Music videos

Official video

The music video for "Hot-n-Fun" was directed by Jonas Åkerlund. It was released June 17, 2010 on to their official website.[3] The video features N.E.R.D. driving through the desert picking up female hitchhikers in their Kaws-painted Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible. Later they party with the hitchhikers around a bonfire. Nelly Furtado appears singing solely in separate scenes, first in the sky, second in the bonfire. N.E.R.D. paid homage to The Beatles' Yellow Submarine and the Magical Mystery Tour, calling it a psychedelic ride. The video incorporates styles from the late '60s and early '70s.[4] As of February 2011, "Hot-n-Fun" has obtained over 5 million views on N.E.R.D.'s VEVO account on YouTube.[5]

Alternative video

A second video was released in late August, to the Boys Noize remix. The alternative video does not feature Furtado and is mostly made up of tour footage and live performances.[6] It premiered on to N.E.R.D.'s official website a month after the single's release to promote the "Hot-n-Fun" remix EP.[3]
