Ellen DeGeneres has appeared in her first promo ad for the Oscars, and fans of the talk-show comedian won’t be surprised to hear that her love for dance was on full show.
Accompanied by around 250 backup dancers, Ellen is seen dancing through the Warner Bros backlot and lip-syncing to “The Walker”, a song by the Fitz and the Tantrum.
Paul FeIg, who brought us “Bridesmaids” and “The Heat”, directed the ad.
Check out The Academy website to catch a few behind the scenes vids, including an interview with FeIg and an excerpt from Ellen.
The Oscars will air Sunday March 2, 2014. It will be Ellen’s second appearance as host of the awards show.
