Pentatonix: New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Music Video From Group

Pentatonix has released its latest video, an original song inspired by the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies, which hits theaters this weekend.

The song, which is about one-minute and 30 seconds, was given the title “We Are Ninjas.”

“The ideas is we’re kind of riffing off the turtles,” said director Melissa Bolton-Klinger in a behind-the-scenes clip. “Dark alleyway scenes, kind of West Side Story meets ninjas.”

“Long before our days begins/What every hero needs/Is a big ‘ol greasy piece,” is an example of one the lines.

The song was just released a day ago but it has relatively few views–about 500,000–compared to some of Pentatonix’s other videos.

For instance, one of the group’s more famous videos was a take on Little Drummer Boy, released around Christmas. That video has racked up almost 35 million views.

However, as the movie release date gets closer, the video may blow up similar to some of the other ones.
