Mika Gets Roughed Up For ‘Kick-Ass’ Music Video

The UK’s girl-blaming pop sensation Mika is now soul grooving to his “Kick-Ass” single in a new music video. The verdict? Dude can sing, but I’m not sure if he’s a perfect choice to market the movie. Well, maybe to teens.

Mika kicks off the video looking worse for the wear in a scenario that makes him resemble Kick-Ass’ secret identity Dave Lizewski – at least the film’s version as played by Aaron Johnson (or maybe even Harry Potter?).

The video’s pretty much a straight commercial for the film and its soundtrack, which drops March 30. In terms of content, it consists of roughly 80 percent “Kick-Ass” movie footage. Soundtrack vids are notoriously terrible as a rule, however, so I think MIka and company do a decent job of at least incorporating the artists’ obligatory face time without resorting to completely hokey nonsense.

Don’t get me wrong, hokey nonsense can be awesome. I will forever dig Huey Lewis’ obnoxious “Back to the Future” crosspromo. Still, I really appreciate the remarkably harmless Mika refraining from actually fighting anyone in the vid. That would’ve treaded on R. Kelly’s “Gotham City” territory of terrible.

See what you think after the jump.
