A Tribute to J.J. Abrams

Asger Lindgaard, Denmark, 2013

6 min.DK/Short fictionMusic videos

In 2009, Danish movie critic Johan Albrechtsen met Hollywood director J.J. Abrams ('Star Trek', 'Super 8') and rapped for the filmmaker during an interview. Abrams enjoyed it so much he asked Johan to 'record it'. Four years later, Johan assembled a talented film crew and some of Denmark's leading hip-hoppers to write a rap song and produce a music video for Abrams. This is the finished result - a short film that not only celebrates Abrams and his 'Star Trek' films, but also the awesomeness of being a nerd. Featuring critically acclaimed Danish rappers Tue Track and Per Vers and cameos by renowned actors Tom Cruise and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, this video has to be seen to be believed!
