German dance act Cascada haven’t had a US hit since their suspicious Lady Gaga/”Just Dance”-sounding “Evacuate The Dancefloor” creeped into the Top 40 two years ago. But in the meantime, it sure has been fun watching the band knock off various other pop hits while concocting their own “original” singles. The latest victim in the “who’s Cascada ripping from now” game: Britney Spears, and her Circus jam “If U Seek Amy.” Watch the video for Natalia Horler & Co.’s same-sounding “Au Revoir” below.
Gosh — it even looks like Natalie spent a whole 10 minutes dolling herself up to look like Britney in this clip. (Granted, that’s probably nine minutes more than Britney usually spends when she heads off to Starbucks.) Here’s hoping that posing for Playboy really sends her career into the stratosphere.
And kudos to Cascada for finally working their way up to spring 2009, when “If U Seek Amy” was released as a single. At this rate, we’ll be expecting similar knockoffs of “My Life Would Suck Without You,” “Paparazzi” and “I Gotta Feeling” to follow.
