Christina Aguilera in Candyman Music Video

Christina Aguilera appeared as three versions of herself in Candyman, a music video using a 1940s war theme. Christina Aguilera dances and sings in three different hair colors, red, blonde and brunette, as if she were in a singing trio, a tribute to the Andrews Sisters. Many of Aguilera’s scenes are inspired by pin-up girls Judy Garland, Betty Grable, and Rita Hayworth.

Credits

Candyman was shot in Spain by director Matthew Rolston with Christina Aguilera, via Radical Media, with director of photography Crash and producer Barbara Benson. Editor was David Checel at Cut+Run.

Visual effects for Candyman were developed at RIOT, using artists from Santa Monica and New York. For the USO sequence, Aguilera was shot three times with a motion control camera. Not only does Aguilera sing, she also performs the jitterbug and had to repeat the dance moves exactly for the performances to match. RIOT’s team of compositors then had the task of rotoscoping the singer’s image on a virtual frame by frame basis to create all of the necessary matte elements.

Lyrics for Candyman

(Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine)
Candyman, candyman

(Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine)
Sweet, sugar, candyman

Hey, uh
I met him out for dinner on a Friday night
He really got me working up an appetite
He had tattoos up and down his arm
There’s nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm
He’s a one stop shop, makes the panties drop
He’s a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman
A sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman

Ooh, yeah, yeah
He took me to the Friday Club at Hollywood & Vine
We drank champagne and we danced all night
We shook the paparazzi for a big surprise (a big surprise)
The gossip tonight will be tomorrow’s headlines
He’s a one stop shop, makes my cherry pop
He’s a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman (ooh yeah)
A sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman

Shoo-Doo-bee-do-wee-dop-bop-shoo-be-wow-ba-wow (repeat)
ba-wow

Hey, yeah
Oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah ohhhhhhh

He’s a one stop shop, makes my cherry pop
He’s a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman (Oh!)
A sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman

Whoa, yeah
Well, by now I’m getting all bothered and hot
When he kissed my mouth he really hit the spot
He got lips like sugar cane, oh
Good things come for boys who wait

(Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine)
Candyman, candyman
(Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine)
Candyman, candyman

(Sweet, sugar, candyman)
He’s a one stop, gotcha hot, makin’ all the panties drop
(Sweet, sugar, candyman)
He’s a one stop, got me hot, makin’ my “uh” pop
(Sweet, sugar, candy man)
He’s a one stop, get it while it’s hot, baby don’t stop
(Sweet, sugar)

He got those lips like sugar cane
Good things come for boys who wait
He’s a one stop shop with a real big “uh”
He’s a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman
(Say what) a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman
(Say) a sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman, wooo
A sweet talkin’ sugar coated candyman

Oooh, whoa
Candyman, candyman
Candyman, candyman
Candyman, candyman…

Candyman, candyman
Candyman, Candyman…

Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine
(Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine)
Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine
(Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine)
Jane lost her grip and a down she fell
(Jane lost her grip and a down she fell)
Squared herself away as she let out a yell
(Squared herself away as she let out a yell)
