They’re back, pitches! In the first clip from ‘Pitch Perfect 2,’ the riff-off returns as YouTube sensation Flula faces off with the Barden Bellas — especially Rebel Wilson. Click inside to WATCH!
It’s almost time for Pitch Perfect 2 to hit theaters, so hopefully this exciting new clip keeps you satisfied for now. The Bellas are back, and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is ready to take on their international competitors, Das Sound Machine, which includes YouTube star Flula in an amazing cameo. So, who will take the riff-off crown?
‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Riff-Off: Rebel Wilson & Flula Face Off
It’s on! For the first time since the film was announced we are finally getting a look at some of the performances in Pitch Perfect 2, and that includes the return of the riff-off!
In the sequel, the riff-off appears to be going down inside of a house — likely under the guise of a party hosted by David Cross‘ character. The clip begins as the Bellas and Das Sound Machine come face-to-face, and a digital spinner lands on their category: 90’s Hip Hop Jamz.
Das Sound Machine kicks it off, with their HBIC Birgitte Hjort Sørensen teaming up with Flula to kick off the battle with Montell Jordan‘s “This Is How We Do It.” Thankfully, Cynthia Rose (Ester Dean) is quick to cut them off with an awesome rendition of Lauryn Hill‘s “That Thing.”
Then, things start to get intense. Flula isn’t happy about being cut off, and jumps right into Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” — which he uses to insult Rebel’s Fat Amy with the lyrics “never trust a big butt and a smile.” Amy is having none of his sass, and quickly slays the competition with A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario.”
Unfortunately, the clip ends abruptly after Rebel takes over the scene, leaving us to wonder how it all ends. Thankfully, we’ll find out on May 15, 2015 when the highly anticipated sequel finally hits theaters!
