down the idea.
Jason Maek stated, “We might release one soon. Right now, we are having a lot of fun just releasing song after song and hearing what fans have to say about them.”
‘Brand Name’ is available on YouTube, Spotify, and all other streaming platforms. Check out the official video here.
